    BOSTON (CBS) – Several communities across the state had dozens of volunteers stepping up to lend a hand for those experiencing homelessness and hunger this Thanksgiving. One of those was the Pine Street Inn, where Boston Mayor Michelle Wu had the honor of carving the turkey with some help from Bruins star Charlie McAvoy. Hot meals, with all the fixings, were then handed out.

    BOSTON (CBS) — Charlie McAvoy had quite the four-game stretch last week. On Monday, the Bruins blue liner was named the NHL’s second star of the week. In Boston’s four games last week, McAvoy tallied a pair of goals and dished out five assists for seven points. Those two goals and seven points were tied for the lead among defensemen. McAvoy was tied for third in points among all skaters for the week.

    BOSTON (CBS) — Charlie McAvoy is now going to be a member of the Boston Bruins for a long, long time. The 23-year-old defenseman was all smiles when chatting with reporters about his new eight-year extension with Boston on Friday. Receiving the biggest deal that the Bruins have every handed out likely played a part in McAvoy’s endless grin. But he’s really just happy to be in Boston for the foreseeable future, a place that the Long Island native now calls home.

I moved here full-time; I’m here in the summer and...
    20 of the greatest love songs in country music history Companies Hiring for the Holidays Looking to Fill Nearly a Million Jobs © Provided by NBC Sports Charlie McAvoy is going to be a Boston Bruin for a very long time. The team and McAvoy have agreed to a brand new eight year, $76 million contract extension that will keep the standout defenseman in Boston through the end of the 2029-30 season. That comes out to a salary cap hit of $9.5 million per season. He is currently in the final year of a three-year, $14.7 million contract that has a salary cap hit of $4.9 million per season. Obviously, the next contract is a fairly significant raise almost doubling in average yearly value. This is honestly a great deal for everybody. McAvoy becomes one of the highest paid defenders in the league — as he should be — while the Bruins keep a 23-year-old franchise defender in place for nearly the next decade. He has already become Boston’s best, most reliable defender and is a significant part of...
    BOSTON (CBS) — The Boston Bruins have locked up their No. 1 defenseman for a very long time. Just days after Cam Neely told the media that the Bruins were working on a deal with Charlie McAvoy, Bob McKenzie reported that an agreement for eight years at $9.5 million annually had been reached.

Still just 23 years old, McAvoy is entering his fifth NHL season — his sixth if you count his debut in the 2017 postseason as a 19-year-old. He averaged 24 minutes of ice time per game last year, scoring five goals with 25 assists with a plus-22 rating, finishing fifth in Norris Trophy voting. He averaged 26:39 of ice time during the Bruins’ playoff run, registering a goal and 11 assists for 12 points in 11 games.
    BOSTON (CBS) — The NHL announced the winners of its major awards on Tuesday night. No Bruins took home any hardware, but a pair of Bruins fared pretty well in a couple of significant categories. While the Hart Trophy — the NHL’s MVP award — was always going to belong to Connor McDavid (he was the unanimous winner, receiving all 100 first-place votes), Bruins winger Brad Marchand finished at fifth place. Marchand received six second-place votes, five third-place votes, 16 fourth-place votes and 19 fifth-place votes. McDavid, Auston Matthews, Nathan MacKinnon and Sidney Crosby finished ahead of him. David Pastrnak also received a single fifth-place vote. 2021 Hart Trophy voting (voting points) 1. Connor McDavid, EDM 1,000 2. Auston Matthews, TOR 600 3. Nathan MacKinnon, COL 313 4.

    BOSTON (CBS) — After Game 5, Bruce Cassidy implored the referees to simply call penalties on the Islanders when they commit infractions. In the first period of Game 6, Cassidy got his wish, as two tripping penalties were called on the Islanders. But in the opening minute of the second period, Cassidy was likely perturbed once again, as a high and late hit was delivered on his best defenseman, with no penalty being called. The play came just 14 seconds into the second period. Charlie McAvoy chased Kyle Palmieri into the Boston zone. Palmieri got a shot on net, and Tuukka Rask made the save. McAvoy and Palmieri continued skating behind the Boston net as Rask covered the puck to stop play. As McAvoy passed by Palmieri, the winger elevated his shoulder and elbow up into the jaw of McAvoy, sending the D-man to the ice in pain. Somehow no penalty for this shot to the head by Palmieri on McAvoy after the whistle.

That was enough to prompt an Islanders fan with the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs on the brain to come outside. “Listen, you guys aren’t allowed to work on this block until this series is over!” he shouted, maybe only partially in jest. Charlie Charlie Sr. laughed from a distance. He knows more interactions like this one are in store as long as his son Charlie Jr. — one of the NHL’s top defensemen — leads the Bruins against the Islanders in a series that opens at 8 p.m. Saturday in Boston. Games 3 and 4 will be played 20 minutes away from Long Beach, up the Meadowbrook State Parkway at Nassau Coliseum. “It’s so strange,” the elder McAvoy told The...
    BOSTON (CBS) — Charlie McAvoy was a late scratch on Tuesday night for the Bruins. The team is going to be without its best defenseman for a bit longer. McAvoy is not with the team in Washington and won’t play Thursday or Saturday, Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy announced.

But I guess I’ll get the updates from the trainers and we’ll be looking at Sunday, seeing as he’s already back there, I don’t think we’ll bring him back for the one game in Philly.” READ MORE: Report: Its Doubtful That Julian Edelman Can Play Entire 2021 Season After Thursday night’s game in Washington, the Bruins travel to Philadelphia for a game on Saturday afternoon, before returning home to host the Capitals on Sunday night.

    By Michael Hurley, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — With all due respect to Brad Marchand and his breakaway goal in overtime on Wednesday night, the play of the game did not belong to the man who scored the game-winning goal. That honor belongs to the man who set it up. RELATED: Meet Franchy Cordero, The Power-Hitting Outfielder Acquired By Red Sox For Andrew Benintendi That play, of course, was made by Charlie McAvoy, who was in retreat toward his net while defending a 2-on-1 Rangers rush before turning defense into offense in the blink of an eye. With Pavel Buchnevich carrying into the Boston zone, McAvoy positioned himself between the puck carrier and Adam Fox. McAvoy extended his stick for a quick poke-check attempt but then geared up for the pass he knew was coming. And as soon as Buchnevich sent his pass from dot-to-dot, McAvoy batted the puck out of midair to kill the scoring chance. That whack deadened the puck, which then deflected off Patrice Bergeron’s skate and headed back to McAvoy. Without hesitating, McAvoy sent a controlled clear...
    BOSTON (CBS) — David Pastrnak and Ondrej Kase are still MIA for the Boston Bruins. But at least they got one of their top blue liners back in the fold Thursday morning. Charlie McAvoy was back on the ice for Boston at Warrior Ice Arena after missing the team’s previous two practices. That’s great news for the Bruins are they prepare for the restart of the NHL season. McAvoy had just 32 points before the NHL’s break in action (five goals, 27 assists), but he was a key part of Boston’s defense. He placed third on the team in plus/minus at plus-24, and was first among non-goaltenders in time on ice (1,552 minutes) and average time on ice at 23:10 per contest. In his 67 games played, McAvoy was an absolute workhorse on the Boston blue line. As for the return of Pastrnak and Kase, that remains up on the air. On Wednesday, Bruins president Cam Neely said he didn’t think either player would be back before the team leaves for Toronto on Sunday. Boston’s first game back is Aug....
