Barring a trade, the Bruins’ highest pick comes at No. 57 overall. However, the pick is nothing to scoff at. While it will take at least a few years for the pick to develop either way, there’s always the chance that they find an eventual frontline player in that spot.
Notable Second-Round Picks:
Patrice Bergeron (45th overall, 2003)
David Krejci (63rd overall, 2004)
Milan Lucic (50th overall, 2006)
