Happy Labor Day to Boston Bruins fans and NHL fans alike.
We’ll have honest-to-goodness Boston Bruins news this week as the Boston Bruins Foundation will be holding their annual golf tournament on Wednesday, and we’ll be there to talk to the players in living color for the first time in about 18 months.
But for now, dig into a Labor Day edition of the BHN Puck Links where we honestly didn’t grind too hard in the corners to get you today’s links. Enjoy the rest of your day off and we’ll see you tomorrow.

From a purely self-indulgent standpoint, it’s crazy how time flies once you start having kids.
