Bobby Orr Statue to be Unveiled
Bobby Orr Statue Ceremony on May 10th at 1:00 p.m.
BOSTON, MA - The Boston Bruins and TD Garden announced today that a bronze statue depicting the famous scene of Bobby Orr flying through the air immediately after scoring "The Goal" that clinched the Bruins 1970 Stanley Cup Championship over the St. Louis Blues will be unveiled at a ceremony on May 10th at 1:00 p.m. ET.

Present for the ceremony, which is being held on the 40th anniversary of "The Goal" and the Bruins four-game sweep of the St. Louis Blues to win the Stanley Cup on May 10, 1970, will be Bobby Orr, Bruins Owner, Jeremy Jacobs, Mayor of Boston, Thomas M. Menino, TD Garden President, John Wentzell, the sculptor of the statue, Harry Weber, and Orr's teammates John Bucyk and Derek Sanderson.

The larger than life sized bronze statue (110% life sized, weighing more than 600 pounds) which will permanently be installed in front of the TD Garden at the mouth of the West Walkway outside of the arena facing Causeway St., has been designed and sculpted by Weber. Weber, has designed and sculpted a number of famous works including "The Captains' Return" in St. Louis, MO, “The Plaza of Champions” in St. Louis, MO, and “Doug Flutie” in Boston, MA.

In the creating the statue, Weber wrote: "The main objective of the statue of Bobby Orr is to faithfully capture both the likeness of this great defenseman, and the spirit and emotion of the few seconds on May 10, 1970. ‘The Goal’ has become a defining moment, not only for the Bruins, but for the sport of Hockey."

The creation and installation of the statue is being funded entirely by the Boston Bruins and the TD Garden as a gift to the City of Boston and the fans of the Boston Bruins.

Further details regarding the ceremony and the media availability for all of the participants will be released in the days leading up to the event.
