BOSTON, MA - The Boston Bruins announced today, January 14, that fans will have the opportunity to purchase a commemorative jersey patch to honor Milt Schmidt, featuring Schmidt's number 15. The jersey patch will be sold at the ProShop powered by Reebok on Level 2 of TD Garden as well as BostonProShop.com, starting today. The patch will sell for $15 dollars, with net proceeds benefitting the Jimmy Fund.
Fans can have the patch added to their jersey for free at the ProShop or iron it on at home.
The commemorative patch is currently worn all Bruins home, alternate, and away jerseys. The patch debuted on the team jersey on January 5 following the news of Schmidt's passing on January 4.
Schmidt, who was elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1961, is the only person in Bruins history to have served the club as a player, captain, coach and general manager. He won more Stanley Cup Championships with Boston than any other person, capturing two as a player in 1939 and 1941 and two more as the club's general manager in 1970 and 1972. Schmidt was a four-time All-Star, won the Hart Trophy as the league's Most Valuable Player in 1951 and the Ross Trophy as the NHL's scoring champion in 1940.
The Jimmy Fund solely supports the fight against cancer at Dana-Farber. Since its founding in 1948, the Jimmy Fund has raised millions of dollars through thousands of community efforts to help save lives and give hope to cancer patients around the world.
