Brett Harrison Drafted 85th Overall by the Boston Bruins in the 2021 NHL Draft

The Boston Bruins selected Brett Harrison in the third round with the 85th pick in the 2021 NHL Draft. Harrison was the 25th center chosen. The Elite Prospects Draft Guide described Harrison as a player that “hunts pockets of space and loves to trail behind the play to receive drop passes and fire from the top of the circle. He can win most battles through his reach and stature. He is physical and active around the slot, engaging with defenders to win positioning for loose pucks”.

During Harrison’s draft year, the 6-foot-3, 185-pound forward had a terrific season with Oshawa, scoring 27 goals and dishing out 34 assists in 65 games. The left-shot sniper attended Bruins Rookie Development Camp in 2022 but could not play due to a shoulder injury.
