Some of Bobby Orr's best highlights

He skated with such fluidity he would make water jealous, but the easiest way to describe Bobby Orr is with one word: legendary. 

The Hall of Fame former NHL blue-liner transcended the typical role of the defenceman and carved out an unparalleled career for himself. 

His accolades include eight Norris Trophies, three straight Hart Trophies (1970-72), two Stanley Cups and two Conn Smythe Trophies, just to name a few. 

Airing Monday night on CBC's The National, Orr will give a candid interview with Peter Mansbridge to talk about his illustrious career.

But it might be easiest to encapsulate his professional hockey life with a collection of some of the various highlights he has produced. Take a look at the videos below and see for yourself:

And if that wasn't enough, enjoy the smooth skater some more: 

One of his iconic moments for which he was immortalized on a statue — the infamous 'flying goal' in 1970 that won the Stanley Cup for the Boston Bruins over the St. Louis Blues in overtime:
