Is Dougie Hamilton the Elusive Puck-Moving Defenseman for the Bruins?

Dougie Hamilton (BILL GREENE/BOSTON GLOBE STAFF)

Dougie Hamilton is expected to finally join the team this season. After two stellar seasons in junior hockey, the Bruins will unleash one of the best defensemen prospects in the game this year. With an empty spot left by Joe Corvo, who had a lackluster season last year, Hamilton will be given every chance to play.

He is an offensive machine from the back end, and maybe, just maybe he is the puck-mover that the Bruins have been searching for.

He will more likely than not be paired with Zdeno Chara or Dennis Seidenberg, and both partners will give him a good chance to learn and thrive as a rookie.

Others Waiting in the Wings

Ryan Spooner and Jared Knight are the top two forward prospects challenging for an NHL spot. There might only be one available spot on the third line with Benoit Pouliot shipped out and Jordan Caron filling that spot. Caron likely will start the season with that spot, but Spooner and Knight will have a chance at training camp and during the AHL season to show that they are ready.
