Ex-Bruin Shawn Thornton, Foundation Donate $50K To Jimmy Fund (Video)

Shawn Thornton won’t suit up for the Bruins this season, but Boston still is near and dear to his heart.

The former Bruins forward joined WEEI radio at the WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund Radio-Telethon on Wednesday, and unsurprisingly, he found another way to endear himself to the city. Thornton and his foundation gave a wonderful parting gift to Boston, donating $50,000 to the Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber.

Thornton, who’s now with the Florida Panthers, also talked some hockey with the guys, so check out more of his interview in the video above.
