BOSTON (AP) - It’s Milt Schmidt Night in Boston.

The Bruins honored the hockey Hall of Famer on Thursday night for his unique service to the team. He’s the only man to have served as Bruins captain, coach and general manager.

Schmidt received miniature replicas of the two Stanley Cups he won as a player, in 1939 and ‘41. Then he told the crowd: “The spoked ‘B’ is practically my family crest. And I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

Schmidt was a four-time All-Star and the 1951 Hart Trophy winner as the NHL MVP. He also was the GM for the 1970 and ‘72 champions.

He was the center on the “Kraut Line” with Woody Dumart and Bobby Bauer that was the first line in NHL history to finish 1-2-3 in league scoring.
