BostonBruins.com - Three weeks ago, #BearTracks offered a glimpse into defenseman Kevan Miller's offseason training and his life growing up in Southern California.
Once again, BostonBruins.com is hitting the road to visit another Bruins blueliner. This time, it only requires a drive down the East Coast to New Jersey.
Next up: Dennis Seidenberg.
While the defenseman calls Germany home, he spends his summers training and relaxing with his family in New Jersey, where his wife is from. The #BearTracks crew will be checking in with him this coming Monday and Tuesday, August 18-19.
With training camp just over one month away, Seidenberg no doubt has his sights set on being ready to go for 2014-15, after recovering from the ACL/MCL tear in his right knee that he suffered in late December. It has now been seven and a half months since the injury.
Before he left Boston for the summer, he was focused on being 100 percent to start the season.
"I'll be better. I’m confident I’ll be hopefully better than before," Seidenberg had said.
The 32-year-old will enter his sixth season as a Bruin in 2014-15, after first being acquired from Florida in 2010. It marks his longest tenure with an NHL team. Last October, before the injury, he signed a four-year contract extension that keeps him in Black and Gold until the 2017-18 season.
Seidenberg has found a home with Boston, and was certainly missed by his teammates in the final half of the 2013-14 season and in the playoffs.
Stay tuned to BostonBruins.com, the Bruins Mobile App and on Twitter @NHLBruins, following along with the hashtag #BearTracks, as we catch up with 'Seids' before the season!
