Subban's Competitive Nature –-Malcolm Subban is no stranger to competition. He was born in it. He was drafted into it. In fact, he can’t even walk into his own household without confronting it.

An aptitude to be competitive, rather than complacent, is what so many organizations want to see in the development of their young talent. Whether you’re the middle child of three boys, or an NHL draft pick in an ice-hockey family, you’ve got to feel at home when others try to outshine you.

Bruins a Hit at Fenway

BOSTON, MA –- There were some new faces in the Red Sox dugout this past Tuesday afternoon when Boston Bruins forwards Shawn Thornton and Daniel Paille, goaltender Tuukka Rask and free agent defenseman Mike Mottau settled in prior to taking an impromptu batting practice at Fenway Park.

Red Sox catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia, for one, was happy to see his Beantown sports cousins stop by and explained the close bond between the professional sports teams in New England.

Bruins Prospects Already in Action –- Bruins fans sweating for hockey news in these hot August days can find solace in the pool of B’s prospects competing in prestigious international junior camps and tournaments.

Pals Pitch In

MIDDLETON, MA – With blue skies, freshly cut grass and the sound of bagpipes washing over Ferncroft Country Club, Shawn Thornton’s 3rd annual “Putts and Punches for Parkinson’s” golf tournament was in full swing this afternoon.

Thornton worked alongside the Boston Bruins Foundation to host the event, and was happy to once again see support from the community and friends alike.

Alternate Captain Role Model for Caron – At 21 years of age, Jordan Caron is working towards earning a full-time role for the B’s. The Bruins forward says that being around hard-working farmers in his rural corner of Quebec inspired him to work hard and leave everything on the ice.

The Sayabec native can also draw inspiration from his workout partner, Patrice Bergeron, who knows what it takes to hit the NHL scene at a young age.

Bergeron Pushing Limits in Quebec City

Quebec City, QC – Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron won an Olympic gold medal one year, a Stanley Cup the next, and most recently the Frank J. Selke trophy for demonstrating an elite grasp on both sides of the puck.

But even that doesn’t satisfy him.

Cruising for a Cause

Boston Bruins Harbor Cruise

BOSTON, MA - Bruins fans and alumni boarded the M/V Provincetown II on a pleasant summer evening Wednesday night for the sixth annual Boston Bruins Harbor Cruise, hosted by the Boston Bruins Foundation and Bay State Cruise Lines.

Guests lined the World Trade Center Pier to set sail for a night out on the Harbor, with all proceeds benefiting the Bruins Foundation’s bike team for the Pan-Mass Challenge in early August to raise money for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

McQuaid Ready for Next Season – The Bruins locker room is comprised of players from all over the world. So it should come as no surprise that bostonbruinsTV was able to catch up with Prince Edward Island native, Adam McQuaid, in a wet and windy Charlottetown – the largest city in the smallest province of Canada, and the birthplace of the Confederation.

Marchand Back to His Roots - Less than a year ago, Brad Marchand was eating Cinnamon Toast Crunch out of the Stanley Cup.

When Bruins Beat checked in with him this summer in Canada, his appetite for winning hadn’t changed, especially with his favorite bowl in Hollywood.

"We start at nine," Marchand said of his daily morning session at the gym and bostonbruinsTV’s request to film it. "Be there early."

The Payne Train

WILMINGTON, MA When the Bruins selected a bruising power forward named Cody Payne in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, his agent told him he couldn’t have landed in a better spot.

It looks like his agent was right.

“I see a guy and if he’s in my train tracks there’s no doubt I’m gonna finish the checks,” Payne said after a physical final practice at Development Camp last Sunday.
