RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
McAvoy, who the Bruins took 14th overall in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft, says that he models his game after Drew Doughty of the Kings. With the B's having bid adieu to Johnny Boychuk and Dougie Hamilton over the past couple of years and blueline pillar Zdeno Chara 39 years old, McAvoy -- who turns 19 in December -- represents a key piece of the future on the B's back line. Though the team has some immediate needs on that front, McAvoy won't be rushed, though local Bruins fans will have an opportunity to do some advance scouting of the Long Beach, N.Y. native, given that he'll skate for Boston University this coming season. The 6-foot-1, 200 pounder is a good skater, with strong puck skills, traits that should lead to him assuming a top-four D-man role for the Bruins in time. In fact, he's already the team's top blue line prospect, given that 2015 first-rounder Jakub Zboril took a modest step back last season.
