Bio

Bobby Clarke Bio

Picture a smallish pro hockey player -- he's 5-foot-10 -- with a big, wet mop of curly hair atop his choirboy face. A huge smile lights up that face, a smile made even larger by the wide gap where his top front teeth once were. His eyes mischievously twinkle; he might even give you a wink. A trickle of blood streams down the side of his face and splashes onto his distinctive orange and black jersey decorated with a stylized "P" and the number 16. On the left chest of that jersey sits an oversized letter "C."

This can only be Bobby Clarke and, for a sizable portion of fans, he represented not just an overwhelming and fierce desire to win at all costs but the NHL of the 1970s itself.
