The Boston Bruins traded Dougie Hamilton to the Calgary Flames for a first round pick and two second-round picks in the 2015 NHL Draft. The three picks Boston received are the 15th, 45th, and 52nd in what promises to be the deepest draft in over a decade. Read more»

The 2014-15 season saw the Boston Bruins miss the playoffs for the first time in eight years. The club’s subpar performance led to the dismissal of general manager Peter Chiarelli and consequently the installation of former Bruins defenseman Don Sweeney into the role. While head coach Claude Julien and his staff have been reassured that their jobs are safe, the Bruins are closer to a rebuild than they are to contending for a championship. Bruins fans and front office personnel alike can only hope that the upcoming draft provides an opportunity for retooling on the fly rather than starting completely from scratch. Read more»

The 2014-15 season is now a thing of the past and a boatload of drafted Swedes just finished off a full season of hockey, primarily with SHL clubs. The list of topflight talent dotting the Swedish hockey landscape is quite impressive and might have even been more so if William Nylander (TOR) and Swiss-born Kevin Fiala (NSH) had actually completed the season in the SHL.

The 2014-15 season in Sweden wrapped up a good month ago and was quickly followed by an exciting World Championship tournament that featured a Swedish team with a number of SHL, NLA, and KHL-based players – one that couldn’t get further than the quarterfinals, however. Read more»
