On Thursday, February 9, 2017, the Boston Bruins are teaming up with the American Heart Association (AHA) as Tufts Medical Center presents the Boston Bruins eleventh annual Heart Health Night during their home game against the San Jose Sharks at 7:00 PM.
Children and adults affected by heart disease will be invited in for the game and take part in various fan experiences throughout the evening. Guests of the Bruins will participate in activities such as bench assistant, high five lines, and rides on the ice resurfacer. All in-game fundraising, including the sale of mystery autograph pucks and the 50/50 raffle, will benefit the American Heart Association. Boston Bruins coaches, broadcasters and team personnel will be showing their support by wearing red heart health pins.
