Bio

Ed Westfall Bio

Westfall, a forward whose checking and skating skills were good enough to allow him to play as a defenseman early in his career, was a two-time Stanley Cup champion with the Boston Bruins and the first captain of the New York Islanders.

Westfall made his NHL debut with the Bruins in 1961-62, and by 1967, he was part of a checking line that became one of the best in the NHL as the Bruins added stars like Bobby Orr and Phil Esposito, enabling Westfall to thrive in a defense-oriented role. He and Derek Sanderson also became one of the League's best pairs on the penalty-kill.
