I’ve got a few school-age (toys) so far, halfway through infant, so we’re making our way,” said defenseman Brandon Carlo.”Legos are hot, as usual, and Squishmallows,” said defenseman Charlie McAvoy.”A lot of fun,” Ullmark said. “It’s getting easier and easier for every year.”All of those toys, which will go to kids unable to celebrate the holidays at home, were purchased through donations from Bruins players and the Boston Bruins Foundation.
