The Boston Bruins have given a bit of a new life to one of their first round picks.
Jakub Zboril has found himself back in the lineup after Mike Reilly seems to be falling out of favour with head coach Bruce Cassidy.
It's been a long road for Zboril who was part of what some would argue was general manager Don Sweeney's worst draft class.
All three first round picks from the 2015 NHL Draft, Zboril, Jake DeBrusk and Zach Senyshyn, have been the target of heavy criticism from B's fans and Zboril admits it might have even messed up his development.
“I was just getting roasted every single day, so I got off social media. I deleted Instagram, I deleted Twitter…I feel that it’s really cleared up my head space. I’m more focused on what I should do and just not reading tweets about me.”
Zboril has played 47 NHL games to date and registered 10 assists.
The 24 year old played in both games of the B's back to back this past weekend against the New Jersey Devils and Montreal Canadiens where he registered an assist.
What do you think of Zboril's comments?
