Bruins fans love a local kid just as much as the next team, and Sweeney was one of them. Concordborn and Boxborough raised, Sweeney spent four years at Boston College before debuting with the Bruins in the 1986-87 season. In his first full season with the Bruins, the team made it all the way to the Stanley Cup Finals, where they were beaten by Wayne Gretzky and the Edmonton Oilers.

Sweeney would end up playing for the Bruins for six years before moving around the league. He ended up playing for the Buffalo Sabres, the New York Islanders, and the Calgary Flames before retiring in the 1995-96 season.
