The Boston Bruins are doing their part to help out former teammate Colby Cave, who's in a medically induced coma.
Cave, 25, who played for the Bruins organization from 2014-19 and is now with the Edmonton Oilers, is in a Toronto hospital after having surgery to remove a colloid cyst that was causing pressure on his brain.
Because Cave's wife, Emily, can't go into the room with him, members of the Bruins organization will record messages for her to play to her husband over a communication system.
“Hopefully that helps,” Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy told the Athletic. “Anything we can do. Every little bit helps and if we can chip in with some encouraging words, then that’s what we’re going to do.”
