Bruins’ Zdeno Chara Welcomes Charlie McAvoy Back In Adorable Instagram


September 15, 2019

Charlie McAvoy is back with the Boston Bruins for at least three more years, and Zdeno Chara is quite happy about it.

The 42-year-old defenseman was paired with the 21-year-old on the blueline for most of the 2018-19 season. McAvoy was a restricted free agent and signed a three-year deal with the Black and Gold on Sunday morning before reporting to training camp.

Of course, this made Bruins fans excited for the return of the young D-man. But no one was happier than Chara, who took to Instagram to post an adorable video of the duo Sunday. It starts with McAvoy grabbing a stick and begins to walk by Chara, who seems to be playfully ignoring his linemate.

McAvoy then grabs the jersey of Chara and the two embrace in a hug as they continue their walk to the ice.

“…….walk this way, walk this way …………
just give me a hug ……
welcome back @cmcavoy25,” Chara captioned the video.
