The Stanley Cup champion Bruins got their rings Tuesday night at the Boston Harbor hotel, and all the players with the exception of Tomas Kaberle and Marc Savard were able to make it to the event. Owner Jeremy Jacobs gave the team a speech, after which the rings, which were delivered earlier in the day, were given to the players.

For Mark Recchi, it is ring No. 3. He also won with the Penguins in 1991 and the Hurricanes in 2006.

“They’re all special in their own way, the Carolina one’s beautiful, Pittsburgh was ’91, it was a long time ago,” Recchi said. “They were beautiful rings, but what they did with this, the Jacobs family, hats off to them. They did an incredible job, and the way they treated the staff and all the people in the building, what they’ve done is an amazing thing.”

Said Milan Lucic: “It’s the last bit before it all starts again. You really want to take it all in as much as you can. It was great that everyone was able to get here together again. It was great that Recchi was able to come in and [Shane] Hnidy and Michael Ryder. It’s awesome. It definitely gives you a good feeling going into next year.”

Tyler Seguin unsure of living arrangement 10.04.11 at 2:11 pm ET
By   |  6 Comments

It isn’t Chad Ochocinco declaring he’ll live with a fan, but Tyler Seguin said at Tuesday’s media day that he’s not sure where or with whom he’ll live this season. After spending his rookie year on his own, it appears the Bruins have different plans for the now 19-year-old.

That could mean a billet family for Seguin, or it could mean he might move in with another player. One thought that would have seemed to make sense a season ago was Mark Recchi, but the veteran winger said he didn’t have a spacious enough place, as he did with Jordan Staal in 2006.

“There wasn’t anything suitability for me with someone or with a family, but this year, speaking with management, it’s going to be a little different, but nothing is confirmed,” Seguin said.

The second-year player has been living with another one of the younger Bruins, and said that the Bruins have been talking to him since before he arrived back in Boston about a new living arrangement. If it is indeed a billet family, Seguin will be in a familiar situation. He lived with a billet family when playing OHL puck in Plymouth, Mich.

“I lived that life when I was 15, 16, 17 I think,” he said. “Just the two years there. Billet is always good. It’s nice to have someone to talk to, and dinners to have with a family. It makes you feel like you have a family there even though your family is in another country. I’m open to anything.”

Check back later for more on Seguin.

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli announced at Tuesday’s media day that the team waived goaltender Anton Khudobin on Monday. According to the Boston Globe’s Fluto Shinzawa, Khudobin cleared waivers.

With Khudobin headed to Providence, it appears the current roster is the one that fans will see in Thursday night’s season-opener. The final shoe to drop will be the signing of veteran forward Chris Clark, who has been in camp on a tryout. Both Clark and Chiarelli said Tuesday that nothing has been finalized.

Steven Kampfer out 2-4 weeks with sprained MCL 10.01.11 at 1:10 pm ET
By   |  Comments Off on Steven Kampfer out 2-4 weeks with sprained MCL

The Bruins announced Friday night that defenseman Steven Kampfer has a sprained MCL and will miss between two and four weeks. Kampfer injured his left knee Thursday night on a hit from Senators defenseman Jared Cowen in the Bruins’ 2-1 loss at TD Garden.

Kampfer’s absence means Matt Bartkowski will be the team’s seventh defenseman when the season begins Thursday against the Flyers. Kampfer and Bartkowski had been in a tight race for the spot prior to Kampfer’s injury.

This is Kampfer’s second knee injury since late last season. The Michigan native had previously injured his right knee playing for Providence and was unavailable through the first two rounds of the playoffs.

WILMINGTON  — The Bruins returned to practice Friday at Ristuccia Arean as they began to prepare for their final game of the preseason. Steven Kampfer was not on the ice, as the young defenseman injured his left knee Thursday night and had an MRI scheduled for Friday. With Kampfer out, Shawn Thornton donned a black jersey as a defenseman.
