Boston Bruins Goalie Tuukka Rask Played Drums on Stage at This Boston Bar
Friday night, August 18, 2023, Bostonians at Loretta's Last Call got one awesome surprise.
Boston native Louie Bello was performing at the Boston country music hot spot on Lansdowne Street, behind Fenway Park. While Bello performed Eric Church's, "Drink in My Hand," a familiar face hopped up on the drums.
It was the one and only Tuukka Rask.
According to a WCVB article, Tuukka Rask:
played all 15 of his NHL seasons with the Bruins and is the franchise's all-time leader in regular-season games played by a goaltender (564), wins (308) and save percentage (.921). He also ranks second in franchise history with a 2.28 goals against average and 52 shutouts. When it comes to postseason play, Rask is the Bruins' all-time leader in games played (104) and wins (57). He ranks second with seven playoff shutouts and a .925 save percentage in the postseason. His 2.22 goals against average in the playoffs ranks fourth in franchise history.
Although Rask is an outspoken rock fan, he was clearly dabbling in the country music genre on the drum set.
What an awesome (and very Boston) surprise to patrons at Loretta's.
