Bruins’ Prospect Involved In Blockbuster OHL Trade

Boston Bruins’ 2021 third-round pick Brett Harrison has been having a terrific season in the Ontario Hockey League, and that torrid start has made the center a top asset. The Windsor Spitfires wanted Harrison badly enough to trade six draft picks to the Oshawa Generals in exchange for the 6-foot-3 forward Tuesday.

Harrison is currently playing his third season in the OHL and has posted 16 goals and 17 assists in 27 games. The Spitfires acquired Harrison and sent Oshawa a second-round pick in 2023, a second in 2024, third-round picks in 2024, 2025, and 2026, and a fifth-round pick in 2026. This a major haul for someone who is considered a top-five prospect in the Boston Bruins organization by many hockey insiders.

The native of Dorchester, Ontario, was drafted in the first round (16th overall) by the Oshawa Generals in the 2019 OHL Priority Selection. The Boston Bruins drafted Harrison in the third round (85th overall) in the 2021 NHL Entry Draft.

Harrison is in his fourth season in the OHL (one season not played due to covid). In his rookie year with the Generals, Harrison appeared in 58 games while recording 21 goals and 16 assists for 37 points. In his second season, Harrison played in 65 games and recorded career highs in goals with 27, assists with 34, and a total of 61 points en route to being drafted by the NHL’s Boston Bruins.

Harrison missed the Bruins’ rookie development camp this past summer with an injury. Harrison has registered 18 points in his last ten games and possesses an elite shot. The Spitfires, coached by former Bruin Marc Savard, are currently second in the West Division at 21-8-3-1 on the season. Oshawa has struggled to a 12-17-1-3 start and currently sits last in the East Division.
