Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey says the Boston Bruins need to pay hourly and part-time staff impacted by the suspension of NHL play. Healey said she's received many calls from hourly workers amid the coronavirus pandemic, some of whom are TD Garden employees.

"I just want them to act, I just want them to step up and do something," Healey told the Boston Herald's Marisa Ingemi. "Do something for their workers. Every other (NHL) team has said they are going to provide financial support for hourly workers who have been hurt by this, and that runs the range of paying their salaries or paying for their living expenses … I just want them to act now."

The Bruins' ownership, which is essentially billionaire Jeremy Jacobs and his family, said on March 13th they were "actively exploring support options and will have further information in the coming days." However, nothing has been publicly announced.



Jacobs is also the owner of Delaware North, the food service and hospitality company that employs many workers at TD Garden. His net worth is estimated at $3.2 billion. Brad Marchand and several of his teammates have donated to a fundraising campaign for TD Garden workers. It has raised more than $36,000 so far.
