Peverley Poolside

Peverley Poolside

After a tough workout Sunday morning in Guelph, Bruins forward Rich Peverley was afforded a summer luxury not often available during a grueling NHL season – an afternoon to spend time with his family at his home.  Following a cannonball into the pool and a swim with his daughter, Rich sat down poolside with BostonBruins.com to talk about some off-ice interests.

Right away, Bruins beat reporter John Bishop fired the tough question at him – Right now, what are your favorite songs on your iPod?

“I went and saw Coldplay a couple of weeks ago. I really liked their concert,” he said after a moment’s thought. “I’d say Paradise or Charlie Brown from their new CD… and I always have a Pearl Jam song on there.”

When asked if he could sing a few songs for us instead of naming the tracks, No. 49 smirked, “Can I sing a few bars of it? Probably not…”

Switching gears from music to the big screen, Peverley admitted it’s tough to get the movie theater. “It’s such a treat when we get to go to the movies – I don’t get to go that much.” But he has seen a flick with one of his teammates included in the credits…

“I’ve only seen Ted, and the only thing I saw was Shawn Thornton coming in and punching the guy out when he jumps on stage, which was pretty funny,” he laughed.

“I’d give him a 10 out of 10 on that one.”

Much of the forward’s time in the summer is spent preparing for the upcoming season – strict workouts and a close eye on nutrition – a standard for any NHL athlete.

But if he was given a bye and could give into his guilty pleasure, he’d choose what many consider an American classic - a hamburger and French fries – but would add his own Canadian twist - “or poutine,” he added. “Especially when you’re in Canada.”

When it comes to hobbies or interests off the ice, you’ll catch Peverley tuning into another sport whenever he can.

“I’m a pretty avid soccer fan,” he said. “I got to see them in Boston. I got to spend time with Liverpool, which was pretty amazing.”

“Yesterday was the first day of the new soccer season – the Premier League season – and I watched a few games. I follow it pretty closely and I’m a pretty diehard fan.”

And we had to ask… Who is the biggest prankster on the team (if there is one…)?

“I don’t even know if we have one,” said Peverley. “I guess Marchy… but he’s not much of a prankster – it’s just what other guys force him to do,” he laughed.
