BRIGHTON, Mass – It would appear things are finally coming to a head with Boston Bruins winger Jake DeBrusk after what’s become a frustrating last few years in Boston.
Hearing that BOS and Jake DeBrusk are working on the possibility of a fresh start for the player. Told nothing is imminent at this time, but something to keep an eye on.

Jake DeBrusk’s agent Rick Valette has confirmed that the Bruins and DeBrusk’s camp are working toward a trade that would give him a fresh start somewhere after disappointing play once again landed him in Bruce Cassidy’s doghouse over the weekend. Partner-in-crime Jimmy Murphy has been all over this for weeks wondering last week if the Bruins could potentially cook up a DeBrusk-for-Ryan Strome deal with the Rangers given New York had interest in the skilled left winger a couple of years ago.
One hockey source even wondered to Boston Hockey Now if the Boston Bruins would entertain dealing DeBrusk to the San Jose Sharks for the troubled, talented Evander Kane, but it’s highly doubtful the B’s would take on the problematic Kane even if a tough, productive power winger is exactly what the Boston Bruins need on the ice.
