Learn More About Harry Sinden:

Harry Sinden has spent over 50 years as part of the Boston Bruins organization in varying roles starting from player, head coach to general manager, president and senior advisor to the club’s owner.   Sinden was a great defenseman but he never played in the NHL. He played defence for the minor team, Toronto Marlboro Bantams and then in the Ontario Hockey League on the Oshawa Generals from 1949 to 1953. After playing with Oshawa, Sinden played six seasons with the Whitby Dunlops who he captained in 1957 when the Dunlops won the Allan Cup. Also he won a silver medal in the 1960 Olympics as part of the Canadian National Men’s Hockey Team.

Harry Sinden coached minor league hockey for six seasons starting in 1960 and became head coach of the Boston Bruins in 1966.  Sinden was the youngest coach in the league at age 33 and the team finished with the worst record in the league his first season. Sinden got increasingly better and in the 1969-1970 season, Sinden coached the Bruins to the Stanley Cup Championship, their first in 29 years.

Sinden retired from coaching just after the Bruins won the Cup due to his rocky relationship with Bruins management.  He was named head coach and manager of Team Canada during the 1972 Summit Series despite spending two years away from hockey.  After the successful Summit Series, he was offered the position of General Manager of the Bruins—a position he held for 28 years.  Sinden remained with the Bruins as President.  During his reign, the Boston Bruins had 30 consecutive playoff appearances.   Harry Sinden was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1983 as a builder.
