A big defenseman! Interesting.

With nothing doing on the ice, the Bruins have elected to make off-ice moves instead. On Wednesday, it was reported by a player agency that the B’s have signed defenseman Nick Wolff out of the NCAA.

Wolff is a defenseman who played his college hockey at the University of Minnesota-Duluth, the same school as speedy Bruins forward Karson Kuhlman. His senior season just ended due to the COVID-19 shutdown, and he served as the Bulldogs’ captain in his last college campaign.

As you can see from this post’s header photo, he was also an alternate captain when the Bulldogs won the National Championship last year.

Wolff is 23 years old, and is a left-shot defenseman. He’s 6’ 5”, 229 lbs...that’s a big dude. The contract details, via PuckPedia: is he as a player?

Needless to say, if he can play this kind of game at the NHL level, he’ll have a lot of fans in Boston.

He may be a few years off, but it never hurts to have a prospect like this in the fold. He’ll likely be making his way to Providence if/when the season returns.

Welcome to Boston, Nick!
