If you're willing to part with about $10,000, you can buy one of Don Awrey's three Stanley Cup rings.
Awrey was the consummate team player who always put the team's fortunes go ahead of any personal accomplishments. He was a classic defensive defenseman who got the same kick out of blocking a shot as of scoring a goal. He once went 153 games between goals, but likely blocked at least one shot in each of those contests.
Awrey was a mean customer, known for his high elbows. He learned that from his regular defense partner, Ted Green.
"I was not well-liked by most of the guys I played against, especially the right wingers," Don said. "Guys going into the corners with me would try to punish me at the same time. So when that happened I would just raise my elbows a little to protect myself. I used to have some pretty good battles in those corners. And there is one player I can pick out who really gave me the roughest time and that was Bill Fairbairn. Billy and I used to beat the living daylights out of each other in the corners. We never made things easy on each other. If Billy went into the corner first, I would really give it to him. And if I went into the corner first he would really give it to me. But we never really had any physical fights against each other. "

The same Boston Globe article mentions the following of former Bruin Rick Middleton:
Ex-Bruin Rick Middleton continues to expand his business wings, recently releasing his "Nifty16" dessert bar in the Crosby's Marketplace food stores (Concord, Georgetown, Hamilton, Salem, Marblehead, and Manchester-by-the-Sea). The chilled delicacies, approximately 8 1/2 inches square, are Middleton's interpretation of a favorite Canadian-made treat he enjoyed while growing up in Scarborough, Ontario. "OK, the recipe," said chef Middleton, who got a huge helper on the venture from Vincent Frattura of Hoffs Bakery in Medford. "Let's see . . . ganache chocolate on top, butter cream in the middle, with a base of graham cracker, coconut and more chocolate." Retail price: $8.99. "Just something I loved as a kid," said the 53-year-old Nifty. "And I could never find anything like it in the US." His aim, said Middleton, is for other chains and restaurants to take on the treat. Part of the NESN broadcast team for Bruins games, Middleton also has worked for nearly 20 years with C.B. Sullivan Co., a New Hampshire-based wholesale catalog company that specializes in hair products.
