Who are these guys?
Jake DeBrusk and Zach Senyshyn play in the WHL and Jeremy Lauzon plays in the QMJHL. They were all drafted in the first 2 rounds of the 2015 draft. DeBrusk and Senyshyn were part of the much-discussed first round run, taken 14th and 15th. Lauzon was taken 52nd overall. Two of them were named to their respective teams playing against the Russian Juniors this month, as well.
Terms haven't been leaked, but we'll let you know. Most ELCs are bonus-laden three year deals.
What does it mean for the Bruins?
Right now? Not a whole lot. They're all ineligible to play in the AHL until they're 20, and I would be shocked if they make the jump to Boston at any point. This is likely mostly just so that the Bruins can keep a closer eye on their training and development more than anything else.
