Geekie emerges as the Bruins' Top Breakout Candidate

With Patrice Bergeron's retirement officially announced and David Krejci expected to follow suit, the Boston Bruins face significant uncertainties down the middle.

As of now, Pavel Zacha and Charlie Coyle are projected to fill the top two center positions, but that might not be an ideal solution for a team with high playoff aspirations. However, this situation opens up opportunities for other players to step up and elevate their game. One player to keep a close eye on is Geekie.

Expected to slot in as the team's third-line center at the start of the season, Geekie's performance during training camp could lead to a larger role.


The 6-foot-3 forward showcased promise during limited minutes with the Seattle Kraken last year, registering nine goals, 28 points, and an impressive plus-14 rating in 69 games.

A change of scenery to Boston could potentially unlock his full potential.

Geekie's skillset puts him in an advantageous position to succeed with the Bruins, and it's exciting to see how he will make his mark on the team this upcoming campaign.

The prospect of a breakout season from the young center adds an extra layer of anticipation for Bruins fans eager to witness the evolution of their roster.
