Don Sweeney addressing media; said Charlie McAvoy has decided to forego the rest of his college career & will be signing an ATO w/Providence— Boston Bruins (@NHLBruins) March 29, 2017
And that’s that!
Charlie McAvoy, Boston’s 1st round selection of the 2016 NHL draft will be assigned to Providence, practice with them over the rest of the week, and could play for the P-Bruins as early as Friday night against Albany!
This is the best possible option with the end of the NHL season coming up, and the rules of the NHL would have the Bruins possibly burning a year on his ETC if they brought him to the big club, as numerous media people have explained at this point.
Welcome Charlie! Welcome to the Boston Bruins organization!
