Potvin would increase his point total over the next two seasons going to 76 and then 98 points in his third NHL season. He would finish his career, playing only with the Islanders, with 1,052 points (310 goals, 742 assists).
As for awards, Potvin would win the Norris Trophy as the NHL's best defenseman, three times (1975-76, 1977-78 and 1978-79), and would be runner-up once, to a guy you might have heard of named Bobby Orr. He was also awarded the Calder Trophy as NHL Rookie of the Year in 1973-74.
Potvin was, of course, a key member of the Islanders' four straight Stanley Cup Championships in the early 1980s.
Did you know........Potvin's number 5 was the first number retired by the New York Islanders?
