The Boston Bruins on Friday night became the first NHL team in the modern era of the draft to make three consecutive picks in the first round.
Boston selected defenseman Jakub Zboril at No. 13, left winger Jake DeBrusk at No. 14 and right winger Zachary Senyshyn at No. 15.
Zboril tallied 33 points (13 goals, 20 assists) in 44 games for the Saint John Sea Dogs of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League this past season. DeBrusk posted 81 points (42 goals, 39 assists) in 72 games for the Swift Current Broncos of the Western Hockey League, and Senyshyn finished with 45 points (26 goals, 19 assists) in 66 games for the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds of the Ontario Hockey League.
The Bruins acquired the 13th pick and two players from the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for left winger Milan Lucic. Boston added the 15th pick, along with two second-round selections, from Calgary Flames in exchange for defenseman Dougie Hamilton. Both trades were made Friday.
