One of my all-time favorites, so happy to have him back. The Goal still gives me chills whenever I watch it, even a decade later.

It's good to see that the organization takes care of its own. Glad he's here!

He got his revenge.

But honestly I want him in the Booth doing Color commentary. He'd be great.
Agreed.

I like that they are making an effort there.

How many players is that now? Hendrickson, Brunette, Bomber, I would think Cullen would take a job.

Did Bruno ever wear the "C" during his time here?

Great move to get him in the organization...not just a fan favorite, a solid hockey citizen.

Good for Bruno. He was one of the best of all time with the puck behind the net. Hopefully he can impart some of that wisdom into the young players.

I'm glad the Wild organization found a slot for him.

Since we're talking about Brunette and retirement, how about his goal to send Roy into retirement?


I still can't believe that playoff run. So much fun, even if it was "boring" hockey.

Welcome home Bruno, so happy to hear the organization has brought him on! Was so hoping once he retired they would in some capacity, think his personality and reputation with everyone will really be great for the organization and couldn't be happier for him!

Still Bruno's #1 fan!

Great news, one of my favorite players to watch!


Looking forward to see what Bruno can do for us.
