Bruins dangling top prospect at trade deadline

Published February 24, 2024 at 2:51 PM

The trade deadline is less than two weeks away and general manager Don Sweeney along with his management team are scouring the league to find some upgrades to their roster.

One position that is in need of an upgrade is at centre and with the crop of centremen so thin across the league and the Bruins having no draft picks in the first three rounds of this draft and no second round next year, the team will need to be creative on how to accomplish their goals.

This leads to offering Bruins prospect right winger Fabian Lysell as a trade chip to any team willing to part with a centreman. Lysell Is well known for his incredible speed along with high skill and has the sense of physicality in his game. He was selected in the 2021 entry draft, first round, 21st overall.

He has played 47 games for Providence, scoring 14 goals with 27 assists for 41 points and is a + 9 and 35 penalty minutes. He would certainly give the Bruins more trade options as the team continues to evaluate their goaltending has several goalies could be lost to waivers.

But with a good supply of prospects, and the team in a win now position I feel that President Cam Neely and GM Sweeney will take another big swing at the deadline.
