We are very sad to report the passing of #Bruins D Gary Doak, a great man and a true Bruin. RIP Doakie.
We are sorry to report the passing of former Bruins/Braves defenseman Bob Stewart, who passed away on Feb. 3. Bob was the B's first pick (13th overall) in the 1970 NHL draft.
On February 23, 1972 he was traded to the California Golden Seals with Reggie Leach and Rick Smith for Carol Vadnais and Don O'Donoghue.
Bob was a solid blueliner, who had an excellent career with The Seals, Barons, Penguins and Blues.
