The NHL has put forth some strict rules this season when it comes to being vaccinated against COVID-19, and it appears the Boston Bruins aren’t messing around.
Don Sweeney spoke to reporters following the B’s loss to the New Jersey Devils on Sunday in the Prospects Challenge, and confirmed the entire staff — players and personnel– have been vaccinated, per The Boston Globe’s Matt Porter.
NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly noted last week that he was confident about 98% of the league’s players would be fully vaccinated before the 2021-22 season begins next month.
Bruins defenseman Connor Clifton contracted COVID-19 on his honeymoon earlier this month.
The Bruins begin their season Oct. 16 at TD Garden against the Dallas Stars.
