This year was Eduards Tralmaks’ first complete season with the Providence Bruins. Tralmaks came to the Bruins as an undrafted college free agent. The Latvia native spent the previous four seasons playing at the University of Maine. In 119 games with the Black Bears, he potted 39 goals while dishing out 43 assists for 82 total points. After playing for UMaine in 2020-2021, the young Latvian got an eight-game cup of coffee with Providence, scoring two goals and dishing out two assists for four total points.
Coming into 2021-2022, Tralmaks was looking to build upon the eight games he played in 2020-2021. The young forward would begin the season in a state he knew well, Maine. The young Forward would play two games for the Maine Mariners of the ECHL, scoring four goals and dishing three assists for seven total points. Tralmaks would then get the call to Providence and stay there the remainder of the season.
Tralmaks’ season in Providence started slow. He registered just two goals and three assists for five total points in his first 15 games. Then, once the calendar changed from 2021 to 2022, it’s like a switch turned on in Tralmaks’ game. He would net seven goals while dishing out seven assists for 14 total points in his next 16 games. It was like he was a different player. Overall in 51 games with Providence, Tralmaks netted 14 goals while dishing out 13 assists for 27 total points.
It was an excellent rookie season for Eduards Tralmaks. He provided a spark for the offense while proving that he was a defensively responsible forward. The Bruins were so impressed with his season that they re-signed Tralmaks for the 2022-2023 season. One of the most important questions remaining for Tralmaks is where does he go from here? I would love to tell you that he has the potential to be a top-line scorer because of his UMaine ties, but in reality, his ceiling is probably a bottom-line forward.
Tralmaks will undoubtedly spend the 2022-2023 season with the Providence Bruins. There is a less than one percent chance we see Tralmaks in Boston next season. Something will have had to go wrong for that to happen. It saddens me to admit that there’s a high chance that we never see Tralmaks play a game in Boston. I enjoy not only the player, but I also love that he has ties to Maine. One thing is for sure, though, Tralmaks will be a fun player to watch in Providence. Hopefully, he can help propel the team to more goals scored this season. I hope everyone is enjoying their summer. Remember, the days getting hotter means we are one day closer to Bruins hockey being back. I cannot wait for the 2022-2023 season. Feel free to send me any comments or questions on Twitter.
