The Bruins calendar is called "Pucks and Pups." Boston defenseman Charlie McAvoy and forward David Pastrnak each got involved in the shoot, with McAvoy first offering a helping hand to one of the bulldog's on site.

Pastrnak then got up close and personal with a very good golden retriever, who Pastrnak hoped would shape up the Bruins locker room.

The shoot for the Caps Canine Calendar featured Washington's players in dapper attire with their favorite dogs.
