BOSTON — The Bruins locked up a sizable chunk of their 2015 draft class Thursday, signing forwards Jake DeBrusk and Zach Senyshyn and defenseman Jeremy Lauzon to entry-level contracts.
The three teenagers (DeBrusk is 19; Senyshyn and Lauzon 18) all have put up impressive numbers this season for their respective Canadian junior clubs.
DeBrusk, whom the Bruins selected 14th overall, has six goals and 14 assists in 14 games for the WHL’s Swift Current Broncos. Boston fans might remember him from the impressive display of shootout skills he put on during Bruins development camp:
Meanwhile, Senyshyn (15th) has 10 goals and four assists in 18 games for the OHL’s Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds, and Lauzon (52nd) has three and 22 in 18 contests for the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies of the QMJHL.
With the signings, five of the Bruins’ six first- and second-round picks now are under contract with the team. The one exception is Swedish forward Jakob Forsbacka-Karlsson (45th), who currently is playing at Boston University and cannot sign with an NHL team until he leaves school.
