The 200 Foundation along with Bay State Brewery of Worcester, MA is proud to announce that this year’s 2023 honoree is none other than John “The Chief” Bucyk. John, as I am sure many of you may know, is a former professional hockey player that played for the Boston Bruins. John has been associated with the Bruins since his retirement in 1978 in one way or another and has been with the Boston Bruins for over 66 years. He manages to give back to the community in various capacities. One of these charities, The Children’s Glaucoma Foundation is very near and dear to his heart. John has been the recipient of many NHL awards such as the Lady Byng Memorial trophy for outstanding sportsmanship in both 1971 and 1974, the Lester Patrick trophy for contributions to hockey in the U.S. in 1977 and was also named in 2017 as one of the 100 Greatest NHL players of all time. As a player for the Boston Bruins for over 21 years, John’s #9 jersey was retired in 1980 and he became a member of the NHL Hockey Hall of Fame in 1981. As of the 2023 season, John has been involved with professional hockey for 69 years and is the longest tenure hockey player on record. We are extremely proud to call John a longstanding supporter of the 200 Foundation family.
