This week, we lost an important member of the Boston Bruins Alumni family -- Mal Viola -- who passed away after a courageous battle with cancer.
Mal worked with the Bruins and the Alumni for 33 years, most of them along side "The Chief" Johnny Bucyk as he built the Alumni program.
Later, Mal worked closely with past Alumni president Bob Sweeney and current Alumni president Rick Middleton during their tenures before retiring in 2014.
Mal is pictured here in this 2018 group photo along side Bobby Miller, who passed away in October.
Mal was the "go-to" person for the Alumni and her devotion and loyalty to the Bruins combined with her cheerful personality made her a friend to all.
RIP Mal. You will be missed.
