Campbell River Boston Bruins fans packed the Rod Brind’Amour Arena for a fun-filled afternoon of hockey over the weekend.

It was a full-house for the charity event, which saw members of the Boston Bruins alumni take on the Campbell River Oldtimers in a just-for-kicks hockey game Sunday afternoon.

Ray Bourque led a star-studded line-up that included Bruins players of old like Al Iafrate, Andrew Raycroft, Bob Sweeney, Dave Shaw, Geoff Courtnall, Moe Lemay and Larry Melnyk.

Earlier in the day, 100 VIP ticket-holders attended a meet-and-greet with the players and had their team memorabilia signed.

The event raised money for three local groups: the Campbell River Oldtimers Hockey Club, Campbell River Minor Hockey Association and Cameryn’s Cause.
