Ray Bourque headlines Boston Bruins alumni roster for Chilliwack visit

The Bruins take on the Chilly Wackers to raise funds for Chilliwack Services for Community Living.

The roster is starting to take shape for the Boston Bruins alumni, who are coming to Chilliwack’s Prospera Centre Feb. 23.

The Bruins take on the Chilly Wackers, a local group of players coming together to raise money for the Chilliwack Society for Community Living.

Headlining the Bruins alums is Stanley Cup champion and Hall of Famer Ray Bourque, who logged 1,826 regular season and playoff games in the National Hockey League, playing for the Bruins and Colorado Avalanche. Nineteen times a first or second team all-star and a five time Norris Trophy winner as the league’s top defenceman, Bourque has more goals (410) and points (1,579) than any blueliner in NHL history.

Nifty Rick Middleton joins him on the Bruins alumni. A former Boston captain, Middleton collected 493 goals and 1,088 points in a 1,119 game NHL career, making him one of the highest scoring right wingers ever. Middleton was part of one two of the greatest hockey teams ever assembled, playing for Canada in the 1981 Canada Cup (winning silver) and the 1984 Canada Cup (winning gold).

One of the greatest American players ever is coming to town with the Bruins.

Joe Mullen was the first United States-born player to reach 500 goals and 1,000 points and won three Stanley Cup titles, two with the Pittsburgh Penguins and one with the Calgary Flames.

He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2000.

Other notable names announced so far include Al Iafrate, owner of one of the hardest slap shots in NHL lore, and Moe Lemay, who lives in Chilliwack and won a Stanley Cup with the 1987 Edmonton Oilers.

Tickets can be purchased online through this link.


The Bruins alumni will conduct a pre-game clinic for kids ages 6-12.

The $30 price includes participation in the clinic and ticket to the game. For more info, call the Chilliwack Society for Community Living at 604-792-7726.
