Boston Jr Bruins defenseman Michael Kim has officially been added to BC's roster and will join the team this week in Florida. The 6'0, 1995 birthdate out of Toronto was off to a great start for the Jr B's, recording 27 points in 28 games. Kim will wear #27 for the maroon and gold.
Many are wondering why BC is adding players (they will likely add one more Jr Bruin soon) this late in the season? It is highly unlikely that Brendan Silk returns this year, meaning the staff will have to keep Jeke at forward. If one of the top six defensemen were to go down, Kim would be the immediate replacement. Goaltender Chris Birdsall is out with an upper body injury so they have to find a backup goaltender, something they're in the process of doing but since no one has been added to the official roster, Blogger can't say anything.
Bringing in guys under these circumstances can't do any harm because it creates depth on the blue line. Once Kim gets some reps in practice and is able to adjust to the speed, he will be good to go. I still expect them to try and add one more defenseman for next season and possibly one more forward because of Bracco's open scholarship.
Congrats to Colin White on an outstanding game yesterday!
