Bruins’ Preseason Finale Serves as Final Audition for Young Defensemen Vying for Roster Spot (Video)

After defeating the Jets in Winnipeg on Thursday, the Bruins now have just one final tune-up before they host Tampa Bay in next Thursday’s season opener.

The majority of the team’s regular-seasons roster has already been set in stone, but a few players remain on the bubble. One such player is second-year defenseman Dougie Hamilton, who is fighting to stand out among Boston’s crew of talented young blueliners.

Hamilton’s last chance to prove himself before opening night will come Friday, when the B’s and Jets take the ice in Saskatoon.

To see highlights from Thursday’s win and hear from Hamilton, Claude Julien and Zdeno Chara, check out the video above.
