Redford is not the only political leader in Alberta who cheers for the Bruins.
Liberal Leader Raj Sherman says that although he grew up in B.C., he pulled for the Bruins rather than the Vancouver Canucks.
NDP Leader Brian Mason says he is a Habs fans, and has vivid childhood memories of sitting in smoke-filled living rooms watching his Montreal Canadiens thrash the Chicago Blackhawks.
Wildrose Opposition Leader Danielle Smith says she grew up an Edmonton Oilers fan, but now that she represents a southern riding, she is also a fan of the Okotoks Oilers of the Alberta Junior Hockey League.
Yeah, it was a pretty special moment for me. Today was my Dad's [55th] birthday. I have a lot of family in town, so it was a special moment for me to score my first one today. A win definitely would have capped it off, but you can't have everything.
— Sabres rookie Jack Eichel after scoring a goal in his National Hockey League debut
