Boston Bruins Prospect Update


The Boston Bruins are find most of their prospects in North America. A good amount of their players are playing at a professional level as well. Either in the AHL, NCAA. or even in the big leagues.

In the AHL, David Pastrnak and Alexander Khokhlachev are thriving. Both have put up just above 1 point per game. The two also had five goals while spending their time there. Pastrnak and Khokhlachev have now both seen NHL action after Pastrnak’s debut Monday night. They both have shown they are meant to be by impressing coaches and fans as well.

Although Pastrnak is known to take chances, it has been paying off for him and the Bruins. In his debut he created some quality offensive chances. Khokhlachev also let people know his name when he scored a dazzling shootout winner in his debut.

Another player in the AHL is center prospect Ryan Spooner. Spooner has had a decent start to the AHL season so far with 11 points in 14 games. He has been faulty in the defensive zone, but things can easily  be changed. Spooner is a good possession player, so if he can put up the numbers he usually does he can get back on track with his two-way game style.

A position that has remained steady with its normal high quality play is goaltending. Top goalie prospect Malcom Subban has had an average start to the year. His save % is at .923, which is just a few ticks above the league average at .910. Zane McIntyre is playing at the same pace with a .927% save percentage. McIntyre is playing with the University of North Dakota.

Moving to the blue-line, recently called up Joe Morrow the most consistent out of the Bruins prospect group. Acquired in a trade with the Dallas Stars, Morrow showed his former team what they’re missing when he scored his first NHL goal against them Monday night. Morrow has shown more maturity in his game this year. His two-way skills have improved and he will only get better playing with the solid defensive core the Bruins have.

The Boston Bruins have an outstanding group of young players who are on their way to the NHL. With the way these young players are developing, it seems as though the Bruins middle of the pack days maybe over after just a half season.
