Bruins Agree On Entry-Level Deal With Prospect Hargrove


The Boston Bruins have signed forward Colton Hargrove to a three-year entry-level contract yesterday, as the team continues to plan with future development of younger talent about to make the jump to professional hockey.

The 6’-1” 211 pound native of Rockwall, Texas is currently in his junior season at Western Michigan University of the National Collegiate Hockey Conference, and has appeared in 105 games posting 34-28-62 for the Broncos. Selected in the seventh round (205th overall) by the Bruins in 2012 National Hockey League’s entry draft, the left wing has shown what it takes to get a look from the top Bruins brass in the scouting procedure.

Hargrove is a physical, big forward who is tough to move in front of the crease while trying to screen the goaltender. Scouts see him as a “power forward”, but does have an exceptional skill set for a player his size. He is a gritty player that is not afraid to get under the skin of opposing players, and is not afraid to make a big hit to help his teams momentum. Maybe an option for a third or fourth line in Providence next season, if he does not return for his senior year at Western Michigan.
