Bruins Trying to Keep Things Fresh During Layoff

Boston has one more practice before Saturday's opener against Dallas

by Eric Russo @erusso22 /

BOSTON - Bruce Cassidy knows his players have had just about enough of practicing.

Since wrapping up the exhibition slate last Wednesday, the Bruins have taken to the rink for five on-ice sessions at Warrior Ice Arena as they trudge through a 10-day layoff ahead of Saturday's season opener against the Dallas Stars.

It is hardly an ideal situation, but one the Black & Gold have tried to navigate with a balance of rest and hard work.

by Eric Russo @erusso22 /

BOSTON - Charlie Coyle is all in on a little friendly competition.

Carlo: 'I Want to Have a Shooter's Mentality This Season'

Blue liner ripped home a blast from the circle in Bruins' preseason win over Flyers

by Eric Russo @erusso22 /

BOSTON - Brandon Carlo was nothing but honest as he recalled his preseason tally against the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday night.

The blue liner ripped home a blast from the right-wing circle that zipped past Flyers goalie Martin Jones, giving Boston a 3-1 first-period lead in the exhibition contest.

It was a rocket, but not one he was necessarily trying to pinpoint.

"Just shot it towards the net. I'd be lying if I said I was aiming it," Carlo said with a sly smile following Friday's training camp session at Warrior Ice Arena.

Coyle Takes Another Step in Recovery from Offseason Surgery

Centerman shed non-contact jersey for Monday's training camp session

by Eric Russo @erusso22 /

BOSTON - Charlie Coyle took a significant step in his recovery from offseason knee surgery on Monday when he shed his non-contact jersey and joined his teammates for a full practice session as the second week of Bruins training camp commenced at Warrior Ice Arena.

"I don't like that jersey," said Coyle. "You never want to be the guy out there that no one knows how to play you - it's just awkward. You want to be like everyone else and be on the same level as everyone else and just play hockey, put everything behind you and just play, be with the guys, and get better.

"I was happy about it. It's good mentally, too, to just get out there and do things 100 percent and be out there with everybody."

DeBrusk is Set on Moving Forward

Winger say he's operating with a clean slate as he aims for bounce back season

by Eric Russo @erusso22 /

BOSTON - The first four seasons of Jake DeBrusk's NHL career are now wiped from his memory. Whether it was his 27-goal campaign in 2018-19 or his 14-point output last season, the winger - who is entering his fifth season with the Bruins - is not looking back.

"I pretty much forgot my whole career," DeBrusk said following Saturday's training camp session. "I'm clean-slating it. I think it's a pivotal point in my career as well, so just trying to do the little things every day, take it day by day, and not look too far in advance or at anything in the past."

2021 Boston Bruins Training Camp is presented by Plymouth Rock Assurance.

BOSTON - Erik Haula is looking for a little stability.

The 30-year-old has played for four teams over the past three seasons after putting up a career year with the Vegas Golden Knights during their magical inaugural campaign.

Some four years later, the Finland native hopes he can put down some roots in Boston after signing a two-year deal with the Bruins in July.

"That's always been the goal, settling in," said Haula. "I've been bouncing around a little bit - whatever the reason has been…it's been different reasons. I'm here as a Boston Bruin and I'm here to stay."
