SCITUATE, Mass. --
Today was Bruins day at Haverly Elementary in Scituate, Mass. and Cameron Reardon clearly was the first star, especially when he and Bruins left winger Milan Lucic
made there way out of the school through lines of cheering students.

“It felt like a celebrity running away from the paparazzi,” Lucic said.
Cameron agreed, saying it was “cool.”
The cool factor was all part of a “Show and Tell” that Cameron and his family won through a Bruins Foundation auction. Lucic spoke to Cameron and 26 of his second grade classmates, and answered their questions.
“This is part of the Bruins Foundation, giving back and come here to see the kids and say hello and answer some questions,” Lucic told Channel 7 News at the event. “They went easy on me today and it was nice to see them all.”
After the Q&A, Lucic took the time to sign individual autograph cards for the students before he and Cameron made their way out of the building and into a limo waiting to take them to the Reardon home.
“You want to do what ever you can…to make them smile every time they see you, and I know it’s a big thing for them to go through something like this,” Lucic said. “So it’s fun to be on the other end and be a part of it.”
Once at home, Cameron challenged Lucic to a game of bubble hockey -- and won.
“It was fun,” Cameron said.
But was the Bruins current leading scorer any good at the table top hockey tournament?
Cameron, perhaps noting the presence of the noted Bruins brawler said, with a shy smirk, “Not really.”
Lucic, true to his off-ice form, just laughed.---Hannah Becker
