For twelve years, Bruins players have carried on a tradition in Boston at Thanksgiving: delivering food to the various non-profits that feed the hungry and often homeless in the Boston area. This year was no different with Zdeno Chara continuing this custom for his third year by bringing pies to Rosie’s Place, New England Center and Home for Veterans, St. Francis House, and Pine Street Inn.

Aaron Ward started this program when he brought turkeys to area shelters. Dennis Wideman started bringing pies in 2009. Gregory Campbell continued from 2010-2014. Matt Beleskey took over from 2015-2017. Chara started in 2018 through today.
Chara didn’t have to do this. While he is still living in the area, Chara isn’t technically on the team. Sure, he would probably do this out of the goodness of his heart, he didn’t need the cameras to follow him or publicize this for the team.
I guess we could look at this as a sign that he’s probably coming back, eventually.
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving in America, as opposed to the Canadian version that is held on the second Monday of October, and we’re taking the day off. That turkey won’t cook or eat itself. So, have a lovely day ad if anyone wants to Zoom that day, I’m open to it.
