2. John Beecher
The Boston Bruins can get a lot out of John Beecher’s game if they’re smart.
John Beecher is someone that the Boston Bruins would love to see make some noise. They actually kept their first-round pick in 2019 which happened to be the year that they made it to the Stanley Cup Final.
They were defeated by the St. Louis Blues so it was the 30th overall pick that they retained and they used it on Beecher. Obviously, every team in the league needs their first-round picks to hit more often than not.
Beecher has taken a tad bit longer than some of the other players from his draft. He was a part of that amazing USNTDP group that had tons of players selected in the first round. Obviously, guys like Jack Hughes, Trevor Zegras, Cole Caufield, and Matt Boldy amongst others have become great players already and Beecher would like to follow.
The Bruins have seen a lot of good play from him so far this preseason and he deserves to be on this team. It is unclear if he’ll ever be a top-six caliber player but they could certainly use him in their bottom six. Hopefully, he makes the team and makes an impact.
