Tuukka Rask is back with the Boston Bruins and looks like he’s thirsty.
Shortly after returning to the club with a one-year contract for the remainder of the season, the goalkeeper asked where the beer was.
For those who may not remember, Rask joked in august that he would play for $ 250,000 and large amounts of Bud Light. Bud Light’s official Twitter account jumped in on the fun, offering the 34-year-old goalkeeper a “very official contract” that included beer bonuses for important achievements.
Rask is just the latest top NHL player to join Bud Light. Tampa Bay Lightning star Nikita Kucherov signed a sponsorship deal with the company through his savage press conference after winning the Stanley Cup.

On the ice, Rask returns to the Bruins’ fold after recovering from hip surgery in the offseason. He played 24 games in 2020-21, recording a .913 save percentage and a 2.28 goals-against average.
The Finnish native said late last season he was not interested in playing for an NHL team other than Boston. He won a Stanley Cup with the franchise in 2011 and has secured routes to the Cup final in 2013 and 2019. He’s looking to come out on top – and obviously with plenty of beer in hand.
“That’s why I never really, in my head, wanted to flirt with the opportunity to go elsewhere,” Rask said on a recent video conference. “For us as players, when you have a team like the Bruins, basically a bunch of us grew up together. So you kind of feel that brotherhood. You don’t want to leave guys on bad terms.
“I just wanted to come back and maybe help out and try to end up with a bunch of these guys that I’ve played my whole career with.”
