Boston Bruins‘ 4th round pick in the 2014 draft (#116 overall) Danton Heinen(43) is making a statement that he belongs on the big league roster full-time for his sophomore season.

He started the new campaign playing with the parent club and got a first assist in his 2017/2018 debut, then added two more helpers in his next outing but as top offense weapons started to heal was sent down to affiliate Providence Bruins.

The 6’1″ 185 lbs. forward took his demotion in stride and got to work with the farm team scoring a goal and seven assists in 4 AHL games with a +5 rating.

That was plenty enough to get the attention of the brass and he was summoned back up less than 10 days later.

In his first game back, the smart, stick handling pivot scored his first NHL goal, a short-hander and then added the game-winning tally in a 2-1 win.

That would be good enough to earn him top star of the game.

The 22-year old has basically won every scoring mark ever set out in front of him at one time or another and it’s come time to do it on the pro level and start making a difference.
