A number of notable Boston Bruins players have donned the eight-spoked B uniform over the decades. Now, our NESN analysts will be able to build their best team.

NESN will be airing a Bruins Fantasy Draft on June 14 that will showcase Billy Jaffe, Dale Arnold, Andrew Raycroft, Barry Pederson, Jack Edwards and Andy Brickley partaking in a draft to build their fantasy team, with Adam Pellerin serving as the event’s host. With names ranging from Milt Schmidt to Zdeno Chara, it’s sure to be exciting.

Sixty-six out of the 97 players available will be selected over the course of the hour. Save for eight Wild Card players, all included in the draft pool either won a Stanley Cup, won an NHL award and/or appeared in an All-Star Game with the Bruins. Each team will consist of six forwards (two centers, two left wings and two right wings), four defensemen and one goalie.
