Boston Bruins‘ 2009 3rd round pick (#86 overall) defenseman Ryan Button(6) has been a bit of a yo-yo in between their AHL and ECHL affiliates, Providence Bruins and Reading Royals in his rookie season.
It’s a bit of a surprised as we would have guessed him to be a steady blue liner for the P-Bruins but despite being up with the team now isn’t on their clear day list for the Calder Cup Playoffs. Not to say that he won’t be playing in games if they make it to the postseason though.
He hasn’t put up significant numbers on the score sheet in either leagues and is on the negative side of plus/minus but chances are he’ll figure out his game and use that still growing 21-year old 6′ 185 lbs. frame. He’s only in the first season of his 3-year entry level contract.
Maybe more hours in the gym and spend some time connecting that slapper from the point to the net. He should have a big shot from the point.
