The Bruins defensive corp is in need of help this offseason, and scouts around the NHL think it may come in the form of top prospect Dougie Hamilton.
In a profile published by the Toronto Star, scouts referred to Hamilton as the "best defenseman outside the NHL."
"Hamilton's got a terrific future in Boston," saidDennis MacInnis, director of amateur scouting for International Scouting Service."Can you imagine him and Zdeno Chara on the point on the Bruins power play?
Hamilton figures to be in the discussion for an NHL roster spot this season, with Greg Zanon, Mike Mattau and Joe Corvo's contract expiring.
