3 Young Bruins Players to Keep an Eye on as Training Camp Kicks Off

As Labor Day fades into the rearview mirror, hockey season looms on the horizon. The Boston Bruins have hit the ice for captain's practices, with rookie camp and the official training camp set to kick off on September 20.

Recalling last season's training camp, some unexpected talents emerged, such as Jakub Lauko and AJ Greer. This year, with some roster uncertainties, opportunities are ripe for new faces to step up, akin to Pavel Zacha's breakout last season.

Here are three intriguing prospects to keep an eye on as we gear up for the 2023-24 season:

1. Trent Frederic:

Trent Frederic may not be in a battle for a roster spot like Lauko or Greer were, but he's a player worth watching. With a fresh contract and openings at center, he aims to expand his role. As a former center, he's eager to prove himself in that position and will compete with Morgan Geekie for the third-line center spot.

2. Fabian Lysell:

Fabian Lysell, a highly-touted prospect since the 2021 NHL Entry Level Draft, made his professional debut with the Providence Bruins last season, showing promise despite some injuries. His speed and skill set him apart, and he could inject a dynamic element into the team. In the competition for roster spots, Lysell has a chance to shine during camp.

3. Kevin Shattenkirk:

Kevin Shattenkirk's signing may not have generated much buzz, but it could prove shrewd. Some believe he has the potential to play a significant role this season, akin to Greer's surprise performance in 2022. With a vacant spot on the blue line following Connor Clifton's departure, Shattenkirk will battle prospects like Mason Lohrei for that position. Keep an eye on him; he might be one of camp's pleasant surprises.

As training camp unfolds, these players could leave their mark and impact the Bruins' lineup for the upcoming season. It's an exciting time for fans as they witness these prospects vying for their place on the roster.
