Boston Bruins

It may be the end of an era. The 43-year-old captain of the Boston Bruins, Zdeno Chara, has yet to sign a contract for the 2020-21 season. There has been no definite word on if he’s ready to retire or thinking of signing with another team, though there are plenty of rumors and speculation. Related: The Value of Zdeno Chara's Leadership It’s fair to think that he may just be waiting to see what the NHL’s COVID-19 plan is for the next season and that may have some influence on his final decision.

Whether this is his last season or not, the Bruins are going to need to select a new captain in the near future. He has been the ultimate leader in Boston, a hardworking team player on the ice and an admirable individual off of it. But there are a few options currently on...

Toronto Maple Leafs

In today's NHL rumor rundown, are the Boston Bruins trying to trade a young prospect defenseman in order to upgrade their blue line? Meanwhile, the Toronto Maple Leafs have one of their prospect d-men coming to North America in preparation for next season. The Ottawa Senators aren't getting good news when it comes to one of their goaltenders and congratulations go out to Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane. Bruins Trying to Trade Vaakanainen According to a report from Boston Bruins insider Joe Haggerty, the Bruins are in the process of trying to trade Urho Vaakanainen. The hope is that they can use the prospect to upgrade their blue line. Urho Vaakanainen (Amy Irvin / The Hockey Writers) He writes that the team has not improved over the offseason and to get something, you need to give something. From Haggerty: To simply re-sign restricted free agent winger Jake DeBrusk isn’t going to move the needle very much when it comes to fan expectations, and...

Bruins History

This is a pretty important date for Boston in National Hockey League history. Nov. 20 has also been pretty kind to players and fans in Toronto and Philadelphia, as well. Two legendary goaltenders got their numbers retired in the same ceremony and one of the legends in Detroit accomplished something only one other player had in league history. Old School Bruins Memories The Boston Garden was one of the most historic arenas in the history of the NHL and, on Nov. 20, 1928, the Boston Bruins took to its ice for the very first time. After playing at the Boston Arena for four seasons, the Bruins hosted the Montreal Canadiens in their new home. The rivals from across the border sent a big crowd of nearly 16,000 fans out the doors in foul moods after beating the home team 1-0. The Bruins called the Boston Garden home for 67 years. A decade later, on Nov. 20, 1938, Tiny Thompson became the first goaltender in league history to record...

Bruins Prospects

Jack Studnicka is arguably the most exciting prospect in the Boston Bruins’ pipeline and one of the closest to earning a roster spot. Even if it didn't show up on the stat sheet, he was one of the few bright spots during the 2020 Playoffs, and despite coming in with only two games of experience, he used the opportunity to show he belongs in the NHL. Heading into the 2020-21 season, fans are going to want to keep their eye on Studnicka. Studnicka's Early Career Studnicka was born in Tecumseh, Ontario on Feb. 18, 1999. He was selected in the first round of the 2015 Ontario Hockey League Entry Draft by the Oshawa Generals. In the 2016-17 season, he recorded 18 goals and 52 points in 64 games and scouting reports noted his excellent skating skills and high hockey IQ. Studnicka with the Oshawa Generals.

The Evolution of Brad Marchand

Boston Bruins left-winger Brad Marchand has developed himself from a fourth-line pest into one of the NHL's premier scorers. His path to joining the NHL elite was atypical, however.
