Daniel Sallows The Bleacher Report March 27, 2010

Brian Leetch did it all over his decorated NHL career, from a Stanley Cup and Conn Smythe Trophy in 1994, to a pair of Norris Trophies, he was truly one of the elite defensemen ever to play in the game. And, it all got started while playing with the Eagles at Boston College.

In his short-lived NCAA career, Leetch scored 9 goals and 47 points over 37 games at Boston College, before making the jump to the pros and winning the Calder for the NHL’s top rookie.

He is 8th on the all-time list for most points by a defenseman in the NHL, with 1,028 over 1,205 career games.
