Despite being a sixth round pick in 2010, Zane Gothberg has caught the attention of the Boston Bruins upper management as the University of North Dakota goaltender continues to impress.

Being a 5'9” defenseman is no easy task, but Boston Bruins prospect and Boston University defenseman Matt Grzelcyk is making a quick impression.

Despite not having a first round pick in the 2013 NHL Draft, the Boston Bruins had several late picks that could turn out to be steals when all is said and done. There were rumors that Tyler Seguin might be moved at the draft, however that trade came in the following days, when he was moved in package to the Dallas Stars as part of a blockbuster seven-player trade.

The 2013 season did not end the way the Boston Bruins would have liked, but the 2013 NHL Draft will give the organization the ability to add some needed depth to their prospect ranks. The Bruins however will not be able to draft until 60th overall, as Boston moved its first round pick to Dallas, in the Jamoir Jagr trade.

The Boston Bruins had several players step up and have big post-seasons, but none have made a greater impact than Torey Krug. With multiple injuries to the Boston Blue line, the Bruins called upon the likes of Dougie Hamilton, Matt Bartkowski, and Krug to fill the void. When Dennis Seidenberg and Andrew Ference returned however, Krug remained.
