The attention of Bruins general manager Don Sweeney now turns to the offseason with the team’s elimination from the playoffs. Along with free agent decisions, Boston’s front office has draft picks to make.

Scheduled for June 22-23 in Dallas, the 2018 NHL draft offers no flashy possibility for the Bruins, at least on the surface.

Since trading the team’s 2018 first-round pick to the Rangers in the deal for Rick Nash in February, Boston would have to swing a second deal to make a top-31 pick.

Here’s the Bruins’ remaining list of 2018 draft picks:

2nd-round pick

3rd-round pick*


4th-round pick

6th-round pick

7th-round pick

* This is a third-round pick acquired from the Panthers in the Frank Vatrano trade made in February

On top of the Nash trade, the Bruins also dealt their original third-round pick to the Rangers in a deal for Nick Holden. Additionally, the team’s 2018 fifth-round pick was conveyed to the Jets as a result of the Drew Stafford trade from 2017.
