NHL Draft 2011: Peter Chiarelli, Bruins Content With No. 9 Overall Pick

Boston Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli made his weekly appearance on 98.5 The Sports Hub's Toucher & Rich show on Wednesday, and was asked about his take on the 2011 NHL Draft.

The Bruins own the No. 9 overall pick in the first round, which they acquired from the Toronto Maple Leafs in the trade that sent Phil Kessel north of the border.

"We pick at nine and it's a deep draft. It's not top-heavy. There's not like two or three definite picks in the top three. We could wind up with a player that was ranked No. 1 at certain points of the year. There are three or four defensemen that will all be good NHL players that we're looking at. It'll be exciting because we're in a good spot where there's players that we want. We may try and move up but depending how it goes, a player that we don't expect that we're going to get may fall into our lap." (via The Bruins Blog)
