Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson is one of the players that will compete for the third-line center role with the Boston Bruins.
Riley Nash, who served as the Bruins third-line center last season, signed with Columbus during free agency. There are several players currently on the roster that will compete for the spot vacated by Nash, including Forsbacka Karlsson, Sean Kuraly, Chris Wagner, Trent Frederic and Jack Studnicka. "The third line center…could it be Sean Kuraly or could it be [Trent Frederic, Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson or Jack Studnicka] that we talked about?" said head coach Bruce Cassidy. "We’ve got a few other guys flying under the radar like [Martin] Bakos coming in from Europe that we don’t know that much about. Those are the internal competition situations that we have for us, and realistically I think we may have two spots to fill." Sep 8 - 9:40 AM
