We all know major changes have taken place at the Bruins for the new season which is a clear indication that the team is looking for a new direction and most believe youth going to play a big role. While some of the veterans will still play an important role the spotlight is going to be on the young guns for the upcoming 2016-17 season.
So today we take a look at the 5 brightest Boston Bruins prospects the fans should be excited about this season.
This is one player that has been making huge waves throughout the AHL with his dazzling performances and nearly made his debut in 2015 and is one of the brightest prospects for fans to get excited about.
He scored a total of 60 points in 2015 and never backs down from a challenge and is the perfect utility player that can plan either in the center or the fourth line.
This player from Rhode Island gave a good account of his talents when given a chance towards the end of the previous season. Though there’s room for improvement in the attacking play his ability to read the play, fearlessness and ability to challenge even the biggest of opponents surely caught an eye.
To be a hit this season he’ll only need to show the same desire, work ethic and mental & physical fitness from last season on a more consistent basis.
At 6ft 5 inches this guy is definitely going to be a force to reckon with is the near future and performed exceptionally well in the AHL playoffs last season. He’s quick, aggressive and understands the game well.
Another superstar in the making that is more likely to only feature in the AHL this season but expect him in the big league soon enough.
If it wasn’t for a fractured Larynx this young kid would have surely left a bigger impact last season. Though he’s more likely to feature only as a backup this season having such a young and talented goalie wait in the wings is a problem a coach loves.
Though he’ll need time to get back into the right shape once again the team surely must give him a good run in to showcase his talent.
At just 20 years of age this forward player surely has age on his side and joined the bruins in 2014. He’s also quite good at the wings so expect to see him in action at some point. He showcased his raw talent in the AHL games last season ending up with a goal and an assist.
Spending some more time in the AHL this season will do him wonders and whether he features or not this year for bruins hinges on his performance in the pre-season.
Have your say on the players listed here and who you think will have the biggest impact come the season.
