Former Boston Bruin Adam Oates enjoyed 19 seasons in the National Hockey League and was a scoring machine for seven different teams during his career.
After playing in 1,337 games, scoring 341 goals and assisting on another 1,079, Oates will be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2012. Oates’ highlight-filled 2012 doesn’t end there. The five-time All-Star was named the Washington Capitals head coach earlier this year.
Oates played almost six full seasons in a Bruins uniform and enjoyed playing with Cam Neely and Ray Bourque. To hear his reflections on his success in Boston, check out the video above.

Well, apparently McKayla Maroney is a Bruins fans. But she’s still not impressed. The Team USA gymnast is continuing her tradition of being “not impressed” — a look that took off after she was disheartened by finishing second in her signature event in this summer’s London Olympics — and this time, she’s showing her feelings in the hockey world. While a quick poke around...
On Monday Adam Oates capped a wonderful career by being inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto.
During his acceptance speech Oates continued to do exactly what he did best during his career: flip the glory unto others. Just like a perfect pass for yet another assist, Oates spent much of his speech thanking teammates, singling out Cam Neely and Ray Borque from his time in...

Unemployment makes people do some crazy things. Latest case in point? Milan Lucic’s starring in this god awful commercial for New England area bank NMTW. What do you get when you combine a Bruins enforcer with lackluster acting abilities with video production skills on par with a sixth grade science project? Possibly the worst commercial you’ve ever seen!

With the NHL locked out, Boston Bruins star Tyler Seguin signed with EHC Biel in the Swiss National League and so far the signing has paid dividends. In just fifteen games with his new club, Seguin has recorded thirteen goals and ten assists, but his numbers truly exploded when Chicago Blackhawks star Patrick Kane joined [...]
Coming off a breakthrough 2010 postseason, big things were expected from Nathan Horton, but after suffering his second concussion in the span of seven months, Horton only played 46 games and missed the playoff series against the Washington Capitals. Now it seems as if Horton has recovered and is raring to go. Horton’ agent Paul [...]
Bruins fans received some good news over the weekend, as Nathan Horton‘s agent revealed that the Boston forward will be “ready to go” whenever the NHL starts back up. The news also welcomed a rather distasteful jab from a different agent, though.
Scott Norton, the agent for Flyers winger Tom Sestito, re-tweeted an ESPN.com story about Horton’s good health, and said to stay...
Gregory Campbell has nothing to do:
"I've talked to a number of guys around the league that I'm close with. Everybody says they're bored," Campbell told the Globe. "I try and look for things to do, things that I've always wanted to do, to pursue those things. But I'm a hockey player. I want to get back to playing."
Since he hasn'...
from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,
It is no surprise at all, but Jeremy Jacobs, the militant Boston owner who acts as chairman of the Board of Governors, is in full support of a plan that would benefit his pockets at the expense of his team.
This, after all, is the individual whose miserly ways finally drove Raymond Bourque out of Boston in search of a Stanley Cup.

Mats Sundin, Joe Sakic, Pavel Bure and Adam Oates are being inducted in the player category.
