Boston Bruins Team Information

NHL Boston Bruins Team Information

On November 1st, 1924 the Boston Bruins made their debut as the first American team in the NHL defeating the Montreal Maroons at home 2-1. However, success would not be common for the first year Bruins as they lost their next 11 games on the way to finishing in last place with a 6-24 record.


Grocery magnate Charles Adams bought an NHL franchise in 1924 for a reported $15,000. The Bruins team colors of yellow and brown matched those of his Brookside grocery stores. Hockey fans in Boston were still packing the Boston Arena until the Boston Gardens opened in 1928. The Boston Bruins are known as one of the original six teams of the NHL.
