BOSTON – NOVEMBER 15: Matt Hunwick /

Seventh Round- 224th Overall, Matt Hunwick

Finishing off our roundup of the Boston Bruins foray into the 2004 NHL Draft we have a familiar name. Matt Hunwick the Warren, Michigan native outside of David Krejci, Hunwick would play more games for the Bruins than the other three combined.

Totalling 46 points in 164 games Hunwick should promise as a defenseman who could offer some offence.

Hunwick would be traded prior to the Stanley Cup winning season. The Colorado Avalanche acquired Hunwick in return for Colby Cohen in an effort to reduce roster salary. It would seem that he has a curse when it comes to the Stanley Cup as during the off-season he signed a three year deal with the back-to-back champion Pittsburgh Penguins.

Matt Hunwick has scored 112 points in 508 NHL games.
