RIP indeed.

Any day we lose a Bruin is not a good day.

My aunt's favorite player. Oh well, a sad day for all older Bruins fans everywhere. And no, I never saw him play.

damn. just when we were feeling good here in Bruins Nation.
I remember old school Bruins books and stuff, and Topper's scarred face still stands out for me. Old time hockey.

God rest his soul. And may He bless his family.

damn.

Rest in peace, Mr. Toppazini. Thank you for being a Bruin, I'll just bet you had some awesome stories to pass on about playing way back when.

Condolences to his family and friends.

I remember Topper well. A really good Bruin. Played with Fleming Mackell(#8) and Leo Labine. He had a brother, Zello, I believe, who also played in the NHL. May he rest in peace, God bless him.

Jerry together with Charlie Burns formed a great PK duo for the early 1960 Bruins.

Yup, Zellio played for the Bruins and the Rangers and was a longtime star with the Providence Reds.

I remember JT back when I was in grade school. Surprised Axellein hasn't posted about this.

Either Jerry Toppazini's son or nephew played for Providence College in the early to made 80's i believe.

RIP

I used to watch him play for the Reds when they were a championship team. He was a high flying RW who was an amazing offensive force.
