Sports Hub Underground: Catching up on the Boston Bruins’ busy week
(Click here to subscribe to the Sports Hub Underground podcast.)
The Boston Bruins have been generating some legit headlines over the past week and change, most importantly with the signing of veteran winger Alex Chiasson. Bruins insider Ty Anderson and I discussed that and more in the hockey world in the newest episode of the Sports Hub Underground podcast, which you can listen to above.
Chiasson, a 6-foot-4 right-shot wing, recently joined the Bruins on a professional tryout agreement (PTO). Based on the history of such moves, he’s basically a coinflip to make the team out of training camp, let alone make a real impact. But the Bruins have ended up signing PTO players in the recent past (Anton Stralman, Lee Stempniak), and Chiasson would fill needs as a big right-shot forward and net-front presence on the power play.
Also on this week’s episode of the Sports Hub Underground: top Bruins prospect Fabian Lysell details his new goals for the season, a new extension in Tampa could be a good comp for Jake DeBrusk, and we draft our “Big 3” worst scams. Plus much more.
