As the Bruins assess their roster, it's clear that bolstering forward depth is a priority. While the search for a top-six center continues, the team could also benefit from considering options to enhance their bottom-six.

Here are a few potential professional tryout contract (PTO) targets that might align well with their needs: Colin White, Paul Stastny, and Pius Suter.

At 26, Colin White, a native of Massachusetts, has experienced both highs and lows in the NHL. His production saw a noticeable dip in the 2022-23 season, recording eight goals and 15 points across 68 games with the Florida Panthers.

However, considering his 10 points in 24 games the previous season and a solid 41-point campaign in 2018-19, White stands out as a prime candidate for a potential bounce-back season.

Pius Suter, 27, presents another intriguing option for a PTO. His versatility as a player capable of occupying all three forward positions adds depth to his appeal. During the 2022-23 season, he recorded 14 goals and 24 points over 79 games with the Detroit Red Wings.

While his offensive output experienced a slight decline, Suter's defensive game made notable strides, elevating him to a reliable penalty-killer role.

In the pursuit of augmenting their lineup, exploring these PTO options could prove to be a strategic move for the Bruins. While each player brings a unique set of skills and potential, their collective contributions could play a pivotal role in shaping the team's success for the upcoming season.
