April 2020 – Ahcan signed a two-year entry-level contract with the Bruins after his final college season was cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic. He had an exceptional four-year career at St. Cloud State, where he amassed 21 goals and 103 points, was named to the NCHC All-Rookie team, broke the team record for career assists by a defenseman, was named team captain in his senior season and played in 127 consecutive games from 2016-17 through 2019-2020. Ahcan is an offensive dynamo who excels in getting pucks on net from the point, but he can hold his own from a defensive standpoint as well (as evidenced by a career rating of plus-13 with the Huskies, including a remarkable plus-30 achievement in 2018-19). His easiest comparable would be Torey Krug, who followed a similar path as an undrafted collegiate free agent. Like Krug, Ahcan will likely spend all of his first pro-season in the AHL as he looks to prove he holds true NHL potential. Chris Mazza
