Bruins to retire Willie O'Ree's No. 22 as Hurricanes visit

When Boston hosts the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday night, the Bruins will retire the No. 22 of Hall of Fame wing Willie O'Ree -- 64 years to the day since he broke the NHL's color barrier.

O'Ree suited up for the Bruins in 1957-58 as a 22-year-old wing out of New Brunswick. O'Ree, who is now 86, totaled four goals and 10 assists in 45 career games with Boston -- first on Jan. 18, 1958, and then the following night, and then in 43 games during the 1960-61 season.

The Bruins originally had planned to retire his number last season, but with the pandemic limiting attendance, the date was pushed back to commemorate the date of his entry to the NHL. O'Ree was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in the "builder" category in 2018.
