Bruins like college players

Bill Ladd has written an informative article in HF about the Bruins preference for college players over Europeans in the prospect ranks. Junior hockey players are not included in the article. In addition to Maxim Chudinov (D), other European prospects include Lars Volden (G) and Alexander Khokhlachev (C).

The Bruins drafting philosophy becomes pretty apparent when you compare their NCAA group to their European one: they boast nine skaters in the college ranks, to just one overseas. Obviously, the Bruins prefer to keep their talent close to home. The college group is led by Michigan State captain and recent free agent signing Torey Krug and former BC Eagles' captain Tommy Cross. The lone European representative, Maxim Chudinov was one of the best defenseman in KHL this year.

The college prospects and their current status include:

Torey Krug (D)
Brian Ferlin (RW)
Tommy Cross (D)
Justin Florek (LW)
Zach Trotman (D)
Ben Sexton (C/W)
Alexander Fallstrom (RW/LW)
Nick Tremblay (C)
Mark Goggin (C)
