There is something despicable about the Boston Bruins, and it isn’t their playing. The team got together for an amazing cause — to visit sick children at a Boston hospital. Click to see all of the heartwarming pics.

Boston Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara, went to Boston Children’s Hospital on Oct. 28 with his little minions Tuukka Rask, Torey Krug, Jimmy Hayes and David Krejci to visit young patients — and it was amazing. He dressed up as “Gru” from the hit movie Despicable Me and spread Halloween cheer to children throughout the hospital.

The boys have done it again. This year, the Boston Bruins came dressed to impress to the Boston Children’s Hospital as Despicable Me characters. They stopped in to give the kids treats, sign autographs and take photos and most importantly, lift these kids’ spirits — and they nailed it. “It’s really easy for us to come in and do this,” Torey Krug stated on the team’s official website. “The smiles on their faces, the laughs we get when we walk into a room.”

The Bruins’ Halloween trip to Children’s is an annual tradition, and it truly is a wonderful thing. Last year the group went as characters from Frozen. Yes, giant hockey players dressing up as princesses. It was a hard one to beat, but this year, the oversized minions definitely were a hit. This special group aren’t strangers to giving back to their community. They have participated in many charitable events such as their annual Cuts For A Cause event, where these players cut their hair and all of the proceeds were donated to Shawn Thornton‘s Foundation, The Boston Bruins Foundation and Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center. Keep it going guys!
