The Boston Bruins are brimming with anticipation for the upcoming season, having achieved a record-breaking 135-point regular season. NHL Fantasy just unveiled their point predictions for some of the team's standout players, adding to the excitement.

At the forefront, the 27-year-old right wing, David Pastrnak, is projected to amass an impressive 110 points this season. After a stellar performance last year with 61 goals and 113 points, all eyes will be on Pastrnak, especially with the team navigating uncertainties surrounding Patrice Bergeron's retirement and David Krejci's unresolved situation.

Veteran left wing Brad Marchand, despite facing a delayed start last season due to offseason hip surgery, is set to soar with an anticipated 20-point increase, reaching 87 points if he maintains his health throughout the campaign. In the previous season, Marchand boasted a point-per-game average with 67 points in 73 games.

On the defensive end, Charlie McAvoy is expected to see a 12-point surge, landing at 64 points this season. McAvoy proved his mettle with 52 points in 67 contests, and with Bergeron's departure, his role is poised to expand even further.


Hampus Lindholm, the dynamic Bruins defenseman, looks to replicate his standout season with another impressive 50-point campaign. In the previous year, he achieved career highs in various categories, including points, assists, and power-play points.

The goaltending department boasts Linus Ullmark, fresh from a Vezina Trophy-winning season with a remarkable league-leading 1.89 goals-against average and .938 save percentage. He's projected to secure 31 wins, nine fewer than his last season but still a force to be reckoned with.

The promising 24-year-old goalie, Jeremy Swayman, is expected to secure 26 wins, building upon his impressive 24-win season. Recently awarded the 2023 William M. Jennings Trophy alongside Ullmark, Swayman's bright future is evident as he signed a one-year, $3.475 million contract.

As the Bruins embark on another remarkable campaign, the goaltending duo of Ullmark and Swayman will play a crucial role in shaping the team's success, captivating fans with thrilling performances on the ice.
