John Blum
John Blum
Defenseman
Number: 33
Height: 6' 3"
Weight: 205

Born: Oct 8, 1959
Birthplace: Detroit, MI, United States
Acquired: Signed as a free agent by Detroit on August 12, 1988.
Rugged defenseman John Blum played 250 games in the NHL with four different teams in the 1980s. He was utilized to play the body keep the front of the net clear while more talented teammates moved forward with the puck.

The native of Detroit was a force on the University of Michigan's blueline for four years and was placed on the WCHA second all-star team in 1981. He was signed as a free agent by the Edmonton Oilers but saw action in only a handful of NHL games. A trade to the Boston Bruins in March 1984 gave Blum a chance to play regularly.

Blum suited the hard-working "lunch-bucket crew" image of the Bruins. He was a regular for two years but was placed on waivers when the club made changes in 1986. He added a physical component to the Washington Capitals' blueline in 1986-87 before he was re-acquired by Boston to provide depth. Blum also played a few games with the Detroit Red Wings in 1988-89 before returning for a third stint in Boston the next season. He then spent five years in the minors before retiring in 1995.
