Jerry Toppazzini
Jerry Toppazzini
Right Wing
Height: 6' 0"
Weight: 180
Shoots: Right
Born: Jul 29, 1931
Birthplace: Copper Cliff, ON, Canada
During the thirties, Copper Cliff was one of only three towns across Ontario that had an indoor rink. Jerry Toppazzini, his brother Zellio, Tim Horton, Tod Sloan and George Armstrong were all huddled together under that one roof, raising the level of each other's play.

When it came time to aspire beyond Copper Cliff, Toppazzini settled in with the Barrie Flyers of the OHA. During his final season, he led his club to a Memorial Cup victory on the strength of 106 points in 66 games.

After a successful season with the Hershey Bears of the AHL, Toppazzini joined the NHL in 1952, putting in short stops with the Bruins, Blackhawks and Red Wings before settling in with the Bruins again for the core of his career.

Topper earned his stripes as a hard-driving winger who could kill penalties and score his share of goals. In 1957-58, he set, what was at the time, an NHL record, scoring 7 short-handed goals in one season.

Toppazzini remained with the Bruins until 1964 before rounding out his on-ice career with the Pittsburgh Hornets of the AHL, the Los Angeles Blades of the WHL and the Port Huron Flags of the IHL.

Upon retirement, he coached in Port Huron, Springfield and Sudbury where he was named the OHL's coach of the year in 1976.
