The Boston Bruins will feel a little lighter when they take the ice against the Anaheim Ducks next Thursday.
That’s because the squad will take part in the 8th annual “Cuts for a Cause” charity event Tuesday night at Boston Park Plaza Hotel. The event always has drawn its fair share of participants, but this year, Bruins alternate captain Patrice Bergeron got the entire squad on board for the first time ever.
That’s right: Even rookie David Pastrnak and veteran Loui Eriksson will be shaving off their beloved flowing locks.
The loss of hair, of course, is for a good cause, as the event will help raise money for the Boston Bruins Foundation and Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center.
The shaving begins at 4:30 p.m. and lasts until 6 p.m., and tickets can be purchased online at Bruins.com.
