Cunningham in the fourth

Posted By DJ Bean On June 26, 2010 @ 2:43 pm In General | 2 Comments

After not having a pick in the third round, the Bruins selected 5-foot-10 Vancouver (WHL) forward Craig Cunningham with the seventh pick in the fourth round of the NHL [1] draft on Saturday. The pick was the 97th overall choice choice and was acquired from the Carolina Hurricanes [2] in the Aaron Ward [3] deal. The Bruins first three picks were centers Tyler Seguin [4] (second overall), Jared Knight (32), and Ryan Spooner (45).

Now 19, Cunningham played four years of junior hockey. After winning a Memorial Cup in his first year with the Giants [5], his production increased significantly each year. His point totals in his four years were five, 25, 50, and 97. He scored 37 goals this past season.

A left-handed shot, the 5-foot-10, 184-pound Cunningham played center in the WHL but is believed to be a left wing at the next level.
