As frequent;y happens there were several guys who slid out of the first round as teams went off the board for picks. So here’s a quick look at some of the guys the Bruins could draft at #40.
Prince is a native of the same stretch of ice the produced Patrick Kane. His sister is an athlete as well.
Scott Mayfield is another big, raw defenseman playing in the USHL and committed to NHL player factory University of Denver. Definitely a project, but that’s a good place for him to land to work up to the NHL.
Tomas Jurco could be picked up, he’s well regarded for his shootout skill in by his Saint John’s head coach. Not a huge player, does interesting things with the puck. I’m surprised he landed outside the top thirty.
Seth Ambroz at 211lbs is one of the bigger forwards on the board in the top two rounds. And with all the bigger, badder defenseman in the NHL and even larger more aggressive forwards he could be a nice big gun to play behind Lucic and Horton in a few years.

Alexander Khokhlachev is a very interesting Russian, Chiarelli has two Russian defensemen in the stable, why not a forward who is a center and left winger.
