Who drafted the Bruins in 2021? – .

Finally (long, long, long) last, the 2021 NHL Draft is on the books.

A whole bunch of prospects have new homes, and a whole bunch of teams have freshly stocked farming systems.

(Before we continue, kudos to Sky, who did a great job covering the draft profiles at selections today.)

The Bruins ended up making seven picks between Friday and Saturday, and while we’ve already covered each of them individually, consider this article to be a handy collection of everything related to the 2021 Draft – plus you can vote in the end !

How did the Bruins draft in 2021?

The B’s have chosen to spread the wealth around the position this year, writing:

  • Four forwards
  • Two defenders
  • A goalie

The B’s have also mixed things up globally, drafting three Swedes, three Americans and one Canadian (Chowder FB is going to be upset).

The B’s also selected a player bound for Boston College and another bound for Boston University; we were just a Husky and a Crimson away from a full Beanpot.

The Bruins’ 2021 draft picks

Tour 1, Pick 21 — Fabian Lysell, F

Lysell is easily the highlight of the B’s draft, which is fair considering he was their top pick.

Where will he play next season? Luleå HF of the Swedish Hockey League.

Round 3, Choice 85 – Brett Harrison, F

After playing with Oshawa in 2019-20, Harrison ended up going to play in Finland during the weird pandemic year of 2020-2021.

6 ′ 2 ″ At just 18, Harrison plans to be a pretty big body in a mid-position.

Where will he play next season? Oshawa, it seems – although it’s not very clear at this point.

Round 4, Pick 117 — Philip Svedebäck, G

Hey, you have to replenish the goalie position at some point, right?

While the B’s appear to be in line with the goalie right now, it’s important to have players in the pipeline.

After playing in Sweden, Svedebäck will be plying his trade in the United States this season.

Where will he play next season? Dubuque Fighting Saints de la USHL.

Round 5, Pick 149 — Oskar Jellvik, F

Read our article

The third Swede! Jellvik was a near points-per-game player in the Swedish Under-20 league last season, playing for youth team Djurgårdens IF.

Where will he play next season? Possibly Djurgårdens IF, although he mentioned the possibility of playing college hockey in the US as well.

Round 6, Pick 181 — Ryan Mast, D

Read our article

The favorite choice of the “Bruins Need Plus Size” crowd!

The mast is 6’4 ”, 190 pounds, and it just turned 18 in January. Basically he’s a big boy.

Where will he play next season? Probably back at the OHL’s Sarnia Sting.

Round 7, Choice 213 – André Gasseau, F

Read our article

Speaking of big boys, Gasseau is 6’4 ”, 203 pounds, and he wasn’t 18 until July 3. Another case of “basically he’s a big boy”.

Gasseau grew up outside of Los Angeles, which is cool. It is also a product of the USNTDP.

Where will he play next season? While the first reports had directed him to Boston College, it appears he will first spend a year with Fargo in the USHL.

How did he describe himself?

“Power forward both ways, trying to bring that great presence down the middle, carrying the puck and analyzing the play with and without the puck in the offensive zone, the defensive zone. I just try to do all the little things well.

Round 7, Pick 217 — Ty Gallagher, D

Read our article

A defenseman headed for BU to cancel the attacker headed for BC. Perfect!

Like Gasseau, Gallagher went through the USNTDP. Gallagher and Mast are also from Michigan.

Where will he play next season? Boston University.

How did he describe himself?

“I think the best way to describe myself is just a very versatile player. I can play for two and I can be counted on in any situation. Whether it’s a penalty kill, blocking shots, or playing on a top line, trying to create an offense and win a game, win a hockey game. I think I’m making a really good first pass and getting the puck out of the zone really well and I love creating an attack with our playmaking ability as well as locking it in the defensive zone. I would say I’m just a versatile defender who can play at any point in the game.

What did the Bruins think of their draft?

Hear it directly from Ryan Nadeau, Associate Director of Amateur Scouting!

“When we go into a draft you have… the ‘best available player’ type of thinking, especially at the start. And as the draft progressed, we were able to hit a bunch of points, for us. We went straight to excitement, high end attack and skill. We got a certain size in the middle with the second choice. We picked a goalie with the third choice. Then we came back to a bit more speed and attack with the next pick. And then a big, strong D-man after that. And then a large center that has come a long way. Played Shattuck, then went to the national program, he will go to Fargo next year, then BC. And to get Ty Gallagher, who is an active and involved advocate.

What did you think of the Bruins’ 2021 draft?

Have your say!

Obviously, we won’t really know how the B’s have been doing for a few years, but we can still judge.

For me, the B’s have added some high-end skills and a certain size, without really having a real premium choice.

They also didn’t seem to be reaching that much this year, which is a good thing.
