Jake DeBrusk

I love Jake DeBrusk so much. I really do! I love his ebullient smile, his dependable play, and offensive output. It comes as no surprise to me that he’s proven to be one Don Sweeney’s shrewder picks as Bruins GM.

It’s taken him a little bit to fully acclimate to the NHL style of play, but once he did, he started to make an impact for the Bruins.

As one of the Bruins’ younger stars, DeBrusk has shown himself to put in above-average effort each night on the ice and has earned his spot on the roster the world over.

Coming off of quite the productive preseason, having scored four goals and one assist in three games, DeBrusk is clearly itching to get back into the NHL and take it for all it’s got. This is pretty good for us demoralized Bruins fans.

Morning rushes today had him on the second line with David Krejci and Karson Kuhlman, which I don’t hate. DeBrusk is a solid second-liner, and I feel he does well with Krejci.

I feel that given DeBrusk’s explosive preseason and general upward trend the last two years in the NHL, he’ll be an impact player not only tonight but for the rest of the reason, hockey gods willing.
