With the Bruins celebrating their centennial this season, they had a nice ceremony prior to last night’s home opener. Uni Watch reader Jeff Israel attended the game and sent in these observations:
To kick things off, they had several members of the 1970, 1972, and 2011 Stanley Cup championship teams honored on the ice. This was followed by honoring “living legends” and descendants of every Bruin whose number has been retired honored, both on the ice and in the stands (and, in Willie O’Ree’s case, remotely).
The uni-related element was that each person wore an era-approrpiate jersey with the Bruins’ centennial patch added. There were some fun inconsistencies — the 2011 Bruins, for example, wore a mix of Adidas and Reebok jerseys, even though the league was obviously wearing Reebok in 2011.
Video of the full ceremony is embedded at the top of this page. In addition, here are some photos:
Definitely a cool way to kick off the centennial season!
