    Bruins Sign Karson Kuhlman - 2yr @ 750k

    Not much excitement I know, but the kid sounds like a quality bottom 3rd or 4th line player. He may have a chip on his shoulder for being passed over in both the 2014 & 2015 NHL drafts, which could be a good motivator. From the different scouting reports I've see, this is what they say:

    “He’s a very skilled, smart player, really good all-around player. … I liked his skills. He skates better low to the ice. I really liked his game.”

    -CHI Scout
    “He was a real, real, real good player for us as a freshman,” Sandelin said. “He’s smart and willing to do whatever it takes to win. I think the biggest thing is he plays the game the right way. When you play the game the right way, you develop trust in a coach and from that point on, when you have the trust, you can be put in a lot of other different situations.”

    -UMD Coach
    There really isn't much on the kid as he wasn't a highly touted prospects. In college he averaged 20 points a season (.48 P/GP) so I don't know that he'll be much of an offensive threat in the NHL (but who knows). For comparison, Krualy was a .60 P/GP player in college, Donato a 1.07 P/GP player in the the NCAA. Hey may find his game at the pro level (some just excel there).

    I imagine he'll get a chance to earn a spot at camp next year. Not sure he makes the club, but it at least keeps competition on the 4th line.

    Good depth signing. He was big in UMD winning the NCAA Championship. He had a good run for them. He's a typical player the Bruins seem to target. Even if he doesn't amount to much, it doesn't hurt in giving it a look.

    "Elite" is just another way to spell "Brad Marchand"
