  • Before the Bruins face off with the Chicago Blackhawks at their season opener, former players will walk a red carpet at the Hub in Causeway during a “Rafters Reunion” ceremony tomorrow, Oct. 11. Bonus: Fans with tickets to opening night will take home an exclusive “Blood, Sweat & 100 Years” t-shirt.
  • Era Nights” at TD Garden throughout the 2023-2024 season will explore different periods of the Bruins’ history. The series kicks off Saturday, Oct. 28 to celebrate “The Early Years” — aka 1924-1959 — as the team takes on the Detroit Red Wings. Additional dates include Nov. 18, Dec. 16, Jan. 20, and March 7.
  • A permanent exhibit called Heritage Hall is currently under construction on the second level of TD Garden. Dedicated to the Bruins’ storied history, this all-ages exhibit will use exclusive artifacts and interactive games to immerse fans in the team’s traditions and career highlights. Heritage Hall is scheduled to open in January 2024.
  • A new photo opp is about to drop: a bear-shaped sculpture commemorating the team’s 1,000+ alumni — will be unveiled later in the season. Harry Weber, who created the Bobby Orr statue that stands at the front of TD Garden, is also the artist for this project.
