The Bruins season is about to start!

Bruins Logo
Can’t wait for the 2010-11 Bruins Season to start? Me neither!

Here’s a brief update of the offseason…
Cam Neely is now the President of the Bruins organization.
Peter Chiarelli is still the General Manager.
Claude Julien’s going into his 4th year as Head Coach.
Doug Jarvis was named a new Asst Coach alongside Doug Houda and Geoff Ward. Interesting fun fact about Doug Jarvis: as an NHL player, he holds the record for the most consecutive games played with 964 from October 8, 1975 to October 10, 1987.

Status of the team:
Marc Savard is suffering a recurrance of post-concussion syndrome and is not currently practicing with the team.
Tim Thomas and David Krejci are both playing again after offseason hip surgery.
Andrew Ference is back after 2 hernia surgeries.
Dennis Seidenberg had a tendon in his arm repaired and is currently in the line-up.
Marco Sturm is still recovering from knee surgery and is aiming for a mid-November return to the ice.
Milan Lucic seems up to speed after last season’s ankle issues and
“Big Z” Zdeno Chara declined to have his pinky finger surgically repaired deciding instead to let it heal.
Dennis Wideman was traded in return for Nathan Horton and Gregory Campbell.
The B’s had #2 & #25 draft picks and got Tyler Seguin and Jordan Caron.

The boys have a pre-season game coming up on 10/2 in Belfast Ireland against the Giants Selects on their way to the official season opener in Prague, Czech Republic. Belfast Giants Select is a unified team comprised of an All-Star selection of the best of the UK Elite League players from each team. The Bruins will play one exhibition game in Lieberec, Czech Republic on Tuesday, October 5 against HC Liberec at 7:00 p.m. local/ 1:00 p.m. ET.

The Bruins will open their 2010-11 regular season against the Phoenix Coyotes at the O2 Arena in Prague on Saturday, October 9 at 6:00 p.m. local/ 12 noon ET and will play the Coyotes again on Sunday, October 10 at the O2 Arena in Prague at 4:00 p.m. local/ 10:00 a.m. ET. They will return to Boston following Sunday’s game.

Fortunately, the guys will have 4 days off to recover from that crazy travel schedule before playing New Jersey on 10/16.

Other returning players…
Patrice Bergeron
Brad Marchand
Daniel Paille
Mark Recchi
Michael Ryder
Shawn Thornton
Blake Wheeler
Johnny Boychuk
Matt Hunwick
Mark Stuart
Trent Whitfield
Adam McQuaid
and
Tuukka Rask

There are a bunch of new guys still vying for a spot on the team. Click here for the complete roster to date.

New to hockey or need a refresher? I mean no disrespect when I recommend Hockey for Dummies as a great overview of rules and NHL records. This and other hockey books can be found in call number 796.96.

Here’s the 2010-11 Official NHL Rulebook.

So that’s it for a little Bruins update just in time for the season to start.

All together now:
