Jack Ahcan becomes another Bruins NCAA free agent signing


Even as the NHL season remains on hold while the world deals with the Coronavirus pandemic, business is still going on.

For the second time in a week the Bruins landed a college free agent defenseman, this time signing former St. Could State four-year standout Jack Ahcan.

The 5-foot-8, 184-pound blueliner is cut from the Torey Krug mold and he had 25 points (seven goals, 18 assists) in 33 game this season. In 144 NCAA games, he had 103 points (21 goals, 82 assists). He was also a teammate of Charlie McAvoy on the 2017 U.S. World Junior Championship team that won gold.

The story was originally reported by Brad Elliott Schlossman of the Grand Forks Herald and was confirmed by WEEI.com before Ahcan made it official via Twitter. The Bruins have yet to officially acknowledge any of their signings since the start of the league shutdown.

Previously this month the Bruins signed free agent defenseman Nick Wolff out of the University of Minnesota-Duluth. The Bruins have made college free agency a major focus the past several seasons and over the years have landed Krug, Karson Kuhlman and others to sweeten their prospects pool. Adding college free agents this season became more important when the general manager Don Sweeney traded Boston’s first-round pick to Anaheim in the Ondrej Kase-David Backes swap before the NHL trade deadline.
