Bruins anthem singer Rene Rancourt will finally get to work later this week. Rancourt, locked out of his normal NHL job at TD Garden, has signed a one-game anthem tryout agreement (ATO) with the AHL’s Worcester Sharks.

On Dec. 16, Rancourt will sing the national anthem prior to Worcester’s afternoon home game at the DCU Center against Portland. Rancourt will also sign autographs before the game.
