Whole bunch of kids!
The Bruins released their roster for next weekend’s prospect tournament yesterday evening, and we should see some pretty decent talent on the ice up on Buffalo.
The big name you’re waiting for: yes, 2021 first-round pick Fabian Lysell is on the list!
Here are the rest of the players heading to the tournament:
Forwards: Samuel Asselin, Matt Filipe, Jesper Froden, Curtis Hall, Brett Harrison, Jakub Lauko, Lysell, Ian McKinnon, Oskar Steen, Eduards Tralmaks, and Alex-Olivier Voyer
Defensemen: Jack Ahcan, Victor Berglund, J.D. Greenway, Brady Lyle, Ryan Mast, Andrew Peski, Nick Wolff
Goalies: Kyle Keyser, Jeremy Brodeur
Along with the roster players listed above, the Bruins invited X non-Bruins to come along: Marc Boudreau (F, 18, most recently with the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds), Jacob Hudson (F, 20, most recently with the Moncton Wildcats), and Noah Dorey (D, 18, most recently with the Kelowna Rockets).
Along with Lysell, I’m interested in seeing how Jesper Froden, a recent signee from Sweden, lines up against fellow youngsters.
The tournament begins on Friday night.
