The event is held the same day as “The Beanpot” a hockey tournament when four Boston rivals ( Boston College, Boston University, Harvard and Northeastern University) duke it out for bragging rights. It is a wicked pissah day of hockey.
But this was a special day for me as well because I was able to invite my Son to the tournament as my second shooter.
The hockey at the Travis Roy event was excellent. Even Jack Parker, Boston University’s famous hockey head coach made an appearance on the bench to give the players some words of encouragement.
After the hockey we all went to the Boston Garden for a player reception and to enjoy “The Beanpot” that evening.
Travis Roy is the author of ” The Eleven Seconds” which is his story of hockey, his injury and his quest to help others.
