Trent Frederic Should NOT be a Bruins Regular this Season

Trent Frederic is an interesting piece in the Bruins organization. Frederic was a former first round pick of the B's during the 2016 NHL Draft. And some may argue that he has yet to live up to the high expectations placed on him when he was selected 29th overall. Frederic is a player that brings physicality into the Bruins lineup. But his physicality comes with other consequences. Penalties! Frederic is a player notorious for getting unnecessary penalties. Does his physical play outweigh his dumb penalties? Definitely not! Frederic was eighth on the team in hits and was fourth on the team in penalty minutes. This led to Frederic being benched and scratched in the midst of the season. One shift for Trent Frederic after the interference penalty. Benched. — Fluto Shinzawa (@FlutoShinzawa) May 5, 2022 Offensively, Frederic was not much better. In 60 games last season, he was only able to record eight goals and ten assists. For a former first-round pick, you'd definitely expect be

2022 NHL Draft Recap - Grading ALL First-Round Picks

The conclusion of the NHL Draft is the beginning of the journey for the top-ranked NHL prospects. Here is my grade of each NHL first-round draft pick: 1. Juraj Slafkovsky  - Montreal Canadiens (A) The Habs started off the NHL Entry Draft with a bold move. Montreal ended up drafting 6'4'' power-forward Juraj Slafkovsky rather than the predicted Shane Wright.   2. Simon Nemac  - New Jersey Devils (A-) Simon Nemac was ranked as the top defenceman coming into the 2022 NHL Entry Draft. The right-handed d-man is a mobile two-way defenceman. Nemac was ranked third among European skaters by NHL Central Scouting.   3. Logan Cooley  - Arizona Coyotes (A)  The University of Minnesota commit was second on his USHL team in points, with 27 goals and 48 assists. Due to his elusive skating and skill, Cooley has high-end offensive talent.   4. Shane Wright  - Seattle Kraken (A+) Shane Wright was the biggest fall on the NHL Draft board. Seattle picked up a capable first-line center

A Peek into the Secrets of Nick Moldenhauer Forward for the Toronto Maple Leafs

Nick Moldenhauer had the scariest draft year of any NHL prospect eligible for the 2022 NHL Entry Draft. However, the young forward overcame an unfortunate, scary circumstances and was ultimately drafted in the third round by the Toronto Maple Leafs. Moldenhauer was a 2004 hockey prospect hailing from the hockey hub of Mississauga, Ontario. The right-handed forward played his minor-hockey for the Toronto Titans organization of the GTHL. In his final season of minor hockey, Moldenhauer led his team in points and goals. He played in 63 games, scoring 45 goals and 77 assists. The Mississauga native was eventually drafted 20th overall by the Ottawa 67's during the 2020 OHL Entry Draft. Moldenhauer would not sign with the 67's and instead sign to play for the Chicago Steel of the USHL. Moldenhauer would play six USHL games during the 2020–21 season, scoring two assists. He would also suit up for three USHL playoff games, unfortunately without recording any points.  Moldenhauer would
