Former Bruins Star Ray Bourque Apologizes for Crossing Stop & Shop Picket Line

Former Boston Bruins star Ray Bourque is apologizing for crossing a picket line to shop at a Stop & Shop supermarket in Massachusetts while the workers are on strike. 

Bourque was caught on video leaving a North Andover Stop & Shop on Monday as a worker said "Shame on you." 

Thousands of Stop & Shop workers at 240 stores in Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island went on strike last week over what they say is an unfair contract proposal. 

Bourque, a 22-year member of the NHL players' union, apologized on Twitter. 

He said he had a "medical condition that I was preparing for" and "mistakenly crossed the picket line." He promised to walk the picket line in solidarity with Stop & Shop workers once his medical issue is resolved.
