Three members of the Bruins organization took home the jackpot at the NHL Awards in Las Vegas on Thursday.
Bruins goalie Tim Thomas won the Vezina Trophy (top goaltender), defenseman Zdeno Chara was awarded the Norris Trophy (top defenseman), and Bruins coach Claude Julien was honored with the Jack Adams Award (top coach).
“It’s always a great feeling to prove people wrong,” Chara said. “I played basketball, tennis, soccer, and it was all just part of a kid having fun. I just never quit. I was close, but I never quit.’’
