The History of The Hub of Hockey

Since November 1, 1924, the Boston Bruins have been at the epicenter of hockey in New England.

On that day, a young grocery store financier from Vermont, Charles Francis Adams, who had fallen in love with the game while watching the Stanley Cup playoffs, paid the National Hockey League a rumored $15,000 for the privilege of owning a team in the finest hockey league in the world and icing the first American based squad in the NHL.

After that seminal day, the Bruins have served as the beloved hometown hockey team for each New England town, hamlet, city and village.
