Hockey Prospectus is out with its ranking of all 30 NHL teams’ prospects.
And there’s good news for the Bruins.
HP prospects expert Corey Pronman ranks the Bruins seventh, while writing:
The last two drafts may help define Boston’s future core for many years to come as 2010 second-round picks Jared Knight and Ryan Spooner have looked terrific, and being able to get Alexander Khokhlachev with Dougie Hamilton in the 2011 draft was a complete theft. The Bruins have a very deep system and a fair amount of talent at both skater positions.
The Detroit Red Wings are ranked No. 1. Checking in at No. 30 is San Jose.
