2012 NHL Draft Results: Boston Bruins Go On Offensive In Later Rounds

The Boston Bruins selected four players in the final three rounds of the 2012 NHL Draft, highlighted by Seth Griffith in the fifth round.

The 5-foot-9 Griffith was chosen with pick No. 131 in the 5th round after playing with London of the OHL last season. Griffith is an offensive playmaker, scoring 45 goals and 40 assists for the Knights in just 68 games last season. He's an agile and quick skater and has the ability to play any of the three frontline positions. His size is an issue, but his offensive skill set should offset any of those worries this late in the draft.

Here is the full Bruins' 2012 NHL Draft selections:

Rnd Overall Player Pos Country Height Weight Amateur League Amateur Team
1 24 Malcolm Subban G CAN 6' 1" 195 OHL Belleville
3 85 Matthew Grzelcyk D USA 5' 9" 171 USHL USA U-18

NHL Draft Results 2012: Boston Bruins Select Hometown Boy Matthew Grzelcyk in Round 3

The Boston Bruins used their third round pick (No. 85 overall) in Saturday's 2012 NHL Draft to select defenseman Matthew Grzelcyk of Charlestown, MA.

The hometown boy, 18, registered two goals and 20 assists for 22 points over 56 games with the USA U-18 team of the USHL. He played for the USA U-17 team the previous year, notching one goal and nine assists for 10 points over 36 games. He is committed to Boston University.

The Bruins, who did not have a second round pick, selected goalie Malcolm Subban with the 24th overall pick in the first round. Subban, the brother of Montreal Canadiens defenseman P.K., is considered one of the most athletic prospects in the draft and played for the Belleville Bulls of the OHL last season.

2012 NHL Draft: Preview, TV Schedule For Rounds 2-7

The Boston Bruins look to continue building for the future as the 2012 NHL Draft continues on Saturday.

Rounds 2-7 start at 10 a.m. ET, and can be viewed on the NHL Network.

The Bruins used their first-round pick (No. 24 overall) to select Malcolm Subban, a 6-foot-1 goalie who played for the Belleville Bulls of the Ontario Hockey League last season. Subban was fourth in the OHL last season with a 2.50 goals-against average and tied for fifth with a .923 save percentage.

Subban could have to set aside some of his loyalties in order to fit in in Boston. He wears the number 30 in honor of his idol, New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist, and his older brother, P.K., plays for the Montreal Canadiens.

Tim Thomas Waives No-Trade Clause: Boston Bruins Now Free To Deal Star Goalie

Boston Bruins goalie Tim Thomas has indicated that his plans to sit out the 2012-2013 season are not to induce a trade.

But the two-time Vezina Trophy winner has waived his no-trade clause, general manager Peter Chiarelli told reporters on Friday, giving the Bruins freedom to deal Thomas before July 1 if they find a reasonable offer.

Chiarelli said that several teams have already called about acquiring the 38-year old goalie, who is due $3 million salary for the upcoming season. The Boston GM said most teams have been calling about the salary cap floor, which projects to be $54 million in the 2012-13 season. Even if Thomas sits out the year, his contract will still come with a $5 million cap hit.

2012 NHL Draft Rumors: Boston Bruins Could Acquire Additional Draft Pick, Says General Manager

The Boston Bruins have not ruled out acquiring another selection in Friday night's 2012 NHL Draft, general manager Peter Chiarelli said earlier this week.

The Bruins are slated to have five picks in this weekend's draft, since they traded their second- and fourth-round selections away. They also signed two free agents in the spring, defenseman Toney Krug and goalie Niklas Svedberg. But Chiarelli has thought about looking for more picks.

Via the Taunton Gazette:

"As a manager, you try to have your seven picks one way or another," general manager Peter Chiarelli said in a conference call Monday. "In my mind, that would give us seven, with Krug and Svedberg. But having said that, if I can acquire another pick, it would be nice."
