Rookie Matt Poitras stays with Bruins

Boston had until Tuesday to decide whether the 19-year-old rookie would remain with the NHL club past nine games — and kick in the first year of his entry-level contract — or return to the Ontario Hockey League’s Guelph Storm.

Bruins’ coach Jim Montgomery didn’t need long after Boston’s practice wrapped Tuesday to summarize Poitras’ status:Montgomery went on to say that Poitras might not remain with Boston all season. At this point though, the Bruins are impressed enough by Poitras’ early-season results to keep him in the mix.

Poitras — a second-round draft choice by Boston in 2022 — has collected three goals and five points in his nine-game stint with the Bruins. He’s provided much-needed center depth after Boston entered the season without retired veteran Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci. Poitras has been consistently slotting into a second-line spot but could be moved throughout the lineup as needed. headtopics.com

The Toronto-area native has won over his teammates in short order, too. Earlier this week, defenseman”I think that’s been the biggest thing is his confidence with the puck,” McAvoy told reporters.”We’ve played a lot of teams here to start that play a man-on-man style.

Boston is off to another strong start this season despite losing Bergeron, Krejci and Taylor Hall from last year’s lineup. The Bruins sit atop the Atlantic Division with an 8-0-1 record, good for second place overall in the league. headtopics.com
