Three Boston Bruins That Are Currently On The Hot Seat

Published December 27, 2023 at 0:00

At 32 games into the 2023-24 season, the Boston Bruins lead the Atlantic Division, surprising many after offseason changes and retirements. While goaltenders Swayman and Ullmark shine, disappointments emerge among certain players.

Hampus Lindholm

After excelling as the top defenseman last season, Lindholm struggles this season with minimal offensive contribution and concerns about overall play.

Matt Grzelcyk

Recovering from offseason surgery, Grzelcyk faces challenges in his 20 games, particularly in offensive contributions and puck movement. As a pending free agent, his future with the team is uncertain.

Kevin Shattenkirk

Despite being signed as a replacement, Shattenkirk's inconsistent performance and defensive struggles raise concerns. Coach Montgomery expects more from the veteran in all zones.

Heading into the New Year, the Bruins' success hinges on improvements from Lindholm, Grzelcyk, and Shattenkirk.
