BOSTON, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — He’s said many times that Bolognese is his favorite meal, but now Boston Bruins player David Pastrnak has a product to show for it.
Pastrnak is partnering exclusively with Stop & Shop to stock “Pastrnak’s Pasta” on Tuesday in participating New England stores. Each box will cost 88 cents, the same number he sports during Bruins games, and all profits earned will go to pediatric cancer research and care at Dana Farber and the Jimmy Fund.
“I want to take advantage of the position I’m in,” said Pastrnak to the NHL, “It takes very little for me to help the community. It’s so easy for us to take a couple hours per day [to help] Dana Farber.”
Pastrnak posted a video on his Twitter of him slapping boxes of his pasta as if they were hockey pucks.
The Bruins forward also shared his unique pasta creations, “I came up with this new recipe: with Bolognese, I put a scoop of alfredo and a scoop of pesto. Doesn’t sound great but tastes unbelievable.”
The Boston Bruins are in their 2021 preseason, and face off against the Washington Capitals Wednesday night.
