2015 NHL Draft: Boston Bruins In Dire Need Of Speed, Scoring (Podcast)

The Boston Bruins have a few specific needs heading into the 2015 NHL Draft, but having the No. 14 pick often means having to simply settle for the best available player.

Fortunately for the Bruins, they might be able to do both.

A couple of USHL standouts in Kyle Connor and Colin White could provide the speed and scoring the Bruins so sorely need if either is available when the Bruins’ first pick comes up June 26. While it’s not certain both players will still be on the board, the Bruins also have the No. 7 pick in Round 2, giving them two chances to draft a real quality player to replenish a farm system lacking in depth.

NESN.com Bruins beat writer Nicholas Goss welcomed Kirk Luedeke of the New England Hockey Journal to discuss which players the Bruins could target with their first two picks, among other draft topics, on this week’s podcast.
