SPRINGFIELD, Mass (WWLP) – The Boston Bruins third annual fan fest returned to Springfield Friday. Fans were invited to join Bruins players and coaches in Forest Park from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Did you go to the fan fest? Send your fan photos to firstname.lastname@example.org. Following their Stanley Cup run, the team is taking part in a seven-city tour across New England. One of their stops took place Friday afternoon in Forest Park. Fans took part in different games, photo, and autograph opportunities with players and coaches. The team is supplying hockey gear for more than 5,000 kids who signed up for the Bruins Academy Learn to Play Program. One Bruins fan told 22News events like these expose the game of

He makes $750K with the big club and $70K in Providence with zero performance bonuses. This year was his first year in professional hockey, and he scored 30 points with Providence over 58 games. Down the stretch and with the Bruins playing well, coach Bruce Cassidy called up Kuhlman to finally get him a look at the NHL level.
Boston Bruins general manager Don Sweeney provided an update on how contract talks are going with defensemen Charlie McAvoy and Brandon Carlo.
The Bruins will open training camp three weeks from Friday, but restricted free agent defensemen Charlie McAvoy and Brandon Carlo remain unsigned. During the Bruins' Fan Fest tour stop in Leominster, Mass., Thursday, general manager Don Sweeney was asked about how that situation is playing out. “Not as fast as everybody would like,” Sweeney told BostonBruins.com's Michael Tolvo. “But that's just the nature of the business and every negotiation has its own timeline. We'll find a finish line at some point and time, Brandon and Charlie will be a part of our organization for a long time. We think really highly of them as players on and off the ice, we just have to find a common ground and we're working
The restricted free agent market has moved slowly across the NHL all summer, and the Boston Bruins are among those being impacted. With three notable RFAs to sign entering the offseason between Charlie McAvoy, Danton Heinen and Brandon Carlo, only Heinen has been signed, agreeing to a deal shortly before the two sides were set to hit an arbitration hearing. But with training camp just a few weeks away, both McAvoy and Carlo remain without new deals. So, what's going on? McAvoy's agent, Michael Curran, spoke to The Athletic's Fluto Shinzawa about the current state of negotiations. “The conversations have been going fine and they're still continuing,” Curran said. “Time will come where we find
It's August, the start of training camp is still weeks away, and the Boston Bruins have been relatively quiet on the transaction front for, well, pretty much the entire summer. In other words, the hockey landscape with regards to Bruins news is a barren wasteland — for better or for worse. But if you came to this very website in hopes of seeing the hot-take harpoon get launched over the signing of a defenseman to a professional tryout contract, well you might want to look elsewhere. The Bruins reportedly have signed veteran blueliner Alex Petrovic to a professional tryout contract. Boston Hockey Now's Alex Thomas had the news first, and it was confirmed in a couple other places later on. It was

He was there, not doing much, looking like a rookie or AHLer, and generally creating no real positive or negative buzz around himself. He was not worth your time nor anyone's at that point, and I don't think he made much of an impression on the coaching staff, because they sent him down after a couple of games, and we didn't think much of that. Then Connor Clifton honed his craft in the AHL, where he became

Today, he will be honored on stage for his winning design and assist in revealing the new Bruins Academy Kids Club logo, which incorporates his hand-drawn spoked-B.
