We’re sure Bruins fans are fist pumping in honor of a Garden legend.
On Wednesday, the Bruins announced that beloved national anthem singer Rene Rancourt will retire at the end of the 2017-18 season.
Rancourt’s renditions of the Star Spangled Banner and O’Canada have been a tradition on Causeway Street since the 1975-76 season at the old Boston Garden. The Lewiston, Maine native continued singing the anthem for Bruins games across the street at TD Garden in its inaugural 1995-96 season.
Rancourt will put the finishing touches on his career during the team’s presumed playoff run. He’ll be honored by the Bruins on April 8 — the last regular season game of his career — in their 2017-18 finale against the Florida Panthers.
