Chara Feeling Grateful for Opportunity to Return to the Ice

With the world in the midst of crisis, B's captain putting hockey into perspective

by Eric Russo @erusso22 / BostonBruins.com

BostonBruins.com - During this time of unprecedented crisis, Zdeno Chara is feeling fortunate. While the 43-year-old's hockey career has been put on hold because of the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a silver lining to his nearly three-month stretch at home.

Some quality family time with wife Tatiana, daughter Elliz, and twin sons Zach and Ben has been a much-needed reprieve for the Bruins captain and has helped him maintain perspective following the NHL's Return-to-Play format announcement on Tuesday afternoon.

"We have to be grateful for the opportunity that we're getting when you look at the real-life perspective, what other people's families, businesses are going through," Chara said during a media conference call on Thursday morning. "We're getting the opportunity to almost start where we ended the season. Not everybody is getting the same chance.

"A lot of people lost a lot of financial support; businesses went down and they will never get the same opportunity. We have to be grateful for the opportunity and take it as a huge motivation and excitement and embrace it."

With all of that in mind, they made the most of the showdown of - at that point of the season - the top two teams in the National Hockey League. Boston surged to a four-goal lead with a stellar opening period en route to a 7-4 victory on Dec. 23.

Frederic Stepped Up in Year 2 with P-Bruins

Young center finding right way to blend his unique mix of physicality, skill

by Eric Russo @erusso22 / BostonBruins.com

BostonBruins.com - As captain of the Providence Bruins, Paul Carey has come to learn what it takes to be a strong and effective leader. It's for that reason that his praise this week of teammate Trent Frederic was so notable.

Carey did not hesitate when asked which members of the P-Bruins' young core impressed him most during the 2019-20 season when it came to developing leadership abilities, immediately singling out Frederic for his progress throughout his second full professional campaign.

"Trent Frederic is a guy that jumps out at me," said Carey. "He not only can produce and score goals and make plays, he's also a guy that will stick up for his teammates and lead by example in that way. It's not very often that you get a guy with his size and his skill that can produce over half a point a game and also lead the league in penalty minutes.

"Guys really respect him in the room and he's a natural leader. He's a good teammate and he's a guy that really stepped up this year and helped us come together as a group and be more successful."
