Bruins’ Top Prospect Shines In First Playoff Game

The Bruins knew they were getting a talented player when they selected Fabian Lysell 21st overall in last year’s draft, and he instantly became the Bruin’s top prospect. The one thing that has surprised many, though, is the rapid pace he is progressing, as he completely dominated his first season in the WHL for the Vancouver Giants.

Lysell was a key component in propelling the Giants to the playoffs this year, which officially kicked off last night. All season long, he showed off his high motor and offensive skill set as he showed his ability to find the back of the net and create offense for his teammates. For the 19-year-old, he finished the regular season with 22 goals and 40 assists for 62 points in 53 regular-season games.

Lysell continued his hot streak and dominance in his first WHL playoff game as he was all over the ice. It’s one thing to be able to create offense for yourself, but it’s another when you can create for others as you become more of a dangerous threat. The best in the league are those that score and facilitate, as we see with elite players like Connor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl, Johnny Gaudreau, Kirill Kaprizov, Brad Marchand, and countless others.

His ability to facilitate was on full display last night as Lysell contributed on every single goal his team scored in their 5-4 overtime game putting them up 1-0 in the series. His final assist on the game-winner brought his game total to an eye-popping five assists in his ever WHL playoff game. It is safe to say that his future in Beantown is extremely bright, and he has a legitimate chance at cracking the NHL roster next season.
