The 2012 NHL Draft is set for June 22–23 at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh, PA. Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli hinted that the Bruins will use their 24th pick on a defenseman or goalie. “I think there’s a lot of defensemen. I’ve said that before but there’s a lot of good defensemen in this draft,” he said. “So we’re hoping – and if we don’t get a defenseman, we’ll be fine because there’s always good players – but we’re hoping that some will slip because of the number of defensemen.” Check here for 2012-13 Boston Bruins ticket options.
