Due to his diabetes, many teams were skeptical about drafting Bobby Clarke. He was still available in the second round of the 1969 draft when the Flyers took him 17th overall. So began his 15 seasons with the club. He proved to be a fierce competitor with an unparalleled work ethic and was named team captain at age 23. His rough and, at times, controversial style of play gave him the title of one of hockey's most hated villains on the sport's most hated team, but he was beloved in Philly where he led the Broad Street Bullies to two Stanley Cups. Upon retirement, he had amassed 358 career goals and 1,453 penalty minutes. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1987 and served as the Flyers' GM from 1994 to 2006.
