PHOTO: Chris Nilan, Whitey Bulger and the Stanley Cup
Whitey Bulger, one of America's Most Wanted for years, posed for a picture with Chris 'Knuckles' Nilan and the Stanley Cup.
Here's a picture that was recently dug up of Boston native Chris Knuckles Nilan, the Stanley Cup and Whitey Bulger, as in the Boston mobster who was one of America's most wanted for years until he was recently caught. This photo was released by Whitey's defense team, among others.
On a completely unrelated note, Nilan had 141 penalty minutes in 18 postseason games in 1986, the only time he won a Stanley Cup (with the Canadiens).
(To be clear, I'm not making any implications, it's most likely it was a photo op and Whitey was just a fan.)
