Congrats to the newlywed Boston Bruins winger Chris Wagner, who looked like he had a great time at his wedding last weekend that included a few cameo appearances from Boston Bruins teammates like Charlie McAvoy, and former Bruins teammates like Torey Krug.

Here’s a few of the videos and pictures from the Walpole native after he got engaged last fall prior to the start of the 2021 NHL regular season:

Wagner isn’t the only one changing his marital status as Weymouth native Charlie Coyle also got engaged this summer. Both players should be kick-starting a second wave of Bruins players with young kids as well, as Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand, David Krejci, Torey Krug, Zdeno Chara and Tuukka Rask all had children around the same skating around the B’s dressing room the last few years.
