2015 NHL Mock Draft: Boston Bruins Pick Travis Konecny


The Team at FanSided once again are doing their annual NHL mock draft. As the editor of the Boston Bruins site here on FanSided, I’ve got the pleasure of picking the Black and Gold’s First Round Draft Pick.  I looked at what the Boston Bruins were going to need a year or two down the road, and who could best fill in a position sooner if necessary.

With the fourteenth pick, there was no way I was going to get my hands on a Jack Eichel or a Connor McDavid. Early favorites like Lawson Crouse also got snapped up. In case you didn’t see who my fellow editors chose in the previous thirteen selections, you can find it right here.

I was really hoping for Jeremy Roy. The Bruins will need more defensemen who can quickly work their way up through the system and be able to contribute in Boston. He had everything I would be looking for in a late-season bottom pair player for the B’s. Unfortunately, the team over at Blackout Dallas, the Dallas Stars site grabbed him.

  • Oh well, I had my next choice ready. I was going to go with Paul Bittner. He’s a 6’4″ monster who can play the kind of hockey that Cam Neely and Claude Julien want. Steady on offense, can play two-way hockey, and has no trouble with dropping the gloves. Another perfect choice for the Bruins. Then Rink Royalty, the Los Angeles Kings site grabbed him.

    Well, crud. OK, let’s move on to plan ‘B’ when it comes to offensive minded players. I wanted a player that Claude Julien could help mold into a three-zone, two-way player. I wanted someone who could please Don Sweeney and mollify Cam Neely. Someone who could play, someone who could shoot, and someone who could take a swing to get his team motivated.

    It didn’t take long to find that player. In fact, I had already wrote about him.  While he’s not the 6’6″ behemoth that would instinctively please Neely, he is as close as a total package player you’re going to find. So, on behalf of the Boston Bruins, Causeway Crowd selects from the Ottawa 67’s, Travis Konecny.

    He’s the kind of player that could find himself wearing an ‘A’ to Patrice Bergeron’s ‘C’ one day. He’s got a tremendous hockey IQ. He’s one of the fastest players in the OHL. He will absorb the B’s hockey history and knowledge and do his best not to besmirch it.  If the Bruins organization were looking for a thirty goal scorer and an outstanding leader, he’s it.

    This is someone who could find themselves with their number hanging in the TD Garden one day. He’s got that much potential, and it would be insane for the Bruins to pass him over.

    This means that Flame For Thought, the FanSided site covering the  Calgary Flames is now on the clock.
