Douglas Bradford “Brad” Park (born July 6, 1948) is a Canadian former professional ice hockey player. A defenseman, Park played in the National Hockey League (NHL) for the New York RangersBoston Bruins and Detroit Red Wings. Considered one of the best defensemen of his generation, and named to the all-star team several times, the best years of his career were overshadowed by superstar Bobby Orr, who was briefly his teammate. He finished second in the James Norris Memorial Trophy voting six times (four times to Orr, and twice to Denis Potvin). He was elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1988. In 2017 Park was named one of the ‘100 Greatest NHL Players’ in history.
