The Boston Bruins on Thursday revealed how they will pay tribute to Colby Cave upon the restart of the 2019-20 NHL season.
Each player will sport a helmet decal to honor Cave, who in April died at 25 years old after a brain bleed.
Cave played in 23 games over parts of two seasons with the Bruins before landing with the Edmonton Oilers midway through the 2018-19 campaign. The Saskatchewan native appeared in 44 games for the Oilers, including 11 this season.
Here are the helmet decals:

Boston officially will resume its season at 3 p.m. ET, on Sunday with a round-robin game against the Philadelphia Flyers.
