Learn More about Gerry Cheevers:
Gerry Cheevers was an NHL and WHA goalie that was active from 1956 to 1980. He is known for his iconic stitch pattern goal tender mask that was the first custom mask of the era. Every time the mask spared Cheevers from getting stitches, more stitches were added to the mask. Gerry Cheevers was a “flopping style” goaltender that was often down on his knees and relied on his body to block the puck. He often acted as a third defenseman, coming out of the crease to prevent the goal.
Gerry Cheevers played for the Boston Bruins during the 1965-1966 season until 1972 and again from 1976 until his retirement in 1980. He was the Bruins number one goalie and led them to two Stanley Cup Championships in 1970 and 1972. Cheevers also went undefeated in 32 games in 1972, an NHL record that still stands today. Gerry Cheevers was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1985.
Post retirement, Cheevers had a successful coaching career, as head coach of the Boston Bruins for 5 years. He subsequently became a commentary for the Hartford Whalers and the Bruins.
