JUNIOR BRUINS TO HONOR 9/11 HERO - Junior Hockey News

Marlboro, MA- This Sunday, on the 10 year anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon, the Junior Bruins will honor the memory of one of the many heroes from that day.

Welles Crowther, a classmate and friend of Bruins' coaches Andy Powers and Chris Masters at Boston College, died that day as he was helping save those who were trapped in the South Tower. Welles, now known as the Man in the Red Bandana, played lacrosse at Boston College (class of '99) and was the captain of his high school hockey team (Nyack HS).

On September 11, 2001, he showed courage and compassion beyond belief in saving the lives of a dozen people in the South Tower.

This Sunday, at the Woodchuck Showcase in Burlington, Vermont all three Bruins' teams (EJHL, Empire and Little Bruins) will wear red bandanas as a tribute to Welles.
