The Bruins have bid farewell to Jeremy Lauzon.
Boston lost its defenseman Wednesday night when the Seattle Kraken selected Lauzon in the NHL expansion draft. While it may be the best-case scenario for the Bruins, it becomes another hole the B’s must fill on the blue line after Kevan Miller retired earlier this month.
Lauzon was drafted by the Bruins in the second round of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, and broke into the league on a more consistent basis last season. He certainly made his presence felt on the ice, and Boston made sure to wish him well shortly after the pick was made.
Seattle should be a good fit for Lauzon with former Providence Bruins coach Jay Leach leaving the AHL for an assistant coaching job with the Kraken.
