Matt Kalman cleans out his Bruins Development camp notebook and takes a closer look at a few players who impressed on the ice.
Sean Kuraly used the Bruins’ development camp last week at Ristuccia Arena to introduce himself to his new organization and show off his improving skills.
With a track record that includes just eight goals scored in four NHL seasons and 14 games lost to three suspensions, forward Zac Rinaldo doesn’t strike many outside observers as someone who can realistically make the Bruins a better team this season.
In need of a few more bodies on their blue line, the Boston Bruins are one of the teams showing interest in Cody Franson.
A little more than one year after the Bruins drafted him in the second round, we finally got to see how Ryan Donato would fare against top-level competition.
Even before the Bruins used the 2015 NHL Draft to add 10 more prospects, including five in the first two rounds, forward Danton Heinen had elevated the level of promise in Boston’s group of players for the future.
If the Bruins find themselves in a bunch of shootouts next season, they may want to have rookie Jake Debrusk on their list of shooters.
Luckily for forward Zachary Senyshyn he was at the NHL Draft last month when the Bruins selected him 15th overall in Sunrise, Fla.
Defenseman Rob O’Gara is the type of player Bruins development camp was made to benefit.
Zane McIntyre left North Dakota after three seasons to turn pro and officially signed with the Bruins on July 1.
