Bruins prospect making a name for himself

The Boston Bruins' prospect pool boasts a wealth of incredibly talented young players, offering a promising future for the team.

One shining example of this potential is evident in the Providence Bruins, who finished the season with an impressive 44-18-8 record, securing the top spot in the Atlantic Division and placing third league-wide. Unfortunately, they faced a similar fate to their NHL counterparts in the playoffs.

Now that both teams' seasons have come to a close, it's time to assess which players have the capability to make a significant impact and potentially earn a spot in the NHL lineup when the next season rolls around.

In a recent highlight from the Providence Bears' "Random Goal of The Week," centerman Oskar Steen took the spotlight with a remarkable wrist shot from the slot, showcasing his skill and finesse.

At 25 years old, Steen has displayed immense potential throughout his time with the Providence Bruins. Over the past two seasons, he has notched an impressive 29 goals and accumulated 66 points in 108 games played. These statistics speak volumes for the young center, especially considering he was drafted in the 6th round, 165th overall, in 2016.

Steen also had a brief opportunity to showcase his abilities with the Boston Bruins during the 2021-22 season, appearing in 20 games and contributing 2 goals, 4 assists, and 6 points. As he continues to develop, a breakout season could be just on the horizon for this talented player, bringing further excitement to both Steen and the Bruins organization.
