It’s well-known around here that Andrew Ference is quite “green.” The Bruins defenseman is a strong advocate for environmental issues and a strong supporter of resource preservation.
With that in mind, our friends over at Stanley Cup Of Chowder pledged to plant 50 trees for every goal Ference (aka Captain Planet) scored this season. After seeing (and, we assume, highly enjoying) this news, Ference himself made his own pledge on Monday – he’ll match their deal, but with every goal Bruins forward Tyler Seguin scores instead.
Here’s the exchange in writing, via Twitter:
@cupofchowdah You guys are awesome! OK, I’ll match that offer but I’ve seen my career stats and will plant for @tylerseguin92 goals instead.

Pretty cool deal, until you realize that the fate of God’s green earth now lies in the hands of this guy:
We hope you know what you’re doing here, Captain Planet.
BEST OF MAXIM
