Bruins Prospects Help BC to Big Weekend Over Rival BU

While the Boston Bruins have been dominating at the NHL level all season long, their prospects have been enjoying great seasons across all levels of hockey, especially in the NCAA.

This past weekend was no exception as two of Boston’s prospects suited up for the Boston College Eagles as they took on long-time rival Boston University Terriers as the top two teams in the NCAA squared off. It was a much-anticipated showdown with the Commonwealth Ave. rivals – the first time the two clubs met while ranked as the top two teams in the country.

Thanks to help from prospects Andre Gasseau and Oskar Jellvik, the Eagles won both matchups over the Terriers, clearing the way to take over the number one spot in the country.

The 2021 seventh-round pick Gasseau had the final dagger during Boston College’s 4-1 win on Friday night. The second-ranked Eagles took down the first-ranked Terriers to start the weekend. The 6-foot-4, 217-pound forward has eight goals and 11 assists through 23 games. His 19 points rank sixth on the club.

The Bruins’ other prospect who appeared over the weekend was 2021 fifth-round pick Oskar Jellvik, who added two assists in BC’s 4-3 win over BU on Saturday to complete the sweep. The 20-year-old has 11 goals and 23 points for the Eagles this season, ranking fourth and fifth on the club, respectively.

Both players are finding tremendous success this season as they constantly contribute to the best team in the NCAA. While they may have been later-round picks than some of their teammates, they are proving they belong on the ice and can make an impact playing with some of the best at their age level.

Seeing Gasseau and Jellvik succeed gives hope to Bruins fans and the organization that the farm system is not as bad as it once was or thought to be. The success of Bruins prospects has been a hot topic over recent years but has seemed to take a more positive tone of late, especially this season with the contribution of a handful of prospects at the NHL level.
