Team Canada has announced their World Junior Championship Selection camp and the Bruins will be represented by a 2015 second round draft pick. The two newest invites were Samuel Montembeault of the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada, and Boston Bruins’ prospect Jeremy Lauzon. One of the Bruins three second round draft picks from the 2015 NHL Draft, Jeremy Lauzon has been on an absolute tear so far in the QMJHL while playing for the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies. At only 18 years old, Lauzon is showing that he is one of the most offensively gifted defenders in the entire QMJHL with an impressive five goals and 29 assists for 34 points in just 26 games.

The Bruins drafted three defenseman in the 2015 NHL draft. Jakub Zboril was selected with the 13th overall draft pick, Brandon Carlo was selected with the 37th overall draft pick, but the most offensively gifted of the group was far-and-away Jeremy Lauzon. Selected with the 52nd overall draft pick, Lauzon showed during the 2014-15 season that he has an impressive scoring touch after he found the back of the net 15 times, which was good for third in the QMJHL among defenders.

  • 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 and he isn’t afraid to use his body 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. Even more impressive maybe was the fact that 12 of his 15 goals were scored at even strength, good for first in the QMJHL from a defenseman.

    Lauzon isn’t just an offensive player, however. While his offensive prowess is notable, his gritty play and hard hitting style give him the potential to be a typical Bruins player in a few years. Lauzon has stated in the past that he has aspirations of playing like Ryan McDonagh at the NHL level. “I love Ryan McDonagh‘s game. He’s got a good two-way game going, and I want to be like him in the NHL.” There isn’t much to dislike about Ryan McDonagh‘s game, and the Bruins would be lucky to develop Lauzon into the next version of the New York Rangers’ captain.
