Outside of Tyler Seguin, the Boston Bruins have not had much to show for their efforts at the draft table under General Manager Peter Chiarelli. Jordan Caron is the only other player drafted by Chiarelli with more than a dozen NHL games played, and even he has not cemented himself a place in Boston's lineup yet. However there is reason for optimism, defenseman Dougie Hamilton is one of the best prospects in the world and the Bruins have one of the deepest and most talented stable of goaltending prospects in the NHL.
The left side of Boston's prospect pool is comprised mostly of depth players, with Providence (AHL) currently developing several potential third line candidates. The one notable exception is the talented Max Sauve. The slick winger has elite skating and NHL quality hands, but he has a tall, slender build that has led to significant and repeated injuries. Sauve is currently skating on a line with center Ryan Spooner and the tandem has excellent chemistry. The key for Sauve this season and beyond will be consistent health.
