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  draft on Saturday. The pick was the 97th overall choice choice and was acquired from the Carolina Hurricanes  in the Aaron Ward  deal. The Bruins first three picks were centers Tyler Seguin  (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 , 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.
