It’s always a big transition when you are traded in the middle of the NHL season, but for Chris Kelly, there was an additional element to his February trade — he was playing against his former team in his first game as a Boston Bruin.
Kelly sat down with NESN’s Naoko Funayama to discuss the transition, and said it was definitely strange walking into the visitor’s locker room, a place he had only been during training camp. However, Kelly said his new teammates on the Bruins definitely helped with his transition, and he’s enjoyed his time with the team so far.
Kelly is especially looking forward to the continued adjustment into the city of Boston, where he always has enjoyed exploring in the past.
