David Pastrnak has an opportunity in front of him. It might be a bit of a longshot, but it’s an opportunity nonetheless. He’s looking forward to trying to make the most of that chance.
The Boston Bruins’ 2014 first-round just wrapped up his first development camp and is back in his native Czech Republic. When he returns to Boston later this summer, he’ll be given his chance to make the team.
The 18-year-old signed an entry-level contract earlier this week, and that means he’ll be in training camp. The Bruins have said there’s still a chance Pastrnak will make the team, an opportunity that will be the latest in a whirlwind time for the forward.
“Until this moment happened now, I’ve always just been dreaming of it,” he told the team’s website. “Now it’s come true, but my dreaming isn’t done. I have to still do more things for my dad and for my family.”
The Bruins do have openings up front. The club must plug the holes left by the departure of wingers Jarome Iginla and Shawn Thornto
