Yesterday, I wondered when we would hear about Bruins players taking to the ice again. Today, we have an answer from one player.

Yep, Brad Marchand is taking off some time from selling his $20 hats (Gregory Campbell’s snark, not mine) to get back to working his day job, being a hockey player for the Boston Bruins. I bet he’s excited to get back with the guys since he seems to be missing them so much. Well, at least Bergy he misses.
Speaking of the side gig, Kevan Miller is reportedly the Boston PHWA Chapter’s nominee for the Masterton Trophy.

It’s a curious pick since Kevan Miller has been battling recurring patellar injuries since April 2019, making it back so far as skating on his own before sustaining another setback. If I had to select another player, I might be tempted to select Zdeno Chara since he played through the broken jaw, even after infection had set in, requiring another surgical procedure while still playing first pairing minutes.

It’s a nice idea but something tells me that Oskar Lindblom will likely win for reasons.
