Former Boston Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy celebrated his recent Stanley Cup victory with the Vegas Golden Knights with his family on Cape Cod on Thursday.
After hoisting the Cup back in June following a 9-3 trouncing of the Florida Panthers, Cassidy first told reporters of his intention to bring the trophy to the Cape, where he and his family usually spend their summers.
Cassidy’s vision ultimately came to fruition Thursday afternoon. Cassidy, his wife, and his children posed for photos with the Cup in the sand on what was a beautiful summer day in Massachusetts.
In a post on social media, the Knights simply wrote, “Now there’s a sight to sea.”
Prior to his trip down to the Cape, Cassidy stopped at Glover Elementary School Milton, where he helped launch The Cassidy Murray Foundation. The foundation is named in honor of one of his daughter’s friends who tragically died in Aruba while vacationing with her parents in 2022.
The foundation hopes to help families dealing with grief following a tragic loss by increasing access to trauma and grief therapy.
In June 2022, Cassidy was fired by the Bruins after six seasons, nearly 250 wins, and a Stanley Cup Final appearance in 2019.
Cassidy was out of work a grand total of a week before the Vegas hired him as their coach. Less than a full calendar year since putting pen to paper, Cassidy guided Vegas to its first championship in franchise history.
