Jake DeBrusk – LW
In the 2022-23 season, Jake DeBrusk had a solid season, especially especially considering he was limited to playing in 64 games due to a lower body injury he suffered during the Winter Classic.
According to NHL.com, in 64 games, DeBrusk had 27 goals, and 23 assists, giving him 50 points during the regular season. Sure, it was only 18 games short of a full 82 game season, something only three Bruins were able to attain in the season, but it was still on the lower end of games played.
One thing that was remarkable about DeBrusk’s season was that he sat at 30 points in just 30 games before his injury, and wound up with 20 points in his last 29, giving him an average of nearly a point per game, 0.78 points per game to be exact.
What this means that, despite playing less games than his career-high 77 the year before, he still had more points than the season before.
Watch for DeBrusk to improve on last year, and set career-highs in both categories.
