Hitting the Links: No (Golf) Game Edition

Wow that is a really tall Isles prospect.
Wow that is a really tall Isles prospect.

Patrice Bergeron said yesterday before golfing in the Bruins' annual 'Putts and Punches for Parkinsons' golf tournament that he'd only been out on the golf course once this summer. Um, let me cry tears for you, sir. That is what happens when you win Cups.

Some good stuff out of the rookies last night down on Long Island, as they beat the baby Islanders 8-5. It doesn't make me very excited for the goaltending situation in Providence, but hey what can you do. Sidenote - we'll be Open Threading the second rookie game here tonight, so definitely don't miss out on that.

After the jump - golf, rookies, and an OHL player who played for both teams in a home and home?
