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.
