Derek Sanderson - 1967 Topps

Derek Michael “Turk” Sanderson (June 16, 1946-) served up the pass to Bobby Orr in the 1970 Stanley Cup Finals against the St. Louis Blues that Orr buried past Jacques Plante to help the Bruins capture their first Stanley Cup championship in 29 years. Sanderson starred at center for the Niagara Falls Flyers of the Ontario Junior Hockey League, leading them to the 1965 Memorial Cup title. Two years later, he was named the Eddie Powers Memorial Trophy winner, as the league’s leading scorer. Derek joined the Bruins in 1965, but on a permanent basis in 1967 centering their defensive forward line and penalty-killing unit. Following the 1967-68 season, Derek was named the 1968 Calder Memorial Trophy winner as the NHL’s top defenseman, posting 24 goals and 25 assists in 71 games. He centered Ed Westfall and Don Marcotte and became one of the best defensive forward in the National Hockey League as well as one of the best faceoff men in the business. Turk scored 20 or more goals in four of his first five campaigns with the Bruins before he took his game to the World Hockey Association in 1972. Derek played 13 seasons in the NHL with the Bruins (1965-1972, 1972-1974), the New York Rangers (1974-1975), the St. Louis Blues (1975-1977), the Vancouver Canucks (1977) and the Pittsburgh Penguins (1978) and the Philadelphia Blazers (1972) of the WHA. He helped the Bruins to the Promised Land for a second time in 1972 as Boston topped the New York Rangers in six games. Sanderson lived a playboy lifestyle that eventually caught up with him. Injuries and addictions resulted in a downturn to his career during the late 1960s/early 1970s and he was moved from team to team until injuries took their toll and he was forced to retire. Derek Sanderson finished his career with 202 regular season goals and 452 assists in 598 games. In the playoffs, he registered 18 goals and 12 assists in 56 games while bringing home two Stanley Cup championships.
