BOSTON - Bruins forwards Charlie Coyle and Chris Wagner joined Boston Police Commissioner William Gross in an outdoor, socially distanced event to celebrate Halloween with kids in the Roxbury community on Monday afternoon. Members of the Boston Police Hockey Team also participated in the Halloween celebration with the Boys & Girls Club of Boston's Orchard Gardens branch.
The event included pumpkin decorating, with pumpkins donated by Lambert's Fruit Center, Halloween music, and games, including street hockey with newly donated Bruins-themed Franklin equipment from the Boston Bruins Foundation and BFit program.
"It was awesome," said Wagner. "Obviously the Boys & Girls Club is a great place for these kids to come and hang out, paint pumpkins, shoot pucks…it's awesome to be with the kids and hopefully make an impact in the community."
"You've got to make the most of every situation," added Coyle. "Here we are having great time with the kids and running around playing games. Halloween theme with painting pumpkins, a little hockey, a lot of different activities. But still being safe and taking precautions but having a good time. It's been really fun for us to be part of it."
