The Bruins could look to take another offensive-defenseman with the 135th selection. Despite his small stature, at 5-foot-11 and only 132 pounds, Reunanen isn’t afraid to get physical. If he intends on playing the same style of game at the NHL level, he’ll need to get significantly bigger as durability could be a concern.

The Bruins weren’t scared off of selecting David Pastrnak with their first round selection in 2014, and they likely won’t be scared of selecting Reunanen due to his size with a fifth round pick.

"“Reunanen is an offensive minded defenceman who can carry the puck, dangle through traffic and set up his teammates. While he relies on his offensive skills, he is not a defensive liability. Poised and calm in his own end. Doesn’t shy away from physical play.” [Elite Prospects]"
