Matt Brown Rides Duck Boats With Bruins

BOSTON (CBS) – Injured Norwood High School hockey player Matt Brown was a special guest at the Bruins parade Saturday.

He attended the sendoff party and then rode in one of the duck boats.

“I got chills,” he told WBZ-TV.   “I just think it’s really special.”

Matt broke his neck in a collision into the boards during a game in January 2010.

Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron visited him when he was getting treatment in Atlanta and the two have since become friends.
