WATCH: Bruins prospect Lysell snipes shorthanded goal in tournament originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston
Boston Bruins top prospect Fabian Lysell is so exciting to watch with the puck on his stick, even on the penalty kill.
The 19-year-old right winger scored a nice shorthanded goal on a shot glove side.
Check it out in the video below:
Lysell is the most offensively skilled prospect in Boston’s prospect pool. He tallied 62 points (22 goals, 40 assists) in 53 games for the WHL’s Vancouver Giants last season.
The 2021 first-round draft pick is unlikely to return to the WHL in 2022-23. The most likely outcomes for Lysell to begin the upcoming season are making the Bruins’ roster or getting his first taste of AHL action with the Providence Bruins.
The Bruins are going to be without three key players to begin the season due to injuries — Brad Marchand, Matt Grzelcyk and Charlie McAvoy — and all of them provide valuable scoring production. In an effort to replace that offense, the Bruins should give Lysell a chance to prove himself at the NHL level early on.
