Bruins Head Coach States Frederic Will Be Staying On The Wing

Montgomery has clarified that Trent Frederic won't be making a move to center, contrary to some expectations.

Instead, the plan is to continue utilizing Frederic in his current role on the right wing. Montgomery explains that this choice stems from recognizing that Frederic's playing style, which encompasses both offensive and defensive strengths, is most beneficial when he operates from the wing.

The team is placing its trust in Frederic to make meaningful contributions within the lower lines.

This decision also opens up the possibility for Morgan Geekie, a free agent signing, to potentially take up the third-line center position. Geekie, who averaged 10 minutes and 27 seconds per game with the Seattle Kraken last season, could find himself positioned right behind Zacha and Coyle.
