Boston Bruins: Players Dress As Despicable Me Characters

The Boston Bruins were up to something absolutely despicable on Wednesday.

Showing their Halloween spirit, a few members of the Boston Bruins visited the Boston Children’s Hospital dressed up as characters from the animated movie “Despicable Me”. Captain Zdeno Chara dressed as “Gru”, and David Krejci, Torey Krug, Jimmy Hayes, and Tuukka Rask all dressed up as Minions. The Bruins have made this dress-up trip to the hospital an annual tradition, having visited the hospital dressed as characters from the animated film “Frozen” just last year.

  • The Boston Bruins aren’t strangers to giving back to their community, participating in many charitable events such as their annual Cuts For A Cause event, an event in which Bruins players cut their hair and all proceeds are donated to Shawn Thornton‘s Foundation, The Boston Bruins Foundation and Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center. Additionally, the Bruins also give the jersey’s off their backs to fans following their last home game of the season every year. It’s the little things like this that cause Bruins fans to be so loyal to their team; even if the TD Garden looked rather bare on Tuesday during the Bruins 6-0 win over the Arizona Coyotes.

    The Bruins will certainly continue their charitable work for years and years to come, and it’s events like these that allow for fans to take a step back and appreciate what sports teams and athletes do for the less-fortunate, sick, and even just their loyal fan bases.

    The players clearly enjoyed themselves while at the hospital, and that level of amusement may have been heightened by the fact that the Bruins finally won their first home game of the season in emphatic fashion over the Coyotes. The Bruins will look to build on that win, as well as wins in four of their last five games, against the Florida Panthers on Friday when the Bruins travel to the Sunshine State. The Bruins are firing on all cylinders and scoring goals consistently, and their defense is seemingly improving. There is still a lot of work to be done on the Bruins back-end, and Tuukka Rask will need to build off of his shutout against the Coyotes, but the Bruins are currently sitting in a wildcard playoff spot; a pretty good improvement from their 0-3 record to start the season.
