Next up in the series of game day posters- Boston Bruins vs Carolina Hurricaines, featuring Milan Lucic on the front.
The Bruins gave away these nice Milt Schmidt lithographs to honor Uncle Milt on October 28, 2010. This was also the first night the “Thank You Kessel” chants began, as the Bruins shut out the Toronto Maple Leafs, 2 -0.

For the past 3 seasons, the Boston Bruins have been handing out a small poster sized gameday roster. The front features (typically) a player, and the back has rosters for both teams, and other information about the featured player, game notes, the upcoming schedule, etc. These posters look similar to the old fight posters promoting boxing matches. This is today’s example: Boston Bruins vs the Edmonton Oilers, featuring Tyler Seguin on the front. As a note, its notoriously hard to get one these home without too many wrinkles, tears, folds and such.
This is an image of a promotional giveaway ticket from the night Ray Bourque’s number was raised to the rafters in Boston. The Bruins honored Bourque, one of the Bruins most beloved hockey players, on October 4 2001 in front of a packed house before the Bruins played the Anaheim Ducks that evening.
I recently found a bunch of stuff from back in the day, including some stuff from my days as a contractor to some of the broadcast networks. Here’s a pic of some media passses from the Boston Bruins 1997 to 1998 season – the Bruins lost that year in the playoffs to the Washington Capitals.
The Boston Bruins marketing department has created parody posters of the Boston Bruins for the last two seasons. They are based on a player, and each spoofs a famous film.
Zedeno Chara – Iron Defenseman
Shawn Thornton and Milan Lucic – Bruise Brothers
