Future Watch: Jake DeBrusk Rookie Hockey Cards, Bruins – Jake DeBrusk was selected by the Boston Bruins with the 14th overall pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. He was sandwiched between the Bruins’ 13th overall pick, Jakub Zboril and Zach Senyshyn, also picked by the Bruins with the 15th pick. It’s not often that a team drafts three in a row and DeBrusk is the fastest developing of the trio.
Jake is the son of Louie; whose NHL rookie card dates back to the 1991-92 season. He had cards in Upper Deck, Parkhurst and Pinnacle sets. Jake learned how to be an NHLer thanks to his dad but he’s a more talented hockey player. Jake spent three seasons with the Swift Current Broncos of the WHL. His top year happened prior to the draft when he scored 42 goals and 81 points in 72 games. The next year he was traded to the Red Deer Rebels in-season. He finished out a strong campaign and added a nice 17-game playoff run getting 17 points for his effort.
Last season he turned pro. He played for the Providence Bruins in the American Hockey League. In 74 games, he had 19 goals and 49 points. In the playoffs, he had nine points in 17 games. These were solid pro numbers and that’s why he had a chance to make the Bruins roster out of training camp.
Here’s DeBrusk showing off his speed on a short-handed goal:
In his first 21 NHL games, he has five goals and 12 points. He’s already become one of the top five scorers on the team at the age of 21. He plays a 200-foot game and he’s smart and he’s a hard worker especially down low. This is why the Bruins love him, now collectors can become better acquainted with him too.
