Long before Chris Bordeleau and B.J. MacDonald began evaluating talent as full-time employees at NHL Central Scouting, they were skating with and against some of the very best in NHL history.
Bordeleau won a Stanley Cup with the Montreal Canadiens in 1968-69 while playing in 13 games alongside Hockey Hall of Fame members Yvan Cournoyer, Jacques Lemaire, Jean Beliveau, Henri Richard and "Gump" Worsley.
MacDonald not only helped Wayne Gretzky score the first of his NHL-best 894 goals with the Edmonton Oilers in 1979-80, but he also was part of the second-highest scoring line in the League that season. The G-M-C line, which consisted of Gretzky centering MacDonald at right wing and Brett Callighen at left wing, had 120 goals and 289 points that season.
