Boston Bruins prospect Trent Frederic is settling in very nice in his first year of collegiate hockey with the NCAA’s University of Wisconsin Badger team. The native of St. Louis Missouri has eight points in six games (3-5-8) with the team located in Madison, Wisconsin.
The 6′-2″ 201-pound center was not the sexy pick from many top hockey analysts or fans alike when he was selected 29th in the first round of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. No matter where he was taken in his first year of eligibility, the 18-year-old has time top develop properly and could be a nice fit to the Bruins third line in the upcoming years.
Love it, Trent Frederic. Keep on rolling. In fact roll right over 90% of the hockey community that trashed you this summer! https://t.co/b14jeFr1qI
