All summer we waited to hear details about the brand new scoreboard that the Bruins had mentioned on a couple occasions. However, after most of the summer had passed with no news, and pictures came out showing most of the scoreboard still intact, it became clear that a new scoreboard was no longer on the table. Since then we have received word from a source within the Bruins' organization that they ran out of time, due to the shortened off-season, and that they expect to replace the board in the Summer of 2020.
However, the scoreboard is at least partially new this season as it saw and upgrade of its main video screens. The size of the screens are almost identical but quality was the objective for this upgrade. Daktronics has stated that the old boards had a 10mm pitch (space between the pixels) while the new board has only a 2.5mm pitch. They have upgraded from HD to 4k. Not the change most Bruins fans were hoping for, but it should make for a much more crisp image to get them by until next off-season.
