The Boston Bruins have officially broken their silence on the murder of George Floyd and the recent protests around the world in the name of long overdue change and justice. The Bruins released their statement via social media shortly before noontime on Tuesday.

The Bruins organization and players have largely been silent regarding the murder of Floyd. The lone exception was captain Zdeno Chara, who posted a statement to his Instagram two days ago.

Chara is one of many players around the NHL that has spoken out in recent days. Former Bruins forward Tyler Seguin posted a statement to his Twitter account on Monday.

Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews also released a heartfelt statement on Monday via his Instagram.

Of course, all of this happened in Minnesota. Winnipeg Jets captain Blake Wheeler, a native of Minnesota, has been quite vocal throughout the last week.

Wheeler also posted an Instagram post on Tuesday. That came after he spoke to the media via Zoom earlier this morning.
