The Boston Bruins are touring New England this summer, with a stop in Springfield on August 29.
Current Bruins players, coaches and executives will be on hand throughout the tour, along with NESN broadcasters Jack Edwards and Andy Brickley. They will be available to take photos, sign autographs, hold Q&A sessions with fans, among other activities.
In Springfield, the caravan will stop at Cyr Arena in Forest Park from 2-7 p.m. on Tuesday, August 29. Admission is free.
The tour's mission is to grow hockey in New England, and the team is prepared to provide new CCM hockey gear to kids between the ages of four and nine at each stop who have signed up for the Bruins Academy Learn to Play program. The Bruins estimate that they will outfit more than 4,000 youth hockey players. Registration for the program is open here.
Attendees are also welcome to participate in kid-friendly fitness activities, and NESN will provide virtual reality games.
