There is more to come for the second-round pick for the B’s, but for now, Poitras delivered a message to fans on the Bruins’ official Twitter account.
“Hey Bruins fans, Matt Poitras here. So, so excited to be drafted here in Montreal by the Bruins,” Poitras said in a video shared by the team. “Can’t wait to get started, and I can’t wait to get to Boston.”
The Black and Gold have desires for their future after falling short in the Stanley Cup playoffs this summer. The center position was an area of need the Bruins needed to address, and they certainly did that with Poitras and two others in this year’s draft.
