Zdeno Chara and the Bruins Visited Boston Children’s as Gru and His Minions

The B's dressed up as Despicable Me characters for a great cause.

Each year, the Bruins stop by Boston Children’s Hospital for Halloween clad in hilariously ill-fitting costumes for a wonderful cause. Past hits have included Zdeno Chara as Frank from Donnie Darko, Dougie Hamilton and Torey Krug as Elsa and Olaf and from Disney’s Frozen, and Jordan Caron as a tic-tac-toe board.

This year, the B’s dressed up as characters from Dreamworks’ Despicable Me, with Chara as either Steve Carell’s Gru or the Tom Brady courtroom sketch, and Krug, Tuukka Rask, David Krejci, and Dorchester native Jimmy Hayes as Minions, the pill-shaped, gibberish-speaking hominids. The team visited with patients, signed a few autographs, and shared a few laughs.
