This year's Bruins Academy Mini 1-on-1, powered by TD Bank, will take place on Sunday, Jan. 14 at TD Garden.

BostonBruins.com - Oliver Wahlstrom knew he wanted to make his mark.

Day after day, the Maine native - just nine years old - took the ice at his home rink with a stick and a puck to, as he called it, "mess around." There was no specific drill, no pre-meditated plans, just the love of the game and an endless bounty of creativity and imagination.

Photo Gallery: Bruins Deliver Toys to Local Hospitals

Players spread some holiday cheer during annual event

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - Just two weeks after shopping for the toys, the Bruins set out around the city to deliver them - and a little holiday cheer - to over 600 children at local hospitals on Monday afternoon.

The entire B's roster came together for the initiative which was started by legendary defenseman Ray Bourque during his playing days and has been spearheaded by Patrice Bergeron in recent years. For rookie Danton Heinen, it was his first opportunity to take part in the holiday tradition.

"You walk in there and their faces light up, it's pretty cool to see," said Heinen. "They're going through some tough times, but if we can come and take their minds off it for just a second we have fun doing it. You even see the parents and how happy and appreciative they are, it's not only them, we get a lot out of it too. The kids are fighting and they're an inspiration."

Check out some of the day's best photos:
