Warso's a Bruin (Someday, Maybe)

According to ESPN Boston yesterday, the Boston Bruins traded Vladimir Sobotka to the St. Louis Blues in order to acquire the rights to flashy rising junior defenseman at Boston University, David Warsofsky. Chiarelli specifically was quoted as saying that he'd like to leave the Terrier star in school for some more seasoning, he does really like the way he plays. Warso was originally a 4th-round pick in the 2008 draft (95th overall). I can't wait for the chance to keep seeing one of my favorite Terriers stay in the 617 as a pro. I think this is a great opportunity for Warsofsky, especially as a real local kid, and potentially an great low-risk, high-reward opportunity for the Bruins.

In more NHL draft news, another incoming freshman, Yassin Cisse, was drafted by the Atlanta Thrashers with the last pick in the 5th round. Hopefully he'll be a good complement to Charlie Coyle as well as other incoming and returning Terriers on the ice this season.
