"Hello, tiny human" -Chara

When you talk about the greatest defencemen of this generation you would be remiss to not include Zdeno Chara. The man is a freak of nature in multiple ways – size and strength being to go-to attributes of course – and is a surefire hall of famer.

The Bruins honored him for his 1,000th career game on Tuesday after Chara hit the mark on the Bruins latest road swing. Tonight wasn’t any less of a celebration because he did it away from home though, Big Z recorded three points against the Lightning in Boston.

Watch the ceremony.

With 1,000 games in the books I have to ask…

What’s your favorite Chara moment?

Mine has to be his consistent demolition of pucks in the hardest shot contest.
