The Boston Bruins Draft Trevor Kuntar in the Third Round of the 2020 NHL Draft

Trevor Kuntar was selected in the third round with the 89th overall pick in the 2020 NHL Draft by the Boston Bruins. The scout by Elite Prospects on Kuntar described the forward as a top-ten scorer in the USHL last season, wields a shot so heavy that he can beat goaltenders clean from just about anywhere in the offensive zone. Checking in at 6-feet-even, 203 pounds, Kuntar’s stocky frame allows him to hang in there on puck battles and leverage himself against the opposition when digging for loose pucks”.

After his junior season, the Bruins signed Kuntar to a two-year, entry-level contract worth $1.85 million on March 29, 2023. Kuntar has played one season with the Providence Bruins of the American Hockey League and scored 10 goals with 10 assists in 70 regular season games. Kuntar recorded one assist in four playoff games and will enter the 2024-25 season vying for an eventual spot on the Boston Bruins roster.
