After taking forwards David Pastrnak [1] and Ryan Donato [2] in the first two rounds, the Bruins closed out their 2014 draft by picking two more forwards and a defenseman in the later rounds.

They used their fourth-round pick (116 overall) on center/winger Danton Heinen from the Surrey Eagles of the British Columbia Hockey League. Heinen was the Eagles’ captain and leading scorer. He finished the season with 29 goals and 33 assists in 57 games, good for 10th in the league in points. Heinen will head to the University of Denver this fall.

With their fifth-round pick (146 overall), the Bruins took winger Anders Bjork from the U.S. Under-18 Team. Bjork played on the team’s second line last season alongside Red Wings first-round pick Dylan Larkin and registered 21 goals and 20 assists in 61 games. The Mequon, Wisconsin, native is committed to play college hockey at Notre Dame [3].

In the seventh round (206 overall), the Bruins selected Swedish defenseman Emil Johansson. Johansson played for HV71′s under-20 team in Sweden last season, posting two goals and nine assists in 42 games. Johansson is the only non-forward the Bruins drafted this year.
