Bruins Honor Player and Retire Another Number

Boston Bruins forward Cam Neely had his number retired tonight. Cam's decade long career was cut short after injury because of the physical style that he used on the ice. He led the team with 55 career goals.

Perhaps his best known achievement is the establishment of the Neely House Foundation. It's mission is to provide housing for families that suffer with cancer disease.

Bob Snow summed it up best in his NHL.com article.
Last night, Bruin Nation recognized a unique player. From here on, anyone can look up at the No. 8 banner, smile, and realize how great Cam Neely truly was in the history of the Boston Bruins.
