BU Stars Jakob Forsbacka-Karlsson, Charlie McAvoy Excited For Bruins Future

The Boston Bruins don’t have to travel far to realize their future looks bright.

Two of the most promising players in Boston’s prospect pipeline are a pair of Boston University stars: 20-year-old forward Jakob Forsbacka-Karlsson and 19-year-old defenseman Charlie McAvoy.

Both players are excelling for the Terriers this season; Forsbacka-Karlsson entered Saturday with a team-high nine goals and 12 assists in 20 games, while McAvoy leads all BU defensemen with 11 assists to go along with three goals.

Forsbacka-Karlsson and McAvoy were special guests Saturday on “Bruins Face-Off Live” ahead of Boston’s matchup with the Philadelphia Flyers, and they discussed everything from being a part of Frozen Fenway to their thoughts of playing for the Bruins. Check it out in the video above.
