Jake DeBrusk (born October 17, 1996) is a Canadian professional ice hockey left winger. He is currently playing for the Boston Bruins in the National Hockey League (NHL). He was drafted 14th overall by the Bruins in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.[1]

Playing career[edit]

Amateur[edit]

DeBrusk was taken in the 7th round by the Swift Current Broncos at the 2011 WHL Bantam Draft. In 2015, he was selected for the CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game.[2] DeBrusk scored 81 points in 72 games with the Swift Current Broncos during the 2014–15 WHL season. On December 26, 2015, the Broncos traded DeBrusk to the Red Deer Rebels.[3] DeBrusk went to the 2016 Memorial Cup with the host Rebels, where they were eliminated by the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies in the semi-final match.

Professional[edit]

Ranked number 19 on the NHL Central Scouting Bureau's list of North American skaters eligible for the 2015 NHL Entry Draft,[4] DeBrusk was selected in the first round, 14th overall, by the Boston Bruins.[5] On November 12, 2015, while playing with Red Deer during the 2015–16 Western Hockey League season, DeBrusk signed a three-year entry-level contract with Boston[6] and was assigned to the Providence Bruins for the 2016–17 season.

DeBrusk's first-ever NHL goal occurred as the Bruins opened their 2017–18 regular season against the Nashville Predators on October 5, 2017. His goal was the second of four goals the Bruins scored in a 4–3 home-ice win over Nashville, with his father Louie DeBrusk and family in the stands at TD Garden to witness the event. He also assisted on another Bruins goal in the game, joining fellow Bruins rookie defenseman Charlie McAvoy in garnering two points each, in each skater's first regular-season NHL game.[7]

Personal life[edit]

DeBrusk is the son of former NHL player and current Hockey Night in Canada broadcaster Louie DeBrusk, who played 401 NHL games for the Edmonton Oilers, Tampa Bay Lightning, Phoenix Coyotes, and Chicago Blackhawks.
