Zdeno Chara reunites with family in Boston for first time since signing with Capitals: ‘It was good to be a dad’
Zdeno Chara will make his long-awaited return to TD Garden tonight for the first time since signing with the Capitals as an unrestricted free agent in late December.
Chara singular played in over 1,000 games for Boston. The city was his home for 14 out of his 24 total seasons in the NHL. While a Bruin, Chara won the Mark Messier Leadership Award, the James Norris Memorial Trophy, but most memorably he brought the Stanley Cup to Boston in 2011.
Although there won’t be fans in the arena to give Chara a standing ovation, he still feels their support.
