Future Watch: Charlie McAvoy Rookie Hockey Cards, Bruins – Charlie McAvoy was selected 14th overall by the Boston Bruins in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft. Many were surprised he fell to the Bruins and ever since then, they’ve been benefiting from the selection.
Leading up to his draft year, McAvoy starred for the National Team Development Program. As a member of Team USA, he had 40 points in 63 games. For a defenseman, those are very good numbers.
After the draft, he attended Boston University. In two seasons there, he had almost identical seasons with 25 and 26 points. He’s the kind of blueliner who will play almost every game and give you 100% effort and consistency on both sides of the puck.
Last winter the Long Beach, New York native starred at the 2017 U20 World Junior Championship. Wearing the “A” for Team USA he scored six points in seven games. His second period goal was huge. Canada was leading 2-0 at the time in the gold-medal game. Team USA ended up winning in a shootout. That was Team USA’s fourth title and he won Player of the Game honors.
Later that season, after playing just four games in the AHL with Providence, he made his NHL debut with the Bruins in the playoffs. He scored three points in six games as a rookie. Because of his limited play, he’s still eligible to win the Calder this season.
Charlie McAvoy has an NHL licensed rookie card in 2017-18 Upper Deck MVP Hockey. Having a chance to get an early card of this budding star is a great way to start off the new season.
Check out his Boston University highlights:
McAvoy has great speed and amazing hockey instincts. He’s already 6′-1″, 212 pounds at just 19 years old. His ceiling is very high and collectors should gobble up his cards. He’s a future all-star.
