Bruins Forward Seth Griffith’s Working Hard To Stay In The NHL


The Boston Bruins as an organization may not be pleased with the start to this season, but one thing that the team can be happy about is the progression of their prospect players in their development in the American Hockey League with the Providence Bruins. One player that who has certainly stood out in the “revolving door” of auditioning roster spots has been Wallaceburg, Ontario native Seth Griffith.

The 5’-9”, 192 pound forward was the Bruins fifth round selection (131st overall) in the 2012 National Hockey League Entry Draft. Before he was drafted by the Bruins, he had a very impressive junior career in the Ontario Hockey League with the London Knight. While playing in 207 games for the Knights, he posted 102 goals and 129 assists.

After signing a three-year entry-level contract in April of 2013, Griffith started his first season of pro hockey in Providence where he played in 69 games tallying 20 goals, and 30 assists. This season he only played in 3 games for the Baby Bruins as he has spent most of his time on Interstate 95 with call-up to the NHL club.

In 15 games so far with the NHL Bruins, Griffith has been playing very well, and is currently ninth in scoring on the team with five goals, and two assists. His compete level, and solid offensive skills have been a bright spot on a Bruins team which is struggling to get things moving offensively. Griffith has great “hockey sense”, and at the NHL level he is thinking the game like a seasoned veteran and has contributed not only on the stat sheet, but with fellow Bruins teammates in his continued development.
