Bruins' Loss: Garnet Hathaway Emerges as Defensive Force in 2022-2023 NHL Season

Garnet Hathaway proved his mettle as a defensive powerhouse during the 2022-2023 NHL season, solidifying his position among the league's top shot-blocking forwards.

With an impressive tally of 83 blocked shots, he shared the fourth rank on the prestigious list.

Topping the chart were Auston Matthews and Elias Pettersson, registering 92 and 89 blocked shots respectively, closely trailed by Anze Kopitar with 87.


• 1st - Auston Matthew's - 92
• 2nd - Elias Petterson - 89
• 3rd - Anze Kopitar - 87
• T-4th - Garnet Hathaway - 83
• T-4th - Zach Parise - 83

Hathaway's invaluable contributions were duly recognized, elevating his status as a coveted asset for the Boston Bruins.


However, constrained by salary cap limitations, the Bruins were unable to retain his services.

Consequently, Hathaway chose to sign a lucrative two-year, $2.735 million contract with the Philadelphia Flyers, leaving the Bruins to lament their loss.
