Jack Eichel is interested in playing for the Boston Bruins

Eichel: ‘It would be cool’ to play for Bruins one day.

The North Chelmsford, Mass. native fueled speculation about potentially joining the Bruins during his recent interview with Boston 25 News’ Sara Underwood. Asked if he “could ever see himself in Boston,” Eichel entertained the idea.

“I think every kid grows up dreaming of playing for their hometown teams,” Eichel said. “Whether that happens now, later in my career … whenever, who knows, if it ever happens. It would be pretty cool, but who knows what’s gonna happen here in the next little bit.”

Eichel is the biggest name on the NHL trade rumor mill this summer. Last month, Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic reported trade talks involving Eichel were “getting more intense.” The 24-year-old has five years left on his deal with a $10 million annual cap hit.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: and let's talk some hockey!
