Meet Cheesy

Cheevers’ professional hockey career began in 1956 at the age of 16 when he played for the St. Michael’s Majors of the Ontario Hockey Association . He was owned by the Toronto Maple Leafs until the Boston Bruins drafted him in 1965. He spent six years in all in the minors until, by 1967 , he was the team’s number one goalie. He was a member of both the 1970 and 1972 Stanley Cup winning teams, gaining a reputation as a driven, “money” goaltender.
