Boston Bruins Sign Brandon Carlo To Entry Level Contract


They say good things come to those who wait, but sometimes good things just come when you deserve them. That is the case for Bruins prospect Brandon Carlo who, according to the Boston Bruins website, has been signed by the Bruins to an entry-level contract. The 37th overall pick of the 2015 NHL Draft has been impressive ever since he has become a member of the organization.

  • With the Bruins drafting three first round players this year, less media attention has been focused on Carlo compared to what a second round pick player on another team might get. Despite that, the young defenseman has been able to get the attention of fans and staff alike during this training camp.

    In his second preseason exhibition, against the New York Rangers, Carlo netted the Bruins second goal of the night. “You know I almost didn’t believe it,” said Carlo of his first goal as a Boston Bruin, “kind of in shock there and then, as all of the guys came over, I was really excited and wanted to rush to the line and share it with everyone else. It was a lot of fun.”

    The goal was an important one as Boston was down 3-1 to the New York Rangers. With lots of chaos going on in front of Henrik Lundqvist, Carlo was able to find a hole and took the shot. That goal led to the Bruins eventually tying the game and winning via shootout. “We were down by two goals there, so coming back in that game was an unbelievable experience.”

    The win was extra special since the Bruins captain, Zdeno Chara, left the game early in the first period. “I thought all of the D really competed out there really hard. We never gave up obviously.” With the young defenseman able to prove that they could manage a tough New York team, that had Rick Nash and Henrik Lundqvist in the lineup, without the help of their captain, it was no surprise that someone got rewarded. Hopefully, for Carlo, this is the first of many contracts that he will sign with the Boston Bruins.
