Boston Bruins Rumor: Bruins Pursuing D-Man Marco Scandella

The Boston Bruins are in hot pursuit of a left-shot defenseman.

And according to a report, one of the players they are pursuing is Minnesota Wild defenseman Marco Scandella.

Scandella checks a lot of the boxes for what the Boston Bruins are looking for. He is a 27-year-old left shot defenseman who logs an average of 19:49 minutes per game.

What Boston is looking for is a left-shot player who is in their late twenties who can log a significant amount of minutes and several years left on a contract. Which Scandella fits.

He was exposed by the Wild alongside Matt Dumba and it took the Wild trading something to Vegas to avoid one of them being picked up by the Golden Knights.

With Scandella there are currently several teams interested in him with the Bruins just being one of those teams.

There are other left-shot options the Boston Bruins could pursue though. One of them is 25-year-old Nate Schmidt who was picked by Las Vegas in the expansion draft.

Schmidt was a member of the Washington Capitals and his career ATOI is 16:34, not as high as Scandella, but still an option that checks most of the boxes for Boston.

Bruins Injury Updates Have Begun

Today GM Don Sweeney has given an update on a few injured players.

Matt Beleskey who which is not a big deal since he might not even make the team is day-to-day with a foot contusion. This happened is the B’s last preseason game against the Montreal Canadiens

Jakub Forsbacka Karlsson is day-to-day as well with an upper-body injury that he received in the game against Detroit on September 19th. Hopefully, this is nothing because he was a kid that was slotted to make a roster spot.

Last is Torrey Krug who will be out for at least three weeks pending a re-evaluation at that time. He was hit in the jaw with the puck and suffered a non-displaced fracture. It occurred in the game against Detroit.

Also on another note, the team has sent Jack Studnicka and Kyle Keyser back to the OHL.

The biggest injury is with JFK, now some may say Krug but I think the B’s can find a replacement for him. McAvoy will most likely take over on the power play and maybe this opens the door for a guy like Rob O’Gara or Matt Grzelcyk. Other than these few hiccups Boston should be a fun team to watch this season. Especially if they stay as young as they have in camp and the preseason games.

Bruins Grab First Win Of The Preseason

Boston took on the Canadiens last night in Quebec City and came out with a victory. Last nights team was all about the kids. Unfortnitally the game was not aired on TV in Boston. the Bruins defeated Montreal 3-2.

From what I have read from people that saw the game is that the kids were very impressive. Tim Schaller, Anders Bjork, and Jesse Gabrielle were the goal scorers. As the whole, the team seems like they are in a good spot to be competitive this season. Especially with all of the prospects on the roster that are eyeing a spot in the big club.

The most impressive was last years NCAA Hobey Baker Finalist Anders Bjork. Bjork scored his first goal in a Bruins uniform last night. Also, the word on the street is that his chemistry with the team is growing. Look for him to grab a top-six spot on the roster heading into the season.

Here is Anders Bjork on his first goal in. A very hockey guy answer:
