Good to see he's putting on weight. He was the best defenseman in prep this past season despite playing on a young, inexperienced team. Logged about 35 minutes a night.

Bruins benefited from him having played just 1 year of prep hockey before being drafted. Most NHL teams get 2 years to look at guys at that level, so I think some clubs were asleep at the switch. Getting him with the last pick of the fifth round was fine value.
Kirk, you were right about him. H

e's having no issues with keeping up with the top players in camp. If he keeps it up then he is definitely going to be a steal.
