So with Andrew Alberts officially suiting up with “The Enemy” (anyone else want to be there when Alberts is formally introduced to Scott Hartnell?) it’s time to take a moment and look at the newest member of the Bruins organization: The Conditional 2009 Fourth-Round Draft Pick.
Pick, or “Fourthie” to his friends, has been in the Flyers organization since the year 2009 was discovered. He enjoys playing ice hockey (reportedly), and conditionally looks forward to outplaying his counterpart, now wholly owned by the Minnesota Wild. When asked about “Fourthie,” Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli referred all questions to his blog on the Bruins website, which addressed the move with an enthusiastic “404-File Not Found.” Follow-up e-mails were not written, as it really wasn’t worth the hassle.
Other notable Bruins 4th Round Draft Picks:
C/W Vladimir Sobotka (2005)
LW Byron Bitz (2003)
C Trent Whitfield (1996)
C Joe Juneau (1988)
