And so, a player leaves the Black and Gold, only to join the...Black...and Gold.

Hey, whatever works.

The Bruins have selected Defenseman Ryan Mast from the Sarnia Sting with their 6th rounder. Mast is an enormous, 6’4 and 190-pounder from Bloomfield, Michigan who actually had a pretty strong season with the Sting last year, only to watch his current season get completely eaten alive by the pandemic, which stinks quite a bit, because otherwise he might’ve been able to get more interest.

From Ashley Glover of Recruit Scouting:

...Mast has a very translatable style. Whilst he may not have a high point ceiling; his ability to transition the puck effectively and the one-on-one defensive play should continue to elevate as he matures and sees greater competition. Mast is a great natural athlete and hockey player, but foremost he is an intellect; something that is VERY apparent on the ice. Mast is one of the most dependable and responsible defenders in this class, he’s often tasked with big responsibilities and shows that he’s capable of problem solving and out-thinking his peers.

Welcome Ryan to the Black and Gold!
