Everything You Need To Know About Bruins’ First-Round Draft Pick John Beecher


June 21, 2019

The Boston Bruins selected center John Beecher with the 30th-overall pick in the first round of the 2019 NHL Draft on Friday night.

The 18-year-old is a product of the United States Development Team Program, which saw eight other prospects get selected in the first round, including Jack Hughes who, unsurprisingly, was drafted No. 1 overall by the New Jersey Devils.

Beecher didn’t put up eye-popping numbers, but he did win a bronze medal with Team USA at the 2019 U18 World Junior Championship. He scored three goals and had one assist in seven games throughout the tournament.

He also recorded 25 points (nine goals, 16 assists) and a plus-11 rating in 34 games during the 2017-18 season with the USNTDP, per a team-provided press release.

He’ll certainly be one to keep an eye on.
