The Bruins tough guy revealed yesterday that both and he and his wife, Erin, have finally secured their green cards.
“We got our cards and then went out and celebrated Canada Day weekend,” quipped Thornton, who settled in Charlestown and plans to remain in the area when his playing career is over.
“It doesn’t get much better, first, the Stanley Cup, and now my green card,” said Thornton. “It took four years to get them. I don’t think we celebrated like we did after winning the Stanley Cup, but we’re very excited.”
