The Bruins' Zdeno Chara will be featured partially nude in ESPN The Magazine's "The Body Issue," which will feature over 30 male and female athletes in various states of undress.
No, this is not a joke.
The issue will hit the newsstands on Oct. 9 and will also feature Edmonton's Sheldon Souray, Ethan Moreau and Andrew Cogliano; Pittsburgh's Bill Guerin; the Rangers' Chris Higgins; Calgary's Eric Nystrom; Toronto's Mike Komisarek; NASCAR driver Carl Edwards; and a collection of MLS stars.
Bruins sources told Yahoo Sports that Chara took photos partially clothed and not clothed at all. Matt Chmura, the Bruins' director of communications, said the team does not know which photos have been chosen.
You've been warned.
