Bruins Sign 2020 Draft Pick to Entry-Level Contract

The Boston Bruins have been the best team in the NHL all season as they continue their historic pace. A large part of their success can be attributed to general manager Don Sweeney who is the team’s architect, as he has found ways to bring in veterans at the trade deadline to complement the team’s core they have had in place for over a decade.

Getting players into the pipeline is more important now than ever. The Bruins have several aging players and several free agents this offseason as they prepare for Beantown’s next wave of young talent. While Sweeney has maintained his focus on going all in this season, he has continued to build for this team’s future as he has stayed active on the undrafted college free agent market and the draft.

The Bruins announced today they have signed 2020 third-round pick Trevor Kuntar to a two-year entry-level contract beginning with the 2023-24 season with an annual NHL cap hit of $867,500.

The 21-year-old Kuntar appeared in 34 NCAA games with Boston College in 2022-23, recording 13 goals and 16 assists for 29 points. In three seasons at Boston College from 2020-23, the 6-foot, 195-pound forward totaled 28 goals and 31 assists for 59 points in 93 NCAA games.

Before enrolling at Boston College, Kuntar played for the Youngstown Phantoms of the USHL. In his final season with the Phantoms, he posted 28 goals and 25 assists for 53 points in 44 games.

The former 89th overall pick will now look to showcase his talents as he attempts to make a name for himself within the organization.
