Zdeno Chara shows off Winter Classic jersey, Notre Dame rink in New Year's Instagram post

Zdeno Chara is ready for the Winter Classic. Are you?

The Boston Bruins captain teased the NHL's annual New Year's Day event with his latest Instagram post, which he sent out on Monday night from South Bend, Indiana. He posted photos of his Winter Classic jersey with the captain's "C" as well as a wide shot of the rink at Notre Dame Arena, where the Bruins will take on the Chicago Blackhawks at 1 p.m. EST on New Year's Day in the 2019 Winter Classic.

"Happy & Healthy New Year 2019 Full of Joy!" the post reads.

Chara returned last Sunday in a 5-2 loss to the New Jersey Devils at TD Garden. He's averaged 19:19 of ice time in two games back. He can reasonably be expected to up his minutes in the Winter Classic.

In other news, Tuukka Rask will get the start in goal for the Bruins. Not getting a call-up for the Bruins, unfortunately, is Notre Dame alum Anders Bjork.
