The Bruins prospects trounced the Devils ' 9-3. New quota?

  • Danton Heinen notched three, and Jack Studnicka demonstrated his upside. The Bruins' future looks bright in the depth department. Boston Globe
  • Anders Bjork was a standout- all he needed was the fight for a Gordie Howe hat trick. CBS Sports
  • Cam Neely weighed in with his observations on Bjork, Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson, Jake DeBrusk, Jakub Zboril, and Zachary Senyshyn. The future looks bright. Boston Herald
  • As for Don Sweeney, he has a need- a need for speed. Boston Herald
  • Patrice Bergeron is expected to be 100% ready for the season, but will still be restricted at camp. CBS Sports
  • No longer the kid doing the agitating, Brad Marchand is aiming for the top. Bonus: a chat with Fluto Shinzawa (With video) NHL
  • Marchand also put in a good word for David Pastrnak- sign him already! WEEI
  • Pasta's people are talking to KHL teams, could he pull "a Sobotka" and bolt? MassLive
  • But hey, contract negotiations are only business, after all. Patriot Ledger

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • Size matters in the NHL, but nowhere near as much now that speed is at a premium. Sportsnet
  • Dave Gunnarsson of DaveArt has done it again- his helmet for Flyers prospect Alex Lyon riffs on a Pennywise the Clown theme, including his own clever cameo on It! BarDown
  • One small island, lots of hockey players- Prince Edward Island has plenty of connections to the NHL. Open Ice Hits
  • Survey says- NHLers polled believe the next expansion team will be in Quebec, and are resigned that a formal contract clause will be necessary to protect their options to play in the Olympics going forward. USA Today
