NHL announces rosters for Bruins-Canadiens alumni game

The NHL has announced the rosters for the Boston Bruins vs. Montreal Canadiens alumni game that will take place on New Year’s Eve, the day before the 2016 Winter Classic, at Gillette Stadium.

Boston’s roster features some of the greatest Bruins players of all time, headlined by NHL Hall of Fame defenseman Ray Bourque. The legendary blueliner, whose No. 77 is retired in the rafters at the TD Garden, is joined by fellow legends Cam Neely, Terry O’Reilly, Mark Recchi, Rick Middleton, and Al Iafrate, among many others.

Neely, the Bruins President, is joined by Don Sweeney, his General Manager, on the ice.

Montreal counters with a handful of superstars from their days as well, including Guy Carbonneau, Stephane Quintal, Eric Desjardins, Larry Robinson, and Mats Naslund, to name a few.

Bruins coaches will feature famous names Don Cherry, Mike Milbury, and Derek Sanderson. Montreal will have Yvan Cournoyer, Jacques Demers, and Guy Lafleur.

The alumni game will be broadcast on NBCSN, while the Winter Classic will be featured on WHDH on January 1.
