    Fred Stanfield, a 14-year NHL veteran who played on 2 Stanley Cup-winning Bruins squads, died on 9/13 at age 77.

    Able to play both wings and the center position, Stanfield made it to the NHL in 1964-65, playing his first 3 seasons with the Blackhawks, before the big trade which sent Stanfield, Phil Esposito and others eastward to Boston, where Stanfield was a key contributor to the Bruins for 6 seasons.

    When the 1973-74 campaign began, Stanfield was part of the Minnesota North Stars roster, playing with them through 40 games of the '74-'75 schedule before being dealt to the Sabres, for whom he played until retiring after the 1977-78 season.

    He led the NHL in games played with 80 in 1975-76 and, while not shattering any goal scoring records during his career, he scored 20 or more goals in all 6 seasons he played with Boston, and a seventh time after he left.
