The Boston Bruins Select Christopher Pelosi in the Third Round of the 2023 NHL Draft

Pelosi was drafted by the Boston Bruins 92nd overall in the third round of the 2023 NHL Draft. The left-shot center was the 27th center taken in the draft. The scout on Pelosi by Elite Prospects included the following: “Pelosi is a nightmare around the net, combining shooting skill, hand-eye coordination, and overwhelming physicality. He wins body positioning to free his stick for chances as defenders desperately reach in. Even when there is a defender in his face, or he is off-balance, he still gets the shot off. And somehow, he is always the first guy to the loose puck or to apply pressure on the backcheck”.

The Bruins hope that Pelosi can develop into a pro-caliber center soon. The talented forward has participated in Bruins Development Camp the last two summers and will attend Quinnipiac University for the 2024-25 season.
