Scarborough native Rick Middleton began his professional hockey career as the first-round draft pick for the New York Rangers in 1974. He finished off the season with a flourish as rookie of the year in the American Hockey League, and then played left wing with the Rangers for two years before he was traded to Boston in 1976, where he scored a hat-trick in his first-ever game as a Bruin. By 1985, Middleton had earned his place as captain of the team. Middleton, who was recognized as one of very few players in the NHL who was strong on both the power-play and as a penalty killer, credits much of his success in hockey to Don Cherry, who very early in his career encouraged him to work on his defense.


Middleton also credits his wife and family for nurturing him after he suffered a serious injury in mid-career after getting hit in the head with a puck in the days when not many NHL players wore helmets.


In 1981 and 1984 Middleton was a member of the Canadian team in the Canada Cup. But his biggest success in international hockey, he claimed, happened in 1984 while he was a member of coach Scotty Bowman's team when he played on a line with Wayne Gretzky and Gilbert Perreault. In 1987-88 Middleton played his last of his 12 seasons with the Bruins. He retired from the game after recording 448 goals, 540 assists for 988 in 1005 games.
