After having no selections on day one of the NHL Draft, the Bruins have made their second pick of day two. With their third-round selection, the 89th overall pick, the Boston Bruins welcome Trevor Kuntar to their organization. Kuntar spent this past season with Youngstown Phantoms of the United States Hockey League posting 28 goals and 25 assists in 44 games. Kuntar is listed as a center and was an assistant captain for his Junior club. Kuntar currently plays for Boston College making it easy for Bruins fans to keep a close eye on his development.

EliteProspects.com shares that at six feet tall and 202 pounds Kuntar has a stocky and strong frame that allows him to win battles and protect the puck. He is also known for a heavy and efficient shot. Steve Kournianos shares that the Williamsville, New York native has a wide variety of offensive tools include his shot, physicality, and ability to switch gears and angles while on the attack.

Kuntar is a little bit of a late bloomer having been passed over in his first year of draft eligibility. However, a strong year with the Phantoms put him on the draft radar. Scouting services and prognosticators including Corey Pronman of The Athletic projected Kuntar to be selected in the fourth round. The Bruins didn’t want to lose Kuntar, their second straight pick from the USHL, selecting him in the third round. The Bruins are likely to be patient with the 19-year-olds development and allow him time to blossom with the Boston College Eagles.
