Report: Two Bruins’ Prospects invited to the U.S. National Junior Evaluation Camp

For a prospect pool that was just ranked one of the worst in the NHL, the Bruins got some good news about two of their prospects. After completing successful freshmen seasons in the NCAA, two Bruins prospects will continue their development as they have been invited to the United States Hockey National Junior Evaluation Camp.

The prospects who got the call are Boston University defenseman Ty Gallagher and Providence College center Riley Duran.

They are two of 60 players invited to the selection camp, which will take place from July 24th to August 3rd at the USA Hockey Arena in Plymouth, Michigan.

Gallagher was drafted 217th overall in the seventh round of the 2021 NHL Entry Draft and just had an impressive development camp for the Bruins as he looked to make a name for himself and standout. The defenseman finished his 2021-22 season with five goals and 11 assists for 16 points in 33 games and led all Hockey East rookies with 44 blocked shots. He has also helped the Terriers win its 31st Beanpot Title at TD Garden back in February. The 19-year-old Gallagher is a solid player who studies Bruins’ top defenseman and fellow BU Terrier Charlie McAvoy as he looks to improve every year.

The 20-year-old 6’1″ and 174-pound center just finished his freshmen year at Providence College, where he was a two-time Hockey East Rookie of the Week. A native of Woburn, Massachusetts, the hometown kid was drafted 182nd overall in the sixth round of the 2020 NHL Entry Draft. In 38 games for the PC, Friars Duran recorded ten goals and nine assists for 19 points.
