When you think about what retired hockey players do on a random Tuesday in June what do you think about? Well lets see, what is close to hockey minus the cold and skates? Golf sounds perfect. And what happens when more than 30 Bruins Alumni get together on a beautiful day at a beautiful course? Well let's just say, there were lots of laughs, conversations and memories made across the board for all of the alumni that attended.
On Tuesday June 22, 2022 the Boston Bruins Alumni Association held a very special outing for the Bruins Alumni players. Located at the Sacconnesset Golf Club in Falmouth, MA, the Bruins Alumni Association hosted the Alumni Golf Day and it was a very successful day catching up with all of our alumni. Throughout the day we had the “voice” of the Bruins Alumni, John Horrigan, interviewing all of the Alumni for a future presentation of Boston Bruins Alumni TV!
The golf outing featured most of the participating Bruins Alumni team members and staff, along with first-time participants like Tukka Rask, Chris Wagner and Bruce Cassidy.

Every November, players on the MDSC All Stars team, many of whom have a loved one with Down syndrome, sharpen their skates to face-off against the Bruins greats of yesteryear. For sixteen years, the MDSC and the Boston Bruins Alumni have joined forces to support people with Down syndrome and their families. The steadfast support has raised significant funds to benefit MDSC's programs and services and has helped the general public understand that people with Down syndrome should not be defined by their diagnosis.
This year, the Boston Bruins Alumni have completely re-imagined the charity hockey program during COVID-9, so that our skaters can safely enjoy hockey while raising funds to support the important work of the MDSC. Now more than ever, the MDSC needs support to continue to be able to provide programs and services for individuals with Down syndrome and their families.
