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.
