Tom Glavine Shows Off Hockey Skills With Cam Neely, Bruins (NESN Vault)

Once upon a time, former Atlanta Braves pitcher Tom Glavine was drafted into the NHL. The Billerica, Mass., native was selected 69th overall by the Los Angeles Kings in the 1984 NHL entry draft, but he ultimately chose another career path after he was selected in the second round of that year’s Major League Baseball draft.

Glavine made his major league debut with the Braves on Aug. 17, 1987, but the 2014 Hall of Fame inductee took some time out in 1992 to step onto the ice at Boston Garden and skate with the Boston Bruins.

The B’s take on the Kings at TD Garden on Monday afternoon, so we’ve pulled video out of the NESN Vault of the two-time Cy Young award winner’s visit with the Bruins. Check it out above.
