Rich Peverley Was ‘Worried’ About Fitting In During Bruins’ 2010-11 Season

Rich Peverley was traded to the Bruins from the then-Atlanta Thrashers during Boston’s 2010-11 Stanley Cup season.

But the former center wasn’t exactly sure where he’d fit in with the group when he arrived.

“I”m not gonna lie, I was a little worried at the start,” Peverley told NESN Bruins analyst Andy Brickley. “I was worried where I was gonna fit in. I had played a top-six role in Atlanta and I went in to Boston, and I have to give it to them, they slotted me right into the third-line wing … I felt comfortable …”

Peverley ended up playing a solid role in the Bruins’ Stanley Cup Final and even got to lift Lord Stanley’s Cup after their Game 7 win over the Vancouver Canucks.
