Jake DeBrusk's Heartwarming Act in the Neighborhood

Published September 10, 2023 at 2:39 PM
Amidst changes in Boston, Jake DeBrusk, a Bruins forward, prepares for a more prominent role this season, drawing inspiration from former captain Patrice Bergeron.

Local resident Kris Noble shared a heartwarming story on X, highlighting DeBrusk's thoughtful act. He joined a neighborhood birthday party where kids were playing road hockey, bringing a signed, game-used stick and spending time with the young fans.

DeBrusk's transformation in Boston is evident. Despite initially seeking a trade, he signed a two-year, $7.35 million deal in November 2020 and enters the final season of his two-year, $8 million contract from March 2022. The upcoming season could see him become a free agent in 2023-24.

Fans hope DeBrusk replicates last season's impressive performance, setting a career-high with 50 points (27 goals, 23 assists) in just 64 games. With roster voids, especially due to Bergeron's retirement, the Bruins rely on DeBrusk to shine, and he's clearly drawing inspiration from Bergeron's exemplary attitude.
