Bobby Clarke began his prestigious hockey career with the expansion Philadelphia Flyers in 1969. The sharp shooting Clarke, who didn’t let his diabetic frame control his career, helped make a contender of the Philadelphia Flyers. Clarke captained a cast of notoriously aggressive players who were nicknamed the Broad Street Bullies because of their physical style of play. The intimidating force of the Flyers helped them win two consecutive Staley Cups in 1974 and 1975, becoming the first expansion team to accomplish this feat. Clarke won this second of three Hart Memorial Trophies during the Flyers 1975 Stanley Cup season.
