The Boston Bruins do not boast a large amount of prospects playing in Europe or college hockey, but there are some in the group that might be able to make a difference for the organization at some point in the near future.

The Boston Bruins came in to the 2008 NHL Entry Draft in Ottawa with more than they left with. Armed with seven draft choices, they ended up with six draftees and, to date, just two NHL games in the famed Boston Bruins sweater.

Outside of Tyler Seguin, the Boston Bruins have not had much to show for their efforts at the draft table under General Manager Peter Chiarelli. Jordan Caron is the only other player drafted by Chiarelli with more than a dozen NHL games played, and even he has not cemented himself a place in Boston's lineup yet. However there is reason for optimism, defenseman Dougie Hamilton is one of the best prospects in the world and the Bruins have one of the deepest and most talented stable of goaltending prospects in the NHL.
