For the last two games heading into Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Final, Jake DeBrusk has been wearing a Boston Bruins winter aviator hat. Following his team’s 5-2 Game 1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes, DeBrusk was sporting the same hat in his media scrum and one reporter suggested that the hat was called a “Tuukka”.
“A Tuukka?…ironic,” DeBrusk quipped.
DeBrusk assisted on Patrice Bergeron’s game-winner 2:54 into the third period and has helpers in three straight games now, so chances are he will be wearing it until he goes pointless again.
“I put this on two games ago and the guys were laughing,” he said. “So with that and we’ve been rolling, I’m going to keep wearing it.”
