Per the Bruins’ press release, Frederic will join Providence on an ATO; this means his contract won’t kick in until the 2018-2019 season.
Frederic had 65 points in his 66-game Wisconsin career. The sophomore had 17G-15A-32PTS totals in his most recent season, while adding in five goals in seven games for the U.S.A. at the World Juniors.
Frederic was drafted late in the first round in 2016.
Welcome aboard, kid!
