Even though the Boston Bruins' prospect pool is often considered one of the weakest in the NHL, several players have disproven critics.

In particular, forward Georgii Merkulov has been making waves with his impressive performance, putting him in contention for a prestigious award at the end of the season.


Leading the Way for AHL Rookies




Merkulov's recent scoring spree, which includes 5 goals and 3 assists in his last seven games, has put him at the top of the points list among AHL rookies, contributing to the Providence Bruins' first-place standing.


The undrafted forward is currently the team leader with 23 goals and 28 assists in 59 games, also leading all rookies in total points.

Is it possible that the 22-year-old will be called up to the NHL as early as this season?
