Erik Haula proves to be the best addition this offseason
Speaking of Erik Haula, the 30-year-old Finnish forward has looked impressive in the black and gold, centering the third line with DeBrusk and Nick Foligno.
Haula is a versatile, offensive player. He has played both center and left wing before. His production has bounced all over and part of the reason why Boston is his fifth team in the last five years.
It’s highly unlikely Haula recreates his 55-point season he did in 2017-18 with the Vegas Golden Knights, the only season Haula registered more than 40 points. At the very least, Haula should provide at least 30 points this season.
In order for him to be a big breakout star, a 40-point season would have to be in play for the forward. He’s done it before, can he do it again with his first season in Boston?
