The NHL comes to the US
The NHL was expanded on the request of Charles Adams, a successful Boston businessman who fell in love with the game after watching the Stanley Cup Final in 1924. On his request, the NHL granted Adams with a Boston based franchise in November of the same year. And so it was that the Bruins became one the earliest expansion franchises and the earliest one to be based in the US.
Picking a Name
When Charlie Adams decided to pick a name for the fledgling organization he wanted it to represent the personality of the team. He wanted people to imagine the fury and passion of an untamed wild beast. Thus, ‘Bruins’ which is an old name for brown bears was selected. In keeping with the name, the original uniforms of the Bruins were brown and yellow.
