Morning Free Association: New Bruins Ownership!

It’s not April Fools Day. It’s true, the Bruins have new owners. In a story that only showed up in the Boston Globe, Jeremy Jacobs revealed that the change in ownership happened earlier this year. Rest assured, the new owners are related to the old one.

“I have given it to my kids,” said Jacobs. “They are paying me some of the proceeds that come out of this. It happened this year. This was done on the basis that the longevity is going to continue in the hands of the Jacobs children, and the next generation will have it.

“Hopefully, it will continue to be a successful franchise.”

Jeremy Jacobs has transferred ownership of the Bruins and Delaware North, his massive concessions company that owns the Bruins, to his six children: Jerry Jr, Lou, Charlie, Lynn, Katie, and Lisann.

Charlie has served as CEO of Delaware North Boston Holdings since 2015 and alternate governor of the Bruins since 2002. It is uncertain what roles his siblings will adopt but there are many facets to it.

“I see this and they see this as very much a part of the family persona — and this business’s persona,” said Jacobs, who was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame, builders category, in 2017. “We think, as we wander away from sports — something we haven’t done totally, but we are doing a number of things that take us away from sports — this will continue the heritage that began there.”

Morning all. Great time seeing everyone this weekend! I’ll bring the flatulence pancakes next time! Phony and I had a Game 7 therapy session on the way home. I think we came to the conclusion that it will always hurt.

Boatercross sounds both fun and painful.
