Bruins fans, along with seeing him around the Garden for an additional two years, we can also love Shawn Thornton for his stance on homosexuality in the National Hockey League. Thornton states in an article with David Zimmerman:
“Honestly, my teammates are like family so there would be support. I would personally [support] him and I’m pretty sure everyone in our locker room would. We’ve got a pretty good bunch of guys. I don’t think there would be any issues.”(Shawn Thornton)
It’s good to know that the You Can Play Act is effective in the Boston locker room as it is making itself known around the League. Good for you Shawn, you make us proud! See you in 135 days!
