Ducks Off the Ice by Adam Brady
Bruce Uncensored ... Kind Of
In the first episode of our new web series -- Bruce Boudreau Uncensored ... Kind Of -- the Ducks head coach touches on a number of topics focusing both on and off the ice. Included in the discussion are players currently at AHL Norfolk he's excited about, the proudest moment of his hockey career and the his most embarrassing moment as a coach.

I can't begin to tell you how great Bruce was to work with, not only in answering the dozen or so questions we gave him, but in coming up with his own wrinkles. In fact, the title of the segment, along with the introduction to it, was his idea.

We shot about 15-20 minutes worth of footage, which we'll use in this segment and future ones. And we plan to shoot more with him down the road, using questions submitted to us by fans on Twitter. (You can submit your own using the hastag #BUKO on Twitter).

Here's a snippet from episode 1:

"We were playing on the day after Christmas when I was coaching in Hershey, and we had to go to Bridgeport. What we would do was, we would get in our sweatsuit [for the bus ride] and it was a four-hour drive to Bridgeport. And when you get to the game, you put your suit on. It just so happened that day, when I was changing for the game, I’ve got my shirt and my jacket and everything else – I forgot my pants.

"After the laughter from [assistant coach] Bob Woods and our GM subsided, it was, “I’ve got no pants. What are we going to do?” So, we decided, Okay, me and Bob would wear sweatsuits on the bench that day. At the last moment, our radio guy was named John Walton, and he was wearing pants. So on the bus, I said, 'Come on. Let’s switch.' And he says, 'You’re never going to get into them. They’re a 32 waist.' But I did.

“Believe it or not, they were tight. They were so tight, I never moved one inch from behind the bench. If the puck had been shot at me, I was done. I couldn’t move. I could barely breath. Bob was doing line changes, and I was just holding my breath the whole game. We had quite a laugh about that afterward, because we won the game. Off the top of my head, that’s about as embarrassing as I could get.”

Here's the rest of episode 1. Look for more segments down the road.
