BRUINS ATTEMPTING TO MOVE TOP PROSPECT TO UPGRADE BLUELINE

According to Boston Bruins insider Joe Haggerty, the Bruins are in the process of trading top prospect Urho Vaakanainen. The organization is hoping that they can trade the young, promising prospect for a piece that could bolster their blueline.

Boston has a gaping hole in its left side for a defenseman after Torey Krug signed with the St. Louis Blues and long-time veteran Zdeno Chara remains unsigned. The team has definitely not improved over the course of the offseason, and in order to get something, something has to be given up. Right now, it looks like that something will be Vaakanainen.

The 21-year-old was the 17th pick in the 2017 NHL Draft, but he hasn’t seen much playing time in the NHL due to the Bruins being perennial contenders with a surplus of veterans. He has played in just 7 games over the past two seasons with the Bruins at the NHL level. Last year with the Providence Bruins (Boston’s AHL affiliate), he scored 14 points (5 goals, 9 assists) in 54 games. He is more of a stay-at-home defenseman, so he will never be expected to put up huge numbers.

In order for the Bruins to continue contending for the playoffs, they will have to make some kind of move to help their d-core. Haggerty thinks that the team will have to do something to please their fans.



“To simply re-sign restricted free agent winger Jake DeBrusk isn’t going to move the needle very much when it comes to fan expectations, and just adding Zdeno Chara to the mix on a one-year deal would give off the impression from the B’s front office that last season’s second round exit was good enough,” Haggerty wrote.

Expect the prospect to be moved before the season begins in order for the Bruins to find their piece to help bring them back to the postseason. The Bruins do have a little over $6.6 million in cap space, so it shouldn’t be terribly hard to find a deal.
