"Michael Dean Bossy" or, according to some sources, "Michael Jean Bossy" is a Canadian former ice hockey player who played for the New York Islanders for his entire career and was a crucial part of their four-year reign as Stanley Cup champions in the early 1980s. Among many other remarkable achievements, he was the only player in NHL history to score consecutive Stanley Cup winning goals, in 1982 and 1983, the only player to record four game-winning goals in one series (1983 Conference Final), is the NHL's all-time leader in average goals scored per regular season game, and is one of only five players to score 50 goals in 50 games.

I guess as I get older I get tired of telling people I scored more than 50 nine consecutive years. Everything I'm saying makes it sound like I'm bitter, but I'm not whatsoever. It's just that when you do something well, like our team did, you'd like to get recognized for it.

I'm always extremely honored to be applauded the way I am when I get back here and have any kind of liaison with the fans. I'm humbled by it.

I do a lot of promoting for how good [the Islanders] were.
