2019 Fantasy Outlook
Selected No. 14 overall by the Bruins in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft after tallying 42 goals for WHL Swift Current in 2014-15, DeBrusk has quickly established himself as an ascending young winger for the Bruins. Though the 22-year-old endured some scoring slumps during the 2018-19 season, he still managed to light the lamp 27 times (while adding 15 helpers) in 68 games. DeBrusk's hard-driving style and willingness to shoot remain his strengths, and if he can add a little more consistency to his game, the 6-foot, 188-pounder can take his production (in both real and fantasy terms) to the next level. As it stands, he's destined to see plenty of top-six work this coming season, as well as second-unit power-play action. Read Past Outlooks

DeBrusk scored his first goal of the season in Saturday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Maple Leafs.
ANALYSIS
After eight games and 23 shots, DeBrusk finally got one past the keeper. The goal came late in the first period off a battle behind the net won by Charlie Coyle, who backhanded the pass out in front of the net for DeBrusk to direct in. Currently with a shooting percentage of 4.3%, the third-year winger should start hitting the back of the net soon. Last season he had 27 goals at a 17.3 SH%, and in his rookie season he scored 16 goals with an 11.2 SH%.

2015
DeBrusk, who the Bruins selected No. 14 overall in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, should be recovered from an AC joint sprain in his shoulder well before the start of training camp. As a rookie in 2017-18, he logged 16 goals and 43 points in 70 games, while displaying poise and potential that foreshadows improved numbers down the road. A hard-driving style and willingness to shoot are the 21-year-old's calling cards and he'll be in the mix to secure top-six work up front for the Bruins this coming season.
DeBrusk, whom the Bruins took 14th overall in the 2015 NHL Entry draft, overcame a slow start in 2016-17 to log 19 goals and 30 assists in 74 games for AHL Providence. Look for the 20-year-old to receive an opportunity to make the big club out of training camp; down the road, his willingness to shoot and well-rounded offensive game could eventually lead to top-six work with the B’s. In the short term, he'll battle for slotting with fellow forward prospects Anders Bjork, Jakob Forsbacka-Karlsson, Zach Senyshyn and Danton Heinen.
Selected No. 14 overall by the Bruins in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft after tallying 42 goals for WHL Swift Current in 2014-15, DeBrusk's production fell to 21 goals in 61 games last season, though a painful groin injury that he suffered back on November while blocking a shot impacted his season negatively. Now well past the issue, DeBrusk is back on the fast track after a strong development camp performance. Down the road, the youngster has the potential to blossom into a legit goal scorer as a pro, with his shot and quick release handy assets in that regard.
DeBrusk, who recorded 42 goals and added 39 assists in 72 games with WHL Swift Current in 2014-15, needs additional seasoning at the junior level before he mounts a real challenge to make the Bruins roster. Nevertheless, a particularly nifty shootout goal during the Bruins’ Development Camp this summer provided observers with a tangible reminder of why the B's invested a first-round pick into adding the sniper to their growing collection of young prospects.
