Paul Rutherford-USA TODAY Sports

Charlie McAvoy was born on December 21, 1997, in Long Beach, New York. As a 14-year-old, McAvoy played for the Long Island Gulls U-14 team. The next season, the right-shot defenseman would play for the New Jersey Rockets of the Met Junior Hockey League and have a dominating year with 15 goals and 39 assists in 42 games while being named the league’s top offensive defenseman. McAvoy joined the United States National Team Development Program in 2013-14 and played for the U-17 National Team. The blue liner would participate in the World Junior Championships for the United States U-17 team and score one goal with two assists in the tournament while winning the Gold Medal. McAvoy had a productive season for the U-18 team the next year, winning gold again in the World Juniors before committing to play college hockey at Boston University.

In his first season with the Terriers, McAvoy made the All-Rookie Team with 25 points in 37 games as a freshman. Midseason, the stocky defenseman won a Bronze Medal with the U-20 National Team, and in 2016-17 would win a Gold and make the World Junior All-Star Team.

Charlie McAvoy Drafted 14th Overall by the Boston Bruins in the 2016 NHL Draft

The Boston Bruins selected McAvoy with the 14th pick in the first round of the 2016 NHL Draft. At the end of his sophomore season, the 6-foot, 210-pound defenseman would sign with the Bruins and join the Providence Bruins of the American Hockey League for four games, collecting two assists. Those are the only four games McAvoy would play in the AHL.

McAvoy’s NHL Debut To Today

Charlie McAvoy made his NHL debut in Game 1 of the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. The former Boston University standout finished out his debut with a team-high 29 shifts and 24:11 of time on ice, second on the team to Zdeno Chara’s 25:32 in a 2-1 victory over the Ottawa Senators in the 2017 postseason. The 19-year-old signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Boston Bruins on April 10, 2017, and two days later, he earned rave reviews in his National Hockey League debut. The positive vibes have continued, as McAvoy has quickly become a focal point of Boston’s franchise.

McAvoy has now played in 362 career NHL games with 39 goals and 182 assists to go with a plus-137 rating. On October 15, 2021, the Boston Bruins and McAvoy agreed to an eight-year, $76 million extension to keep the defenseman in Boston for a long time.
