The Bruins acquired Pat Maroon before the deadline but the Bruins' new forward is still making his way back from injury and won't be skating for at least a few weeks.

Bruins Head Coach Jim Montgomery commented on his expectations for Maroon. He stated that Maroon is an offensive zone threat especially down low and also was incredible net-front presence where he makes a lot of plays happen.

"The thing I know about Pat Maroon is (he's) someone we can put in offensive zone faceoffs. He's gonna set picks. He's gonna get to the net front. He's gonna get behind the net. He has an uncanny ability to make plays from behind the net and down low."

Montgomery did add that he will not be making any final decisions on the 6'3 forward until he sees him play in a Bruins uniform. He says we won't know what we are getting from Maroon until he proves it on the ice and sees the chemistry he builds with his teammates.


"Maroon fits in the lineup, but he told reporters you have to see it on the ice and see the chemistry of the players who play well together."
