Boston Bruins Cut Senyshyn and Lauzon From Camp


Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

The Boston Bruins have apparently seen enough of two of their higher draft picks from the 2015 draft as they have been cut from training camp. The Boston Bruins announced on Thursday that 2015 first round pick Zachary Senyshyn and second round pick Jeremy Lauzon have both been returned to their junior clubs.

  • Zachary Senyshyn, arguably the most controversial draft pick the Bruins made in 2015, will be returning to the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds of the OHL. Following a decent year with fourth line minutes, and being (although often overlooked) younger than just about every single one of his teammates, Senyshyn will look to log more meaningful minutes with a year of playing under his belt. When asked about playing in the preseason, Senyshyn was very honest: “I’m a little anxious,” he also said, “It’s a really exciting time, and I’m really excited to put on the jersey and get out there for the first time. It’s nerve-wracking but also really exciting at the same time.” Senyshyn made sure to mention the veterans that were giving him invaluable advice. “It’s a real credit to the older guys that they’ve made it comfortable for us, and the staff has created an environment where everybody is happy and excited to come back to everyday. It’s been an exciting experience, and I just try to take it all in.”

    Senyshyn will be looking to prove all of the naysayers wrong over the next few seasons building up to his eventual NHL regular season debut. Another high draft pick of the Bruins, 52nd overall draft pick Jeremy Lauzon, will also be trying his best to show that he has what it takes to be a legitimate NHL defenseman one day.

    With decent size, and a good offensive skill-set, Lauzon has all the makings of a top-four defenseman. He stands at 6-foot-2 and weighs 193 pounds, which he uses to his advantage when skating up the ice with the puck. His tough play and smooth skating coupled with his vision and scoring touch makes him a very good draft pick by the Bruins in the second round. Lauzon contributed in all situations with the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies of the QMJHL last season, and his 36 points ranked him 21st among defenseman in the QMJHL. While 21st doesn’t seem great, he did score 15 goals which ranked him third overall in the QMJHL among defenseman, and his 12 even strength goals were good enough for first in the league from a defender.

    Both players will play at least one more year in the CHL before getting another chance to prove that they deserve to play in the NHL. Neither was expected to make the roster, and having both gotten some preseason playing time and the experience of an NHL training camp under their belt, both will be better prepared next year when camp starts again.

    Other cuts from camp today include: Jesse Gabriel, Daniel Vladar, Colby Cave, Colton Hargrove, Andrew Cherniwchan, Max Everson, Matt Ginn, Max Iafrate, Eric Neiley, and Frankie Simonelli – The latter six will be reporting to the Providence Bruins training camp which opens on September 27th
