Retired Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask was married to his longtime girlfriend Jasmiina Nikkila in Italy over the weekend.

The wedding allowed for something of a reunion, as many of Rask’s former teammates — some of whom are no longer with the Bruins — were in attendance.

One of those ex-Bruins was Milan Lucic, who spent 2007-15 with Boston, winning a Stanley Cup in 2011. Lucic documented much of the weekend on social mediacapturing past and present moments of the Bruins, including David Pastrnak, Brad Marchand, Patrice Bergeron, David Krejci and Torey Krug, among others.

Lucic, now with the Calgary Flames, and Krug, currently a member of the St. Louis Blues, spent time on the water with Krejci, who the Bruins hope to bring back this season after a year playing in the Czech Republic.

Also in attendance were current Bruin Charlie McAvoy, as well as Kevan Miller, who spent his entire career in Boston before retiring after the 2020-21 season. They could be seen enjoying the weekend festivities with their teammates on NHL Instagram.

Of course, the wedding also produced a viral moment, as this video of Rask showing off her dance moves made the rounds on social media:

So, with the Bruins in the middle of an important offseason, last weekend was a time for players and fans to reminisce about the past decade.
