Those two players were Jack Achan, a small skill-type defenseman out of St. Cloud State and Nick Wolff, who is on the opposite end of the scale measuring in at 6’5″ and 229lbs. Safe to say the Bruins were looking to cover all bases by snapping up these two.
First and foremost, despite having a few strong depth options currently developing in Providence, it’s great to see that the Boston Bruins are continuing to invest in their future on defense.
It’s vital that they retain strength on the blue-line; while they do have young guys like Charlie McAvoy and Brandon Carlo, others like John Moore and Zdeno Chara can’t be relied upon forever and right now, there’s not even certainty that Torey Krug can or will be retained.
