As a rising prospect, John Farinacci shows he's got the skills for a bright future in the NHL as a two-way center, bringing both solid hockey sense and strong defensive abilities to the table.

He's quick to point out that he looks up to Patrice Bergeron's playing style, seeing it as an inspiration for his own game, even though he knows he's not exactly the same.
Even though Farinacci isn't trying to copy Bergeron's legacy, his recent signing with the Boston team is a step towards addressing the future after Bergeron. He's signed on with an entry-level contract and it's likely he'll start off with the Providence Bruins, a move that fits right into Boston's focus on grooming centers. He's aiming to show what he's made of during the training camp and preseason games.
Before making it to the NHL, players often spend time in the AHL, and Farinacci is no exception. Despite some uncertainties during his time with the Coyotes, Boston's offer ended up being the winner.
With Bergeron and Krejci no longer in the picture, there's room for new faces like Farinacci to make a name for themselves as centers in Boston's lineup. As important decisions loom, Farinacci's dedication to the Bruins is a clear result of his journey from college hockey to the big leagues.
