BOSTON — Bruins fans at TD Garden had something to cheer for prior to puck drop against the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday night when the club announced their 2023-2024 season awards.

John P. Bucyk Award:
Bruins goaltender Linus Ullmark received the award for his contributions to charity and community endeavors. The reigning Vezina Trophy winner connected with Special Olympics goalie Simon from Sweden by sending him a signed jersey, Bruins merchandise and a personalized video. In partnership with the Bruins Foundation, Ullmark created and raffled off custom goalie masks inspired by different eras of Bruins history and raised over $34,000 for charity. In addition to participating in the Bruins’ annual holiday story shopping and hospital visits, Ullmark brought pediatric patients to TD Garden to experience a home game and visited with them after the game.

Eddie Shore Award:
Forward Charlie Coyle received the honor of the “Legacy Season Ticket Holders” when they named him the Eddie Shore Award recipient for demonstrating exceptional hustle and determination throughout the season. The Weymouth native has appeared in each of the Bruins’ 78 games this season and has averaged more than 18 minutes of ice time, potting 25 goals and 33 assists.
