ABOUT BERNIE PARENT

Bernard Marcel "Bernie" Parent (born April 3, 1945) is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey goaltender who played 13 National Hockey League(NHL) seasons with the Philadelphia Flyers, Boston Bruins, and Toronto Maple Leafs, and also spent one season in the World Hockey Association (WHA) with the Philadelphia Blazers. 

Parent is widely acknowledged as one of the greatest goaltenders of all time. During the 1973–74 and 1974–75 seasons, in what many consider the finest consecutive seasons ever by a goaltender, the Flyers won two Stanley Cups and Parent won the Vezina Trophy and Conn Smythe Trophy both seasons. In that two-year run of dominance, Parent posted 30 shutouts in regular and post season play combined. 

In 1984 he was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame, Parent was rated number 63 on The Hockey News' list of The Top 100 NHL Players of All-Time in 1998. Parent remains an iconic fan favorite in Philadelphia more than three decades after his retirement. On January 27, 2017, in a ceremony during the All-Star Weekend in Los Angeles, Parent was named one of the 100 Greatest NHL Players in history.
