The Boston Bruins continue to see bodies trickle into their Warrior Ice Arena practice facility as Phase 2 of the NHL’s ‘Return To Play’ plan continues. On Monday, Patrice Bergeron was joined by linemate Brad Marchand, forward Sean Kuraly and defensemen Torey Krug and Matt Grzelcyk. Only six players at a time can workout together during Phase 2.
The group is growing.

Today’s group of Bruins is not the only one skating at Warrior Ice Arena. On Sunday, captain Zdeno Chara took to the ice along with John Moore and Par Lindholm. They officially became the second group of Bruins to take to the ice in Massachusetts.
In a Zoom call with the media on Friday, Boston Bruins General Manager Don Sweeney told reporters that Anton Blidh (Sweden), Joakim Nordstrom (Sweden), David Pastrnak (Czech Republic), Jakub Zboril (Czech Republic), Daniel Vladar (Czech Republic) and Urho Vaakanainen (Finland) were still making their way over from Europe. All players still returning from overseas or from Canada will need to quarantine for the league-mandated 14 days.
Pastrnak, via Zoom, said on Monday that he is hoping to return to Boston prior to Phase 3. Phase 3, the start of NHL training camps, is set to begin on July 10th.
