In 2015, the Boston Bruins entered into a partnership with Ocean 24 SE client O.R.G. Packaging which is based in Beijing, China. The Bruins were the first NHL team and first North American professional sports organization to have a partnership with O.R.G. Packaging. The goal of the partnership is to grow the sport of hockey in China, strengthen the connection between the Bruins and the local Chinese community in New England, as well as educate North American residents about the growth of hockey in China.
This past summer, current Bruins players Matt Beleskey and David Pastrnak, along with Bruins alumni Andrew Raycroft and Bob Sweeney visited China as a part of "Bruins Global: China 2016" presented by O.R.G. Packaging.
