Legends of Hockey:
Since turning pro in 1991-92, right-winger Bill Guerin has utilized his speed and size to become of the NHL's best two-way forwards. The talented winger scored 14 goals for the Devils in 1992-93 then took his game up a notch with 25 goals and stellar defensive work the next year. His robust play also helped the club come within a game of reaching the Stanley Cup finals. The next year Guerin was a key factor when New Jersey swept the Detroit Red Wings to win their first Stanley Cup

Guerin returned to Boston in 2001-02 and scored a career high 41 goals and 66 points, while earning a silver medal at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City before becoming an unrestricted free agent during the off season and signing with the Dallas Stars.

Upon his arrival with Stars, Guerin has continued his hard-nose ways and following the 2003-04 season had surpassed the 300 goals and 1,200 penalty minutes. After his offensive totals dropped in the NHL 2005-06 regular season, the Dallas Stars decided not to re-sign the right winger. That same season, Guerin represented Team USA at the 2006 Winter Olympics.
