David Warsofsky(5) Providence Bruins

David Warsofsky

Boston Bruins‘ 3rd year defenseman David Warsofsky(5) is in the final campaign of his entry level contract, putting up career high point marks and has a +10 rating in the AHL with minor league affiliate Providence Bruins.

The mini-sized 5’9″ 170 lbs. blue liner is also on the short list of d-men recalled for action with the parent club. For his lack of physical presence out there, he plays a smart, minimum risk style with an offensive upside. He’s been summoned up 3 times to date this season.

In 6 NHL games he scored his first big league goal and added an assist.

He was originally a St. Louis Blues‘ 4th round pick in 2008 (#95 overall) and rights traded in 2010 and signed in 2011 in time to finish the regular season with the farm team.

The still super-young 23-year old, having played three seasons at Boston University and basically grew up skating the Massachusetts hockey route to a pro career.

He’s a restricted free agent at the end of 2013/2014 but it would be like zero surprise to see Boston offer him a 2-year extension.
