Bruins General Manager Don Sweeney announced on Tuesday afternoon that the B’s had come to terms on a three-year entry level contract for Pavel Shen with a cap hit of $809,167 per season. Shen most recently played for Salavat Yulayev Ufa of the KHL, appearing in 20 games and recording an assist. Shen also competed for Russia at the U-20 World Championships, posting three goals and one assist for four points in seven games.

Shen was drafted by the Bruins in the seventh round (212th overall) of the 2018 NHL Draft. Shen also appeared in the MHL, playing for Tolpar Ufa for five games and recording an assist. Shen recently had terminated the contract for that team, allowing him to sign in Boston for the next three years. Shen was in fact the leading goal scorer for Russia at the U-20 World Championships in Canada at the end of 2018.

The Ufa, Russia native is an interesting case as a ton of draft experts had him being taken much earlier than the seventh round. The exciting part is that Bruins fans may be able to see the 19-year-old much sooner than expected and get to see what he brings to the table. With any luck, Shen comes to North America and thrives and B’s fans get to see him more often and get more familiar with his game.
