Bruins bringing NHL hockey to Belfast
The Boston Bruins will bring NHL hockey to Northern Ireland when they face off against the Belfast Giants Select as part of the 2010 Compuware NHL Premiere Challenge.
The Boston Bruins are slated to play an exhibition game at the Odyssey Arena in Belfast, Northern Ireland on Oct. 2 at 7 p.m. local time as part of the 2010 Compuware NHL Premiere Challenge. 

The Bruins will play the Belfast Giants Select, a unified team comprised of an All-Star selection of the best of the UK Elite League players from each team. Ticket sales and broadcast information for this game will be released at a later date.  

The Bruins will officially open their 2010-11 NHL regular season by playing the Phoenix Coyotes in two games at Prague's O2 Arena on Saturday, Oct. 9 and Sunday, Oct. 10.

The Bruins return to Europe for the first time in 50 years. After the 1958-59 season, the Bruins and New York Rangers embarked on a 10-city, 23-game European tour that included games in London, Geneva, Paris, Antwerp, Zurich, Berlin and Vienna, among others.

The Bruins' roster includes Czech players David Krejci, who represented the Czech Republic in the Olympics, and Vladimir Sobotka. Also, team captain Zdeno Chara hails from Slovakia.


Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
