Bruins taking applications to replace iconic anthem singer Rene Rancourt

BOSTON (WHDH) - The Boston Bruins are now taking applications to find a replacement for iconic national anthem singer Rene Rancourt.

Rancourt retired this past season after more than 40 years of singing in front of Boston fans.

There will no longer be a signature fist-pump following the anthem, but now someone else will get a chance to leave their mark.

The team will hold auditions on Aug. 5. Applications must be submitted by Aug. 1.

Several singers will be selected and rotated during the upcoming season, according to the team.
