Forward Lane MacDermid is hoping to punch his ticket to Boston from Providence.

The son of Paul MacDermid — the former NHL enforcer who spent nine seasons in Hartford — Lane enters his second professional season in the Boston Bruins organization after spending his rookie year in Providence. 

Last season, he chipped in with just two goals and three assists in 65 games, but the B’s aren’t looking for him to clog up those columns of the stat sheet. Like his father, the 21-year-old is a bruiser, and last year alone, he notched 155 penalty minutes. In six games this season, the 6-foot-3, 205-pounder has two assists and nine penalty minutes.

Listen below to hear P-Bruins assistant coach Bruce Cassidy discuss MacDermid’s season thus far and future in the B’s organization.
