HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — The Boston Bruins are making a stop in Connecticut, where they plan to outfit young players with new hockey gear and mingle with fans.

Some current members of the NHL team, coaches, executives and New England Sports Network personalities are expected to be on hand for the annual Boston Bruins Fan Fest Tour of all six New England States.

Connecticut’s stop will be held Saturday, August 24, from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the state Capitol in Hartford.

Synthetic ice rinks are planned at the free events, where fans can participate in drills.

There will also be virtual reality experiences, fitness activities, face painting and Bruins trivia. Participating Bruins personalities will vary.
