The sports world lost a legend Wednesday when former Boston Bruins great Milt Schmidt died at the age of 98.
“Milt’s impact in Boston, as both a player and a coach, will forever be felt amongst hockey fans,” Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs said of the Hockey Hall of Famer in a statement, as aired on “NESN Sports Today,” presented by People’s United Bank. “He was a legendary personality in the Bruins organization and goes down in history as the ultimate Bruin. We should all be envious of the longevity and meaningfulness of his life.”
