A look at what the Bruins Prospects are up to
Freshman, Trent Frederic and Cameron Hughes are lighting it up for the Wisconsin Badgers. Frederic was a first-round pick for the Boston Bruins in the 2016 Draft.
Even after missing six games this season due to a hand injury, he is still among the top scorers on the team with 14 goals and 16 assists in only 22 games. This past weekend he had 2 goals in each of the Badgers games against Michigan. He had the teams first goal as well as the game winner to Bring Wisconsin to a 5-2 victory over the Wolverines

Then Saturday the badgers defeated Michigan 6-4. Frederic’s first goal of the game came just eight seconds into the first. He next came in the closing minutes of the first, this tied the game at 2-2.
“He reads it well,” Wisconsin coach Tony Granato told Madison.com. “He’s a brilliant hockey player as far as recognizing opportunities where a player’s vulnerable to turn the puck over.”
Over the past 6 games Trent Frederic has seven goals and five assists. His Teammate Cameron Hughes, had a goal and three assists over the weekend. Hughes has a 12-game point streak (5 goals, 11 assists). This is the longest streak for Wisconsin since 2011-2012, per the teams website.
Providence still making future stars
The Providence Bruins managed to take 2 out of three over the weekend.
The B’s were led by goaltender Zane McIntyre, who helped the team beat Hersey 4-3, and Wilkes Barre Scranton 3-2. Over the two games he faced 71 shots. McIntyre is now 13-0-1 with a 1.74 GAA and a .941 save percentage.
The P Bruins are currently in fourth place in the Eastern Conference.
Bjork Pots His 100th Point
Notre Dame’s Anders Bjork a 2014 fifth round pick for the Bruins has scored his 100th point.
Bjork had 2 goals in the Fighting Irish’ win on Friday. His 100th point came off of an assist from Friday. He now has 19 goals and 24 assists in only 31 games. Bjork’s 43 points put him ninth in the country.
Charlie McAvoy potted tow points in each of Boston University’s games versus the University of New Hampshire. He finished the weekend with one goal and three assists.
McAvoy’s teammate Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson “JFK” also lent a hand in the victories.
Donato’s Dominance Continues
Ryan Donato had a four assists night in Harvard’s game against Brown University Saturday.
His four assists made it so he is averaging one point-per-game. With 30 points (16 goals, 14 assists) in just 27 games.
Senyshyn Continues to Dazzle
The 19 year now has eight goals in his last seven games. He was a first round pick in 2015. Senyshyn has 26 goals in 48 games this season, I hope to see that he can translate this skill to the NHL soon.
