BOSTON - For the fourth consecutive summer - and fifth time since 2016 - the Bruins will visit China with O.R.G. Packaging and its chairman, Mr. Zhou Yunjie, in an effort to continue growing the sport of hockey, strengthen the connection between the Bruins and the local Chinese community in New England, and educate North American residents about the growth of hockey in China.
"Bruins Global: China 2019" will take place from July 17-27 in Beijing and will feature youth hockey clinics conducted by current Providence Bruins players Anton Blidh and Wiley Sherman, along with Bruins alumni P.J. Stock and members of the Boston Bruins Corporate Partnership and Youth Hockey Development Teams.
The Bruins have been heavily involved in growing the game of hockey in China since partnering with O.R.G. Packaging in 2015, when the team became the first NHL franchise and first North American professional sports organization to partner with O.R.G. Packaging, which is based in Beijing.
Here is a look back at the team's previous trips to China:
