BHN Exclusive: McAvoy Deal ‘It Would Be Nice’ (BHN+)



Charlie McAvoy

Boston Bruins restricted free agent defenseman Charlie McAvoy joined an array of NHLers who grew up playing in Boston and the New England area Monday night for the annual Corey Griffin Foundation Happy Hour at Coppersmith Restaurant and Bar in South Boston. The event honors the beloved member of the local hockey scene and one of the founders and advocates of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

Griffin passed away in August 2014 and the event has become an All-Star show of support for the foundation.

“This is really something special,” McAvoy said. “Every guy who plays in the NHL from Massachusetts, and a lot of guys I play against and play with, they’re all here tonight to support the Corey Griffin Foundation. So, I think that’s pretty incredible.”

Boston Hockey Now was privileged to cover the event, but we also spoke with McAvoy about several topics, including is his contract status. Predictably, McAvoy couldn’t say too much publicly about the negotiations or lack thereof, but it was obvious he would like the process to be over.
