Todd Angilly is in his first year as the national anthem singer at Boston Bruins home games, taking over for the legendary Rene Rancourt, who retried last season after over 40 years on the job.
Angilly has been seen on TV before every playoff game belting out the national anthem (as well as Canada’s in the first round when Boston played Toronto) in his traditional black suit and yellow and black striped tie. And man can he sing.
He absolutely nails it every time.
NBC shared a great story about the singer during Saturday night’s Game 2 broadcast. Angilly actually tends bar in the arena before and after singing the anthem. He just takes a quick break to throw on his suit and get down to the ice.
Check his story out, it’s pretty great.
