BOSTON (CBS) – Not even the NHL Lockout can keep Rene Rancourt’s vocal chords silent.

For all those Boston Bruins fans that want to hear the Boston Garden legend sing the National Anthem this year — and don’t want to wait around for the NHL to get their act straight — they just have to take a short trip down the Mass Pike.

Rancourt has signed a one game ATO (Anthem Tryout Agreement) with the AHL’s Worcester Sharks, and will sing the National Anthem on Sunday when they take on the Portland Pirates at the DCU Center in Worcester.

“I would like to thank the Worcester Sharks for the opportunity to stay in shape during the NHL work stoppage,” said Rancourt.  “I look forward to get my vocal cords back in game shape in the AHL and look forward to making my Sharks debut at the DCU Center on December 16.”
