This Week In Bruins History: Recchi Records 900th Assist


Out of Mark Recchi's 956 assists he only recorded 65 in a Bruins uniform, but his greatest milestone recorded for this statistic was wearing the black and gold.  On November 10, 2009 he tallied assist 900 in vintage Mark Recchi style by finding a streaking Daniel Paille with a perfect tape to tape pass.  Paille broke away with  the puck that was handed to him on a silver platter by Recchi and ripped a shot past Pittsburgh goalie Marc Andre Fleury.

Mark Recchi only played as a Bruins for three season, however the impact he made was unforgettable.  He had a long and one of the most successful careers in the history of the league.  One of the key reasons why the Bruins, Hurricanes and Penguins won the three Stanley Cup Championships with Recchi on their respective rosters is because of those 956 assist.  Not to mention his 577 career goals.  Where ever he played, even if it was the hated Flyers or Canadiens, fans loved him and opponents and fans of the rival teams respected him..

 

Here are some assist achievements during Mark Recchis career:

 

Scored is first NHL goal and assist on January 20, 1989 against the Winnipeg Jets.
