B's Tee Off for Charity at 9th Annual Golf Tourney

For the ninth consecutive year, Bruins players past and present traded in their hockey sticks for golf clubs—if only for a brief 18 holes—to compete in the Boston Bruins Golf Tournament presented by TD Bank.

B's See Character & Athleticism in Malcolm

Asked about the signing of the B’s first round pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli talked about an impressive body of work achieved by 18-year-old Malcolm Subban.

Seguin's Summer Winds Down

BostonBruins.com — The colors of the already-turning leaves and the changing weather in New England are sure signs that September is rapidly approaching and for many of us that means that our summer vacation plans are already fulfilled and we’ll soon be returning to school or the office or regular working hours.

For hockey players, however, those regular working hours have already begun and preseason practices are hitting new levels of intensity. Last week, when we visited Tyler Seguin in Toronto, the forward was already skating (nearly) everyday and was mixing in a wide array of off-ice work from stretching, to plyometrics to pilates.

Plenty of Experience Fuels Peverley

GUELPH, Ontario — Given what he’s achieved, Rich Peverley could be excused if he were satisfied.

But even as the Ontario-native showed us around his beautiful new home in Guelph, he pointed out that in his experience — and there’s been plenty of experiences for Rich in the NCAA, ECHL, AHL and NHL — nothing feeds dreams like achieving them.

Krug's Clear Intentions

STAMFORD, CT — Today Torey Krug took time out of his formidable training schedule to take BostonBruins.com around his offseason home base of Stamford, Connecticut.

But even as “Freddy” (think Krug-er) escorted bostonbruinsTV’s camera in and around his favorite spots in Southern Connecticut, the young defenseman obviously had his mind on his afternoon workout.

Each move we made in Connecticut was based solely on his regimen - lunch at the (very) healthy buffet at the local supermarket, a very quick stop in downtown Stamford (so he didn’t get to far afield of his gym) and a short sightseeing stop in Rowayton.

While Tyler Seguin was signing autographs for fans at the Lowell Spinners game on August 15th, VP of Facilities Dan Beaulieu used his reflexes to save the forward from getting hit in the head by a foul ball… and smashed his phone in the process. Needless to say, Tyler was grateful!

Speed Dating With Seguin

LOWELL, MA — As exciting as his young NHL career has been, there must be times when even Tyler Seguin has to find himself at least a little surprised at where his hockey journey finds him.

"Speed Dating Night With Tyler Seguin" certainly had that feeling as the 20-year-old forward drove down from his offseason home in Toronto to take part in the unique event hosted by the Lowell Spinners the Class-A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox.

Olympic Inspiration

BostonBruins.com — There are plenty of New Englanders currently competing (and winning!) at the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London, and there’s certainly a fair number of fans of the Black & Gold wearing Red, White & Blue.

However, the folks over at Harvard shot me a note about one member of Team USA who didn’t necessarily grow up a Bruins fan, but used the B’s run to the Stanley Cup as motivation (and a necessary distraction) as he worked to secure his spot in London for 2012.

Alex Meyer, who graduated from Harvard University in 2010, is a distance swimmer and while his sport might be seem completely disparate from hockey, the former Crimson said there’s a certain rough and tumble nature inherent in his event - the 10K Marathon Swim on set to take place in London on August 10.

Krug Preparing for 2012-13 in Connecticut

BOSTON, MA — B’s defenseman Torey Krug, who hails from Michigan, but who is in New England this summer, was in town early this week to take in a baseball game at Fenway Park.

"I drove down from Connecticut where I’m training to see the Red Sox and Tigers play," said Krug of his trek to the Fens. "First and foremost, I’ve never been to Fenway and I want to see the history behind the building and the Boston Red Sox are just another winning organization in the city of Boston."
