Jamie Arniel scored on the back end of a give-and-go with Zach Hamill to lift the Boston Bruins rookie team over the Toronto Maple Leafs rookies, 6-5, in overtime in Kitchener, Ontario.

In their first game of the four-team rookie tournament, the Bruins rookies overcame a hat trick by Leafs prospect Christian Hanson. Rob Kwiet scored the tying goal for the Bruins.

Boston’s rookies are scheduled to practice tomorrow and then get back into game action Wednesday against Ottawa.
