Dougie Hamilton has just two NHL games under his belt, but he’s already showing some of the tools that make him such a highly regarded prospect.
Hamilton, who played alongside Zdeno Chara during Monday’s game against the Jets, played well both offensively and defensively for the Bruins, who emerged victorious in a shootout. The rookie blueliner jumped up into the rush on a number of occasions, but he also threw his body around and understood when to get back on defense.
NESN’s Barry Pederson broke down Hamilton’s performance using the Amica Coverage Cam, and he thinks it’s only a matter of time before the 19-year-old becomes a key component in the Bruins’ power-play attack.
Check out Hamilton’s performance in the video above.
