Derek Sanderson Booking Agent Details

Derek Sanderson is a retired professional ice hockey player and two-time Stanley Cup champion who played in the NHL from 1965-1978. Sanderson won the Eddie Powers Memorial Trophy as the top scorer in the junior Ontario Hockey Association in 1966-67. He emerged as a full-time player with the Boston Bruins in 1967-68, quickly establishing himself as an impact performer. His rookie campaign of 24 goals and 25 assists earned him the NHL’s Calder Memorial Trophy and Rookie of the Year honors. Sanderson was a big part of the dominant Bruins teams of the early 1970s and became known for physical play and his penalty killing abilities.

In Game 7 of the 1970 Stanley Cup Finals after the Bruins and St. Louis Blues entered overtime with the game tied at 3-3, Sanderson notched an assist on Bobby Orr’s famous game-winning goal only 40 seconds into the period, which handed Boston its first championship since 1941. Sanderson scored at least 24 goals in all but one season for Boston from 1967-1972. Defense on the penalty kill was always his pillar, and at the time of his retirement, he held the NHL record in shorthanded goals. Sanderson played for five NHL teams in his career before retiring in 1978.
