Barring a setback, a Mar. 23 meeting with the Islanders will make the Bruins the first local team to have fans back in the stands when Massachusetts reopens the doors to TD Garden later this month.

And the Bruins finally have a plan when it comes to that reopening policy put forth by Governor Charlie Baker.

In accordance with the 12 percent capacity policy, which will make about 2,100 seats available for B’s games, the Bruins announced Friday that they have “a very limited number of tickets available for sale.”

Their release noted that Bruins season ticket holders, game plan holders, and Boston Garden Society members will receive priority access to purchase tickets based on availability. That was certainly expected, as the majority of the their season ticket holders were charged for almost their entire 2020-21 payment plans last year.

But the reopening may not come with a full shutout for those without a plan or membership, as the team also shared a form to sign up for updates regarding potential single-game ticket offerings and availability.

Speaking before the start of the season, Bruins president Cam Neely spoke about a gradual reopening process, with obvious hopes that the Bruins would be operating at full capacity at some point this spring/summer.
