Fabian Lysell Is Tearing Up The AHL

Fabian Lysell got his first taste of AHL hockey this season with the Providence Bruins, and so far, the talented forward is living up to the hype.

After dominating the WHL with the Vancouver Giants in the 2021-22 season, Lysell has been doing more of that with the “Baby Bruins.” In 24 games so far this season, the right winger has eight goals and 13 assists.

The skill that Lysell possesses was perfectly illustrated in the Bruins latest win over Hartford. In overtime, the 19-year-old dangled his way through the Wolf Pack’s defense to set up Vinni Lettieri for the game-winning goal.

Prior to the start of this season, the right winger admitted that there was a new energy surrounding his play. No longer was he a young player in his first camp; this time, he had something to prove.

“Yeah, definitely,” Lysell said when asked if this preseason feels a little more important. “Last year was kind of the new experience and all that. Now this year, I’m looking forward to if I get the chance to play; I’m definitely going to try to contribute in the areas that I feel like I can. I’m going to be prepared for if that opportunity comes, and I’m definitely going to try to make things happen out there.”

There were concerns over Lysell’s play after a disappointing effort in the World Juniors, but the right winger has quickly put those suspicions to bed. Lysell is the brightest prospect Boston has in their pipeline, and the NHL will be calling his name soon. He has become more of a complete player and not just one that relies on flashiness and skill moves, as displayed above. Lysell knows how to find open space, maintain possession, and make smarter plays.

Luckily for Boston, they don’t need a spark. The Bruins are still the best team in the Eastern Conference and, barring injuries, have their preferred starting lineup.

But if Lysell continues to light the lamp, it will be hard to keep him down in the AHL. When the 2023-24 season arrives, it would be surprising if Lysell doesn’t etch himself a spot on Boston’s roster.
