Surprise at Bruins Practice

Published March 7, 2024 at 12:53

At a recent Boston Bruins practice, two very well known players showed up to show support for the team they made history on. Ex Bruins players Zdeno Chara and Andrew Ference attended the practice in a wholesome show of camaraderie.

"Just two friends watching practice."

Zdeno Chara goes down as a legend of the Bruins. With 1680 games played in the league he has a total of 209 goals and 471 assists, landing Chara with 680 career points. Originally drafted by the New York Islanders back in 1996, Chara was drafted in the third round. Chara has both the Norris Trophy as best defenseman in the NHL (2009) and the Stanley Cup (2011) under his belt. As a three time NHL first-team all-star, he goes on record for the hardest shot in the all-star skills competition at a whopping speed of 108.8 mph back in 2012. Chara made his debut with the Boston Bruins in 2006 with a five year initial contract, becoming captain almost immediately.

Andrew Ference is a well decorated Bruins Veteran aswell, as he won the Stanley Cup alongside Defenseman Zdeno Chara in 2011. Although he has done much for the team, one of his most memorable performances was his middle-finger celebration directed towards habs fans during the same year of his Stanley Cup victory. This was the talk of the town for a while, but Ference remains to be talked about for more than just this celebration. With 907 games played, Ference accumulated 43 goals and 182 assists for 225 points. His last season with the Bruins was 2012-2013 before heading to the Oilers and being named team captain.
