In the 2015 draft, a month after coming in with the Boston Bruins, General Manager Dan Sweeney tried for the big thing by getting two extra options in the first round.
The new GM includes first-round picks 13, 14 and 15, after sending Milan Lusic and defenseman Dougie Hamilton to various skies – Los Angeles and Calgary, respectively.
With those valuable choices, Sweeney took his scenes forward on fullback Jacob Zoboril, as well as Jake Debrask and Zachary Sennheiser. Since then, his decisions have been ridiculed because some of the three skaters do not have the careers of some players, including Matthew Barzal (16th), Kyle Connor (17th) and Thomas Chabot (18th).
After the 2015 draft, the general manager wanted to make excuses for his choices.
“We tried to move forward on this draft, but we could not do it,” Sweeney told the Boston Globe newspaper, adding that he would like to select a defenseman in the first round.
Nearly six years later, Zoboril, Debrask and Senishin finally played their first game simultaneously in Bruins uniform. On Thursday night, they beat the New York Rangers 4-0.
In 2020-2021, Zoboril and Debrask will play daily with the Massachusetts club. However, Senishin played his first meeting with the Bears of this campaign against the “blueshirts”.
The winger is fourth on the team after being recalled from the Providence Bruins in the American League. The Ottawa native, who has been playing among professionals since the playoffs of the 2016-2017 campaign, now has seven games of experience in the National Hockey League (NHL). There he had one goal and two assists for three points.
For his part, Joboril is currently playing his first full season on the Betman circuit. In 24 NHL games, he provided four assists and maintained a +1 rating.
Finally, Debrask is the best skater to get with these three options of the first round. In 221 games in the best hockey leagues in the world, the 24-year-old has hit the target 64 times and had 62 assists for 126 points. The man, who left last Tuesday night, has fewer points than the seven players who heard his name at the 2015 auction.
