RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Selected No. 14 overall by the Bruins in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft after tallying 42 goals for WHL Swift Current in 2014-15, DeBrusk's production fell to 21 goals in 61 games last season, though a painful groin injury that he suffered back on November while blocking a shot impacted his season negatively. Now well past the issue, DeBrusk is back on the fast track after a strong development camp performance. Down the road, the youngster has the potential to blossom into a legit goal scorer as a pro, with his shot and quick release handy assets in that regard.
DeBrusk, who recorded 42 goals and added 39 assists in 72 games with WHL Swift Current in 2014-15, needs additional seasoning at the junior level before he mounts a real challenge to make the Bruins roster. Nevertheless, a particularly nifty shootout goal during the Bruins’ Development Camp this summer provided observers with a tangible reminder of why the B's invested a first-round pick into adding the sniper to their growing collection of young prospects.
