Dread it. Run from it. Destiny arrives all the same.
And now, it’s here. Or should I say, Tuukka Rask is.
A free agent (really in title alone) for the first time in his career, the 34-year-old took his next steps towards his inevitable return to the Bruins by way of a professional tryout agreement signed with the Providence Bruins.
This, based on Rask’s updated timeline from last summer’s hip surgery, is the final step before he officially signs a contract and returns to Boston’s crease.
The Bruins are truly treating it as such, too, as Rask was made available to the media for the first time since he started working out on the sheet on at Warrior Ice Arena nearly two months ago.
And with Rask providing more than a sneak peek at what’s gone on and what’s ahead of him in 2021-22.
