Breaking: The Boston Bruins are looking to add a forward as they return to the first round of the NHL Draft in 2024…

The Ottawa Senators gave the Boston Bruins their 25th pick back, which they used to choose forward Tyler Bertuzzi, putting the team back in the first round of the 2024 NHL Draft. In an attempt by the Bruins to bolster their limited pool of prospects, the draft pick plays a crucial role in the goalkeeper Linus Ullmark trade. If General Manager Don Sweeney decides to maintain the pick, Boston will select 25th on Friday. Here are five forwards who may be available when the Bruins turn to pick.

Five 2024 NHL Draft Targets at Forward For the Boston Bruins

Sacha Boisvert – Center, Muskegon Lumberjacks (USHL)

Boisvert can give the Bruins the offensive skills they need. The 6-foot-2, 183-pound centre, who is 20th in the Inside The Rink draft prospect rankings, has committed to play for North Dakota this season. The 18-year-old can score goals with an effective wrist shot. Inside the Rink gives Boisvert the following scout: “Boisvert is a goal scorer who does not favor any part of the ice. He can tear it off the blue line or sneak it in from one of the spots. He can take advantage of a split-second opportunity by using his stickhandling talents to outmaneuver the opponent. With his good stature and polished centre skills, he can ensure that the opposing team does not push him around.

Cole Beaudoin – Center, Barrie Colts (OHL)

At 6-foot-2 and 210 pounds, Beaudoin possesses a larger physique and is capable of wreaking havoc in front of the net. Inside The Rink has the 18-year-old ranked 32nd. Barrie has had a successful season, tallying 34 assists and 28 goals. He wins fights because of his size. This is Inside The Rink’s perspective: Beaudoin has a cunning shot release. He doesn’t give the goalie an opportunity to set up as he takes several shots in stride. His shot is not heavy, but it is accurate and fast, letting them go in different directions. With a tight delivery that comes off the rush, he gives the defence minimal time to readjust and respond. His goal totals jumped drastically from eight in 2022–2023 to twenty-eight in 2023–2024.

Jett Luchanko – Center, Guelph Storm (OHL)

Luchanko is a serious pro prospect with an excellent skill set and a high hockey IQ, and I really like him. The 17-year-old, who has a fantastic 74-point season, took Matt Poitras’ place at Guelph from Boston. The 5-foot-11, 183-pound forward has a high upside because of his youth. Inside the Rink’s assessment of their 34th-ranked prospect is as follows: In addition to his exceptional speed and playmaking skills, Luchanko exhibits a very high hockey IQ. He perceives and comprehends the game at a very high level and has amazing vision. In addition, he works really hard and has a great motor. This player has a great motor and is quite intelligent.

Dean Letourneau – Center, St. Andrew’s College (Prep)

Letourneau is undoubtedly a huge kid. With a height of 6 feet 7 inches and a weight of 209 pounds, the large forward possesses the skill to match his size. Being a bit of a project, the 18-year-old chose to attend prep school rather than play in the USHL. Letourneau can be a force in front of the net and has a strong shot. Letourneau’s potential will be enhanced by better skating. Dean Letourneau is ranked 37th in this year’s draft by Inside The Rink.
