Surprising Boston Bruins Player Surfaces As A Trade Candidate

Published January 29, 2024 at 10:56

Despite losing key players in the 2023 NHL Offseason, the Boston Bruins continue to dominate the NHL standings, positioning themselves as buyers for the upcoming 2024 NHL Trade Deadline. An article by The Athletic, authored by Fluto Shinzawa, explores potential trades for each team. For the Bruins, Shinzawa identifies rookie forward Johnny Beecher as a possible candidate.

Shinzawa notes the Bruins' caution in trading top prospects Mason Lohrei or Fabian Lysell, leaving Beecher, who started the season as the No. 4 center but was later assigned to the AHL. At 22, Beecher's size, speed, and reach make him an intriguing option for other teams, potentially valuing his offensive potential higher.

Beecher's NHL season showcased promise with five goals and seven points in 39 games, demonstrating reliability as a 4C before his AHL demotion. Since rejoining the Providence Bruins, he has contributed a goal in four games.

Considering the Bruins' limited prospect pool and draft picks, Beecher might become a valuable trade asset to bolster the team immediately. However, this move carries risk, as Beecher stands as one of the Bruins' top center prospects, a position of vulnerability for the club. The looming trade deadline adds suspense to whether Beecher becomes a key piece in the Bruins' strategic moves.
