The Boston Bruins have announced their complete roster for the team’s 2018 Development Camp, which begins Tuesday morning and runs through Friday afternoon at Warrior Ice Arena.
This year’s Development Camp roster features 29 players, including 16 forwards, 10 defensemen and three goaltenders. The roster includes 18 players within the Bruins organization and 11 players who will attend on an invite basis.
Forwards: Martin Bakos, Stephen Baylis (invited), Jack Becker, Henry Bowlby (invited), Mitchell Fossier (invited), Curtis Hall, Joona Koppanen, Karson Kuhlman, Philip Lagunov (invited), Jakub Lauko, Tom Marchin (invited), Cedric Pare, Pavel Shen, Oskar Steen, Jack Studnicka, Colin Theisen (invited).
Defensemen: Nick Albano (invited), Axel Andersson, Philip Beaulieu (invited), Victor Berglund, Daniel Bukac, Lucas Ekestahl-Jonsson (invited), Teemu Kivihalme (invited), Dustyn McFaul, Urho Vaakanainen, Nick Wolff (invited).
Goaltenders: Kyle Keyser, Jeremy Swayman, Dan Vladar
2017 draft pick Vaakanainen, fresh off signing his entry-level deal with the Bruins, is the lone first-round pick among that group. Vaakanainen, a left-shot defenseman that’s played against the top competition his country has to offer in three straight seasons, is coming over from Finland with legitimate hopes of cracking Boston’s opening night lineup.
Bakos, signed earlier this month, meanwhile, may be attending as the oldest player in development camp history, at 28. Spending all of last season with Liberec Bili Tygri HC of the Czech Hockey League, Bakos recorded 14 goals and 40 points in 52 games. He added two goals and three assists for five points in 10 postseason games. Bakos also represented Slovakia at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, with one goal and two points four contests.
The camp — which will likely be lead by B’s player development coach Jamie Langenbrunner and aided by other coaches, both from Boston and Providence depending on their own personal schedules — will begin Tuesday morning at 11 a.m.
The on-ice portion of camp continues with on-ice sessions at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.
All on-ice sessions are open to the public.
