Last night the Boston Bruins Foundation hosted their annual casino night at the Westin Boston Waterfront hotel. It was, as always a well supported affair — with fans flooding the game tables for a chance to gamble with their favorite players.

“It’s going well I think,” said defenseman Dougie Hamilton. “A lot of fun people here, it’s fun to be able to do this, and I think more fun after a win.”

It’s an event unlike any other held during the season and a chance for not only the fans to interact with the players; but it gives the players a chance to get to know their fans. All the proceeds benefit the Boston Bruins Foundation. This years event featured a special tribute to Sam Berns, a vibrant teen and close friend of the team, who lost his battle with Progeria earlier this month. A portion of the casino night proceeds will benefit the Progeria Research Foundation.

“It’s good, it’s a lot of fun,” said defenseman Torey Krug. “It’s nice to be able to come out and have conversation with some fans, it’s enjoyable.”

The evening allowed the Bruins a night of fun following their impressive 4-0 win against he Edmonton Oilers earlier that afternoon.

Adam McQuaid, Jarome Iginla and Brad Marchand took a few moments away from the tables to speak candidly about casino night and the importance of the Boston Bruins Foundation.
