After a record-breaking 135-point regular season, the Boston Bruins are gearing up for another exciting campaign, and NHL Fantasy has just released its point predictions for some of the team's standout players.

David Pastrnak, the 27-year-old right wing, is projected to notch 110 points this season. Coming off an impressive performance last year with 61 goals and 113 points, Pastrnak's production will be closely watched, especially with uncertainties surrounding the team following Patrice Bergeron's retirement and David Krejci's decision still pending.

Brad Marchand, the veteran left wing, is expected to see a 20-point increase, reaching 87 points, provided he stays healthy for the entire season. Despite a delayed start last year due to offseason hip surgery, Marchand maintained a point-per-game average with 67 points in 73 games.

On the defensive front, Charlie McAvoy is projected to see a 12-point boost, reaching 64 points this season. After starting late due to offseason shoulder surgery, McAvoy impressed with 52 points in 67 contests, and his role is set to expand following Bergeron's departure.

Hampus Lindholm, the Bruins defenseman, aims to replicate his standout season with another 50-point campaign. Last year, he achieved career highs across multiple categories, including points, assists, and power-play points.

In the goaltending department, Linus Ullmark, coming off a Vezina Trophy-winning season with a league-leading 1.89 goals-against average and .938 save percentage, is projected to secure 31 wins, nine fewer than his previous season.

Jeremy Swayman, the promising 24-year-old goalie, is expected to secure 26 wins after an impressive 24-win season. He recently inked a one-year, $3.475 million contract after earning 2023 William M. Jennings Trophy honors alongside Ullmark. The Bruins' goaltending duo will undoubtedly play a crucial role in the team's success as they strive for another remarkable campaign.
