The Boston Bruins have selected Jake DeBrusk with the 14th overall pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.

One pick after taking a defenseman in Jakub Zboril, the Bruins took a left winger in Jake DeBrusk. This was much earlier than he was expected to go. He was slated to go in the bottom 10 of the draft in most mocks out there. However, the Bruins must have seen something they liked and took him and took him here.

In 72 games with the Swift Current Broncos of the WHL, scored 42 goals and amassed 81 points. His father, Louie DeBrusk, played 401 games in the NHL, spending time with the Edmonton Oilers, Tampa Bay Lightning, Phoenix Coyotes and Chicago Blackhawks.

Things are definitely changing in Boston with the big moves they made today.

The Bruins select again with the 15th pick in the first round. They have three picks in the second round thanks to the Dougie Hamilton trade. They select 75th in the third, 105th in the fourth, 135th in the fifth, 165th in the sixth and 195th in the seventh.
