As Steph pointed out earlier we are just 135 days away from the 2012-2013 Boston Bruins hockey season. While that may seem like a million years away, there are still things going on in Bruins nation. We’ve been rounded up the buzz on the B’s and here some updates on some of your favorite players.

If you’ve been following Intermission Report then you know two of the Bruins players participated in the World Tournament. David Krejci played on Team Czech Republic and scored the game winner for the team in the bronze medal game against Finland. Meanwhile oh captain my captain Zdeno Chara scored two goals in the championship game against Team Russia as he represented Team Slovakia. Ultimately his team ended up with the silver medal. He was name Best Defenseman of the Tournament.

Elsewhere in Boston, Tyler Seguin is in the healing process after having surgery on his hand.

“A few days after our season ended I ended up getting surgery on my hand,” Seguin said. “I hurt it back in March when we were in Florida and the tendon came out of it’s socket and I got that fixed, and finally got the cast off after two weeks and now I’m just walking around in a splint.” (Via NHL Bruins)

The 10 week process is leaving Seguin out of work out mode but that doesn’t mean he’s been out of the loop. Recently, Seguin has been tweeting up a storm (@TylerSeguin92) but he’s not the only B’s player on the social media outlet.

That’s right Andrew Ference (@Ferknuckle) joined twitter two days ago and since has been very active on it even setting up play dates with Seguin. The third B’s player on Twitter is newcomer Torey Krug (@TKrug47).

I guess we should all take the Bruins lead and just continue to live our summers day by day without dwelling over the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Instead, let’s send out good luck and well wishes to the Boston Celtics who have a chance to head to the NBA semi finals tonight! And also sending a big yay to my bandwagon team the LA Kings. Goalie Jonathan Quick is the first UMass  hockey player to make it to the Stanley Cup Finals so needless to say I have a reason for my bandwagon love.
