Bruins select Center Brett Harrison 85th overall

New, comments

A big center from the OHL and also Finland!

After two hours of waiting, the Bruins finally had another pick!

With their third round pick, the Bruins took Center Brett Harrison from the Oshawa Generals, who played with KooVee in Mestis and also the SM-Sarja this year thanks to the pandemic. He was quite an interesting rookie for the OHL, as he was one of only three in the entire league to score over 20 goals that year, company he kept with Shane Wright.

From Tony Ferrari, a writer for Dobber Prospects:

Harrison is not a flashy player by instinct, but he is often able to use his skill on the puck to draw attention to him and create space for his teammates. That being said, he has shown significant improvement with his ability to assert himself offensively this year, which is a very positive sign in his development curve. Harrison’s defensive positioning and instincts generate turnovers, where he is then able to use his crisp passes to break out quickly.

Welcome Brett to the Boston Bruins!
