Boston Bruins defenseman Derek Forbort is not a fan of fans calling his team’s Winter Classic bear logo a ‘Meth Bear’

Boston Bruins forward Trent Frederic will be back playing his natural position and centering Nick Foligno and A.J. Greer against the Buffalo Sabres today.
Some fans and media tend to downplay the Winter Classic now since there are more than one outdoor games each season. Not the Boston Bruins though. They are revved up for the 2023 Winter Classic!
The Winter Classic uniform for the Boston Bruins features the growling bear logo that the unis from the late 70’s to the early nineties featured. For millennials, that bear logo has become know as the ‘Meth Bear’. Boston Bruins defenseman Derek Forbort was not aware of this and was not about to apologize for that in a recent Instagram exchange with ‘Spittin’ Chiclets’:
