The Boston Bruins proved quarantining is no reason to forget your teammate's birthday.

Zdeno Chara turned 43 on Wednesday, and his fellow Bruins defensemen sent him well-wishes and gift suggestions in a video posted to Twitter.

Torey Krug suggested an exercise machine, and Brandon Carlo offered to give Chara an autographed jersey for his big day. Kevan Miller, Connor Clifton, Jeremy Lauzon and Charlie McAvoy also wished him a happy birthday while suggesting exercise equipment.

John Moore topped them all sharing a greeting while doing pushups and accompanied by his adorable daughters Millie and Lucy.

We hope Chara has a happy birthday, and echo his teammate's sentiments when we say we can't wait to see him back on the ice again.
