“I am extremely proud of Brad and the hockey player he has become,” Bruins CEO Charlie Jacobs said in a statement.
“Brad has been a Bruin for over 15 years and had the opportunity to learn from great leaders in Zdeno Chara and Patrice Bergeron.

“This week marks five years married, and ten years together. Over this time, you’ve put every bit of effort into being the best husband, and father one can be… while working relentlessly to always improve at the office. Every bit of the way making it look easy, and only wanting to make us proud in return.
