Toronto Maple Leafs reportedly will have interest in two Boston Bruins impactful players

Another Boston Bruins season came to an end Friday night in a 2-1 Game 6 loss to the Florida Panthers in the second round of the 2024 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

With a season-ending loss always come change and that will be no different for the Black and Gold over the summer.

General Manager Don Sweeney will have a large amount of cap space available to him to build a roster for the 2024-25 season that will be better than the one that just surprised this past season with a second-place Atlantic Division finish and a first-round postseason victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Like Boston, Toronto will undergo some offseason changes and it already started with firing head coach Sheldon Keefe and hiring Craig Berube. Their roster will also undergo some change and they will reportedly have interest in a pair of Boston Bruins, according to The Fourth Period.

Jake DeBrusk

The first player they will likely have interest in if the Bruins don’t reach an agreement before free agency begins on July 1 is Jake DeBrusk. Why not? The 14th overall pick of the 2015 Entry Draft was arguably Boston’s best playoff performer with six goals and five assists while being consistent at even strength, on the power play and penalty kill. He still has hope of returning to Boston, but you have to think a deal likely would have already been done.
