Bruin is simply defined as an archaic term for a bear. The Boston Bruins are known to be a professional ice hockey team that is based in Boston, Massachusetts, US. They are affiliates of the Northeast Division of the Eastern Conference of the National Hockey League (NHL).
A bruin is a young bear, older than a cub but younger than an adult and still dependent on the mother. Bruins are able to leave the den and venture off on their own and explore their world and generally get themselves into mischief.
