Boston Bruins fans have the privilege to see their superstars David Pastrnak and Jeremy Swayman up close at TD Garden from the drop of the puck in October to playoff hockey in April. But if you can’t make the trek to Boston to witness your favorite B’s players dominate in person, you’re in luck. The National Hockey League announced Thursday that a new docuseries will premier on Amazon’s Prime Video this fall, offering unprecedented access to the NHL’s brightest stars.

Pastrnak and Swayman are among the selected group of players who will be followed throughout the season. In partnership with Box To Box Films and NHL Productions, the series is set to follow a handful of the NHL’s best, including Connor McDavid, Matthew Tkachuk, Jacob Trouba, Leon Draisaitl, Quinn Hughes, Jack Eichel, William Nylander, Filip Forsberg, Gabriel Landeskog, and more.

Pastrnak and Swayman have been included in NESN’s Behind the B, a series that airs throughout the season with behind-the-scenes footage of the Bruins, but nothing will compare to what will beam through your television this fall. From the producers of Netflix hit Drive to Survive, a Formula 1 docuseries detailing the life of professional racers, the NHL hopes to cash in on the impact that production had on racing. According to a 2022 poll, 53 percent of F1 fans admitted to watching the races due to their interest in Drive to Survive. More eyes will be on the NHL’s icons–including Pastrnak and Swayman–than ever before.

Pastrnak and Swayman are coming off impressive campaigns with the Black and Gold that ultimately fell short in the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Pastrnak’s 110 points were four points away from a career-high, while Swayman’s postseason save percentage of .933 was good for second-best in the field of competing netminders. Pastrnak netted the overtime game-winning goal against the Toronto Maple Leafs in Game Seven of the first round, and Swayman stood on his head all playoffs to keep the Bruins alive.

And we already know Pastrnak and Swayman embody unique personalities. You might think of Pastrnak repping his Barbie Girl costume after their outdoor win in Lake Tahoe, or Swayman’s constant poise between the Boston iron on the biggest stage. But this fall, Bruins fans will know the ins and outs of their beloved players, learning what it takes to compete at the highest level on a daily basis.
