Boston Bruins had to wait a little to make their first choice of day 2 in NHL Draft, losing their second round pick in a deal to New Jersey Devils for Marcus Johansson.
But when the last phase of the third round rolled around, Bruin's left chose Quinn Olson with the 92nd overall election.
The 18-year-old showed some fine scoring skills last season with Okotoks Oilers from the Alberts Junior Hockey League, cut 20-46-66 in 54 matches. Calgary's native is committed to Minnesota-Duluth for college, which is Bruins forward-looking Karson Kuhlman, and is back-to-back NCAA tournament matches.
Olson is by no means a big child standing at 5 feet -10, 170 pounds. On the NHL Network broadcast of the draft, he made comparisons with the Colorado Avalanche winner Matt Calvert for playing style.
It was the second election of the Bruins draft, which took center John Beecher with the 30th overall election Friday night.
