3 centers the Boston Bruins are considering for the upcoming season

JUL 31, 2023   |   BY HUNTER BOWMAN
The Boston Bruins are embarking on a significant transition phase after the retirement of the legendary Patrice Bergeron, leaving a void in their center position for the first time in nearly two decades.

As they gear up for the upcoming season, the Bruins are actively eyeing potential candidates to fill the crucial number one center role. Let's take a closer look at three pivots they could be targeting:

Mark Scheifele, Winnipeg Jets:

Though rumors of Scheifele and Connor Hellebuyck being traded have simmered down, the Bruins are keeping a close eye on the situation.


They stand ready to make a move if Scheifele's camp fails to secure a long-term deal with the Jets. The allure of playing alongside stars like David Pastrnak and Brad Marchand might sway Scheifele to waive his 10-team no-trade clause for a fresh start in Boston.

Logan Couture, San Jose Sharks:

At 34 years old and with four seasons left on his $8 million deal, Couture presents an intriguing option for the Bruins. While some salary retention may be necessary, Couture's experience and scoring prowess from last season (27 goals and 67 points) could be a valuable addition.

His veteran presence and ability to perform in high-pressure situations make him a suitable fit for the Bruins.

Christian Dvorak, Montreal Canadiens:

Though rival trades are uncommon, the fit between Dvorak and the Bruins makes sense for both sides. While Dvorak is currently considered a solid third-line center, his potential for further development at 27 years old presents an exciting prospect.

A move to Boston might serve as the motivation he needs for an elevated role in the top-six. Dvorak's desire for a fresh start aligns perfectly with the Bruins' search for a new center.

As the Bruins navigate this pivotal transition, the hunt for a new number one center is one of their top priorities. These potential candidates could shape the team's future and define their success in the seasons to come.
