And on the second day Loui Eriksson spoke to the assembled Bruins media.
After skating in his second Bruins captain’s practice at Ristuccia Arena the Swedish forward said many of the same things as he did in his introductory conference call after being traded from the Dallas Stars to Boston. He arrived in Boston on Saturday and was excited to be participating in the voluntary practices with fellow Swedish imports Niklas Svedberg and Carl Soderberg.
The influx of Swedish talent to the Black and Gold makes for an interesting departure for a Bruins organization that’s in a slight transition phase after waving goodbye to Tyler Seguin Rich Peverley Andrew Ference Nathan Horton and Anton Khudobin in the offseason.

With training camp just over a week away, and opening night only a month away, the Bruins are gearing up for the upcoming season, and some of them are getting a head start.
A good number of B’s were on hand at the captains’ practice at Ristuccia Arena in Wilmington, Mass., and while most of the faces were familiar ones, there were a few new members of the squad lacing up their...
Slowly but surely the Bruins are starting to show up for training camp and take part in captains’ practices, and with a little more than a week until training camp begins, the B’s have a growing practice roster.
Newly acquired Loui Eriksson made his first on-ice appearance in black and gold Monday as he joined a host of Bruins at Ristuccia Arena in Wilmington, Mass., for the...
Bobby Robins, by all accounts, is a good guy and a good teammate. That’s why he took some time after practice Thursday to teach one of his teammates how to fight.
OK, so that’s probably simplifying things just a tad, but it is the preseason, which means it’s time to work on every aspect of the game, including fighting for a tough guy like Robins. Following practice Thursday...
Boston Bruins forward #34 Carl Soderberg will likely have a bigger impact with big club this season
One of the biggest crutches for the Boston Bruins last season was the inconsistency of their third line. Chris Kelly went from scoring career highs in goals (20), points (39), and plus minus (+33) in 2012, but failed to come anywhere close to those numbers last season. Rich Peverley...
Bruins winger Milan Lucic has become a fan favorite since his arrival in 2007. “Looch” embodies what it means to be a Big, Bad Bruin. He plays with reckless abandon and will drop the gloves with anyone. Many have compared him to Bruins legendary power forward Cam Neely.
So let’s take a photo journey with Milan Lucic from his childhood to Black & Gold bruiser.
The last time we saw Gregory Campbell on the ice in the black and gold, the Bruins center was limping to the bench. He was doing so, of course, after blocking a slap shot from Evgeni Malkin during Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals and then finishing the shift on one leg.
The impressive showing of intestinal fortitude became some sort of rallying cry for the team and its fans...
from Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe,
The Bruins’ consistency (seven straight playoff appearances during Julien’s time) underscores that there are different team-building methods. Seidenberg, Campbell, Bartkowski, Kelly, Tuukka Rask, Loui Eriksson, Daniel Paille, Johnny Boychuk, and Adam McQuaid arrived in trades. They prove Chiarelli knows what he’s doing when making...
Stick tap to Daily Face-off, who has these cool little jerseys. Anyways, they put up potential line combinations for the Boston Bruins and while most are dead on, there were a few I didn't think were correct. I think that these are probably closer to what we will see in October.
The hockey drought has finally come to an end with the Bruins rookie camp kicking off on Wednesday.
The 22 roster hopefuls laced up their skates for the first time in the week-long camp, but one player who can now shed the rookie title stopped by Ristuccia Arena. Heading into his second year with the B’s, Dougie Hamilton said knowing everybody and knowing what to expect already...
Every hockey player dreams of driving the Zamboni but has any hockey fan ever dreamed of designing one? If you have, you’re in luck.
EchoStor, one of the Bruins’ Zamboni sponsors is asking fans to help design their ice maker for the 2013-14 season. Fans are asked to send design ideas in and the person with the best design will win two tickets to a Bruins game and a ride on the...
Since 24/7 has been such a huge hit among fans for the NHL Winter Classic, it's not surprising more shows like this would pop up. The Bruins/NESN and whoever Alex and Ani are, are presenting Behind the B which promises to give fans "an unprecidented access into the team's locker room, executive boardroom, and player's homes." Can't wait.
Never fear, hockey fans — The NHL season is just around the corner.
In a move that should signal the official end of summer, the ice crew over at TD Garden started preparations Wednesday for the 2013 Bruins season as they painted the team’s home ice with black and gold. Fans eager to wash the taste of last year’s Stanley Cup loss out of their mouths can start catching B’s...
Last year, UCLA’s alternate uniforms — a dark blue look that the Bruins sported against USC on Homecoming Weekend — was called “L.A. Nights.” This year’s model is “L.A. Midnight.” Designed for the Bruins’ November 15th game against Washington, it marks UCLA’s arrival on the all-black uniform bandwagon.
The pants and jersey are actually halfway decent. The stretch...
