With their 1st round pick (30th overall) the B’s have taken John Beecher, good American Boy out of the USNTDP. Going to Michigan next year. He’s a big center (6’3, 209 pounds).
Looks like he’s got some pretty good wheels.
Beecher recorded 6 goals and 14 assists for 20 points in 27 games last season with the USNTDP. Arthur Kaliyev was available for the taking but Don Sweeney opted to go with the positional need at center. The Bruins do not have a 2nd rounder but apparently they’re trying to acquire one.
Welcome to Boston, Beecher.
