In Bruins news you can use:

  • One of the final lingering pieces of the Seguin trade is looking for another team- Joe Morrow wasn’t tendered an offer by the Bruins. Review the players embroiled in that now infamous trade. CBS Boston
  • Bruins prospect Jeremy Swayman is trading the cold of Anchorage, AK for the... well... cold of Orono, ME. Where might he fit among company such as Malcolm Subban, Zane McIntyre, and Daniel Vladar? The Hockey Writers
  • Six degrees of separation- Jack Studnika has connections to the Bruins through his coach back home. Hometown Life
  • Looking back at the Providence Bruins, veteran forwards were key to the team’s success. Noted “streakiness” may be what held the Bruins from making a qualifying offer to Colton Hargrove, in hindsight. Providence Bruins
  • The Class of 2017 is a very Boston one, including Mark Recchi and Dave Andreychuk (briefly a Bruin who left in the Ray Bourque trade) along with the Bruins’ owner. Boston Herald
  • Mark Recchi (and his three Stanley Cups) are IN- the fourth time was the charm. ESPN
  • Champagne toast- Recchi holds one very unique NHL milestone from the 2011 Stanley Cup Final he played with the Bruins. NHL
  • Oh, and 42 years of Bruins ownership landed Jeremy Jacobs in the Hall of Fame as well. Take a look at his long body of work, 42 years of notable (and notorious) machinations. South Coast Today
  • How fitting that Amalie Benjamin reported on the Jacobs news! NHL

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • Former Bruins in the news include Brett Connolly, who has re-signed with the Capitals. SBNation Somehow, Joe Thornton’s name just keeps coming up in trade rumors as being targeted by the Bruins. The Fourth Period
  • Paul Kariya and Teemu Selanne 4EVAH! How appropriate that the former Ducks teammates join the Hall of Fame together. Apparently Kariya dodged a real-life shark this week while surfing. TSN
  • The daily dose of schadenfreude includes the #1 team on Jeff Markek’s list of the even dozen NHL teams on the hot seat to improve over the summer. Sportsnet
  • Marc-Andre Fleury leaves Pittsburgh with grace and a load of warm memories. Bonus for a mention of former Bruin Max Talbot. The Players Tribune
  • Pete Blackburn was among a group released by Fox Sports. Can happy landings be far behind? @PeteBlackburn
