Bob Turner

Position: D ▪ Shoots: Left
Height: 6-0 ▪ Weight: 170 lbs.
Born: January 31, 1934 in Regina, Saskatchewan
Died: February 7, 2005 (Aged 71)

Some stats:

-5 Top 10 Finishes in Defensive Point Shares
-70 Points in 478 Career Games

Montreal Canadiens website:

Serving as the teamís fifth defenseman, then the bottom man on the depth chart, the 6-foot, 170-pound rearguard accepted his lot without complaint. Turner was a reliable, if unspectacular presence, occasionally spelling the teamís top four and getting more ice time when injuries or infractions prevented his teammates from appearing.
Joe Pelletier

In total Turner would play 6 seasons in Montreal, scoring just 8 goals in those years. But his job was not about scoring goals, but rather preventing them. Turner took great pride in his trade
Turner might not have been my best pick but I still like the pick. He should provide some solid hockey for my team.
