The Boston Bruins selected forward Danton Heinen with the 116th pick (fourth round) of the 2014 NHL draft on Saturday.
Heinen is the third forward taken by the Bruins in this draft, proving that general manager Peter Chiarelli and his scouting staff were determined to add scoring depth and offensive skill to the team’s prospect pool.
Heinen, who turns 19 on July 5, tallied 62 points (29 goals, 33 assists) with eight PIM in 57 games as captain of the Surrey Eagles of the BCHL in 2013-14. He has good offensive instincts, displays an amazing work ethic and has proven to be a quality goal scorer at every level he’s played at.
The Langley, British Columbia native has committed to the University of Denver for the 2014-15 college hockey season.
Heinen will begin his college career at Denver in 2014-15. Served as BCHL's youngest captain last year for Surrey ^CS—
