From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Bryan Joseph "Bugsy, Super Pest" Watson (born November 14, 1942 in Bancroft, Ontario) is a retired Canadian ice hockey player. He played the position of defenseman.

Watson began his NHL career with the Montreal Canadiens, and also played with the Detroit Red Wings, Oakland Seals, Pittsburgh Penguins, St. Louis Blues, and Washington Capitals. He finished his playing career with the Cincinnati Stingers of the World Hockey Association. Watson also coached the Edmonton Oilers for just 18 games in the 1980-81 season amassing a record of 4 wins, 9 losses and 5 ties before being replaced by Glen Sather (who eventually led the team to four Stanley Cups). In 878 NHL games, Watson scored 17 goals, had 135 assists, and amassed 2,212 penalty minutes. His aggressive playing earned him the nickname "Bugsy".

Today, Watson runs a sports bar called Bugsy's in Alexandria, Virginia, a suburb of Washington, D.C., which is frequented by Washington Capitals fans, and the Costello family from Pittsburgh, during the NHL season.
