Boston Bruins fans can cheer on former Boston Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara during the Oct. 22 game against the Minnesota Wild at TD Garden. < /p>
Indeed, the Massachusetts organization indicated on Tuesday that the ex-number 33 will be the guest of honor at the ceremonial face-off preceding the confrontation.
The Slovak announced his retirement last week, ending a 24-season career in the National Hockey League. He played 14 years in Boston and lifted the Stanley Cup in the spring of 2011.
The 45-year-old had 481 points, including 148 goals, in 1,023 games with the Bruins.
At this time, the club has not disclosed any plans regarding the possible retirement of Chara's jersey. However, President Cam Neely had already admitted that the whole thing will materialize at a time to be determined.
