Boston Bruins
2018 Fantasy Outlook
DeBrusk, who the Bruins selected No. 14 overall in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, should be recovered from an AC joint sprain in his shoulder well before the start of training camp. As a rookie in 2017-18, he logged 16 goals and 43 points in 70 games, while displaying poise and potential that foreshadows improved numbers down the road. A hard-driving style and willingness to shoot are the 21-year-old's calling cards and he'll be in the mix to secure top-six work up front for the Bruins this coming season. Read Past Outlooks
Struggling to create offense
LWBoston Bruins
October 19, 2018
DeBrusk saw 3:26 of ice time on the power play in Thursday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Oilers, but he failed to add to his point total.
ANALYSIS
No one in the game saw more ice time on the man advantage, but the Bruins went 0-for-3 and DeBrusk only managed one shot on goal during the game. The Bruins need more production from the sophomore winger, who has only two goals and zero assists through seven games.

2015
DeBrusk, whom the Bruins took 14th overall in the 2015 NHL Entry draft, overcame a slow start in 2016-17 to log 19 goals and 30 assists in 74 games for AHL Providence. Look for the 20-year-old to receive an opportunity to make the big club out of training camp; down the road, his willingness to shoot and well-rounded offensive game could eventually lead to top-six work with the B’s. In the short term, he'll battle for slotting with fellow forward prospects Anders Bjork, Jakob Forsbacka-Karlsson, Zach Senyshyn and Danton Heinen.
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.
