Playing Career[edit | edit source]
Cashman played his junior hockey as a teammate of Bobby Orr's on the Oshawa Generals of the OHA. He played parts of three seasons in the minor leagues for the Oklahoma City Blazers and the Hershey Bears before making the Bruins' squad for good in 1969.
Cashman played his entire NHL career with the Boston Bruins (1964–65, 1967–83) as the hard-grinding left wing on the era's most formidable forward line with superstar centre Phil Esposito and right wing Ken Hodge, and was on Stanley Cup winning teams in 1970 and 1972. His best season was in 1974, when he scored 30 goals and 59 assists to finish 4th in the league in points, played in the All-Star Game and was named to the NHL Second All-Star team. He served as the captain of the Bruins from the 1978 season until 1983.
Cashman is considered by many inside the hockey world to be one of the greatest fighters in the history of the NHL.
