The Boston Bruins announced today that the club has come to an agreement on a three-year entry-level contract with forward Jesse Gabrielle. The gritty 6′-0″ 205-pound Moosomin, Saskatchewan native was selected in the fourth round of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft and is currently playing in the WHL with the Prince George Cougars.


In 215 career WHL games, Gabrielle has 94-82-176 numbers with his best offensive season coming in the 2015-16 year where he netted 40-35-75 totals for his Cougars team. He has tremendous speed for a skilled winger and is an effective forechecker with his skating ability.  This season in 26 games with the 22-8-2 (Second in Western Conference) he’s contributed 19-12-31 totals.


It’s believed the 19-year-old winger will remain in the WHL until the end of the season and be eligible for the AHL Providence Bruins or the NHL Bruins next season. Gabrielle played three games for the Baby B’s at the tail end of the 2015-16 season but went pointless in that time.


About Mark Allred Jr

Long-time Boston Bruins fan and former beer league goaltender for over 30-years on the ice, Inline, and Dek-Hockey throughout New England. Retired and needed a hobby so writing about the B's talent in the lower levels of developmental hockey is my favorite topic and main focus. It's important to know about tomorrow's stars today in my opinion.
