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.

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.

Consistent But Not Complacent — The Bruins feel as if their core group is capable of another Stanley Cup run and on Tuesday, General Manager Peter Chiarelli spoke about Head Coach Claude Julien’s role in Boston’s success.

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."

Julien: Love the Organization, Love the City

To a room filled with members of the media, GM Peter Chiarelli professed that the Bruins had no hesitation in signing Coach Julien to the new contract and committing to keeping him behind the bench of a B’s squad that includes the nucleus of the 2011 Cup team.

Julien echoed this sentiment in his own opening statement to the press, making known his commitment to the Bruins and the Hub of Hockey.

“I’m extremely happy to remain here in Boston,” he said. “Love the organization, love the city.”

“When I first came here, my goal was to try and win a Stanley Cup here in Boston. We’ve accomplished that. Now my goal is to win another Cup for this Boston franchise.”

Home in Halifax

HALIFAX, Nova Scotia – Thanks to numerous preseason games in the Metro Centre, for those of us working on the Bruins travel party — and especially those of us who traveled hither and yon to cover the B’s Cup parties last summer — Halifax has become a veritable home away from home.

But for Brad Marchand, Halifax is home and the B’s forward intends to make Nova Scotia his offseason base for the foreseeable future.

“It’s nice,” said Marchand, as he drove through the city’s streets after a brutal day-starting workout. “I live outside of town so I can come in and do my training and then, for the most part, I’m with my family the rest of the days.”

Sweeney Stops by Summer Camp –On the fourth day of the Boston Bruins and Pro Ambitions Hockey, Inc. Summer Camp presented by Stonyfield Farms the youth hockey players got another visit from another Bruin as Assistant General Manager Don Sweeney was in attendance to sign autographs, answer questions and help lead the on ice instruction.

"Obviously just having an opportunity to meet the kids is important," Sweeney said from the Jim Roche Community Ice Arena in West Roxbury. "I think the camp is a phenomenal way to give back a little bit and for the Bruins Foundation organization to be involved."

The Dougie Days of Summer

WILMINGTON, MA – Last year’s ninth overall draft pick, Dougie Hamilton, has been hard at work here at the 2012 Development Camp.

Unlike many top-ten draft picks, Hamilton wasn’t selected by a team planning to build around him – instead he was drafted by a team that was currently the Stanley Cup Champions.

P-Bruins Will Be Better

WILMINGTON, MA – Under first-year head coach Bruce “Butch” Cassidy, the AHL’s Providence Bruins ended the season with a 35-34-3-4 record good for 77 points and fourth place in the Atlantic Division, but not good enough to make the Calder Cup Playoffs – a berth the P-Bruins haven’t achieved since 2009.

B's Prospects Hit the Books

Tewksbury, MA - After another double session day on the ice, the boys of the sixth annual Boston Bruins development camp took to Greater Boston to get to know the members of the community.

At the Tewksbury Public Library, 10 prospects played outdoor games, made dream catchers in arts and crafts, and read books to children who are members of the library’s “Summer Reading Program.” Among the group were Matt Benning, Colin Campbell, Chris Casto, Brian Ferlin, Zane Gothberg, Matt Grzelcyk, Colton Hargrove, Adam Morrison, Ben Sexton and Malcolm Subban.
