Boston Bruins prospect John Beecher commences training camp in a compelling and unconventional role


It's evident that the Boston Bruins are looking to infuse some fresh talent into their roster this season. This team has heavily leaned on its veteran players over the past decade. While they've successfully drafted and nurtured talents like Charlie McAvoy, David Pastrnak, and Jeremy Swayman, other top-tier teams have outperformed them in the drafting and development department. Additionally, young players offer the added benefit of being more cost-effective under the salary cap than experienced veterans. John Beecher emerges as a noteworthy prospect with a solid chance of earning a spot in the Opening Night lineup through an impressive training camp and preseason performance. The on-ice practices at camp kicked off on Thursday, and the 2019 first-round draft pick found himself skating alongside Milan Lucic and Jakub Lauko on the fourth line during the first session of the day.
