Ty Anderson: B's go heavy on Swedes and locals in NJ

When it comes to the drafting strategy of the Boston Bruins during the Peter Chiarelli era, it’s become the absolute norm for the Black-and-Gold to stick to what they know best in their backyard to the north, often drafting kids with roots to the Ontario Hockey League or Canada as a whole, but with just one pick in the first two rounds, the Bruins seemingly went out of their...
