David Pastrnak has the potential for being the most explosive young forward for the Boston Bruins since Tyler Seguin. The eighteen year old winger got to prove his potential during his five game stint with the Boston Bruins earlier in the season. For the most part, the Bruins 2014 first round draft pick has lived up to the hype.

  • He spent the majority of his time on the wing of Patrice Bergeron. Bergeron is one of those players that can make anyone better, and the kid had enough talent to start with. While a lot of the fans (this one inclusive) thought his first game was wasted, the other four gave us a glimpse of what he will be for the B’s in the near future.  So far this season, Pastrnak has tallied twenty points (five goals) for Providence this season in the nineteen games he’s played this season.  He’s earned an assist and has put fourteen shots on goal for those five games he played wearing the spoked ‘B’.

    In two weeks, Pastrnak will be showing the world his potential. When the Bruins moved him back to Providence, it was with good reason. The Boston Bruins announced today that after the Providence Bruins game next Saturday, Pastrnak will join the Czech Republic national team for the World Juniors.  The Czech team will start the tournament off playing against Team Sweden the day after Christmas.

    The tournament will last until January 5th. So, both Bruins squads will be missing him on the ice. After the World Juniors, it’s all too likely that will see Pastrnak get another four games (perhaps more) for Boston. The Bruins have been looking for more dynamic power from their forwards, and the B’s may decide that Pastrnak may be ready this year to step up big time for the Bruins organization.
