Harry Sinden, Hockey Hall of Famer...and Your Mentor?

Harry Sinden Hockey Hall of Famer and SMWW mentorThe power structure within the Boston Bruins has been in place for a few years now. Former Bruins great Cam Neely has worn the crown of team president since 2010, his former teammate with the Bruins, Don Sweeney, enters his second year as the team’s general manager.

But there is another voice in the room, one that used to employ both of them as players. Hockey Hall of Famer Harry Sinden, who drafted Sweeney in 1984 and traded for Neely two years later, was once the most powerful voice in the Boston Bruins organization, now the 83-year old settles for being influential.

“To see them [Sweeney & Neely] come here and do so well as players, and then move into the management of this team and run this whole operation,” Sinden told the Boston Globe, “I’ve got to feel good about it. I do. I feel good about it.”

Since 1966 Sinden has had a major role in the Bruins organization, acting as coach, general manager, team president, chief executive and now, a wise mind for Sweeney and Neely to consult with.

In addition to the consulting that Sinden still performs with the Bruins, he is also one of our esteemed mentors, teaching our Hockey GM & Scouting course alongside Peterborough Petes GM Mike Oke.Harry Sinden and Bobby Orr
