RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Ryan Donato.
The 2014 second-round pick, who showed well at the Bruins' development camp this summer, will now look to establish himself at the NCAA level after a 2014-15 season in which he played for several teams, including the Omaha Lancers of the USHL. While the 19-year-old Donato is no immediate threat to crack the Bruins lineup, down the road he projects as a solid two-way player at the pro level, given his scoring instincts and hockey IQ.
Donato - the son of former Bruin Ted Donato - was selected by Boston with the 56th-overall pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. He’s a few years away from a shot with the big club though, with another season of high school hockey (at Dexter School in Brookline, Mass) or a stint with the Omaha Lancers of the United States Hockey League on tap for him in 2014-15.
