by Staff Writer / Boston Bruins
BOSTON, MA - On Tuesday, December 21, beginning at approximately 1:15 p.m., the entire 2010 - 11 Boston Bruins team including Patrice Bergeron, Zdeno Chara, Nathan Horton, Milan Lucic, Marc Savard, and Tim Thomas will continue the Bruins annual toy delivery holiday tradition.

The players will be divided into seven groups, with each group visiting the following seven hospitals: Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center, Children’s Hospital Boston, Massachusetts General Hospital, Shriners Hospital for Children, Boston Medical Center, Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital and Franciscan Hospital for Children.

An estimated total of $22,500, donated by the Bruins players, coaches and the Boston Bruins Foundation, was used by the team to shop for toys on Monday, December 13. Members of the 2010-11 Boston Bruins roster personally donated to the initiative, and for every dollar the team raised the Boston Bruins Foundation matched. In addition, Volvo will provide transportation for the players to each hospital for the toy delivery.

Bruins Hall of Famer Ray Bourque started the player holiday toy shopping and delivery tradition when he was captain, while defenseman Hal Gill and forward P.J. Axelsson continued it. For the second consecutive year, Patrice Bergeron has taken responsibility for the program.
