Trent Frederic des Bruins Explains Personal Development After Stellar Show


Boston Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy moved Trent Frederic into the third line to make the squad a little bigger.

And with the team needing a spark ahead of Game 2 of a mini-series with the Philadelphia Flyers, Frederic delivered just that. In the end, he helped Boston to a dominant 6-1 victory on Saturday at TD Garden.

Frederic contributed an assist on the stat sheet, but did more than that, shooting a pair of penalties to go along with it. Of the Bruins’ four power-play goals, two were from penalties shot by Frédéric.

With Frederic’s promising advantage as a penalty instigator and an apparent chemistry with teammates Charlie Coyle and Craig Smith, all signs point to the 22-year-old will soon become a fan favorite.

He certainly feels at home in Boston.

“They make you really feel part of the team,” Frédéric said of his teammates during his post-match media availability. “Obviously it’s starting at camp and spending all that time with these guys in the bubble. They get to know me and then get to know everyone, it’s really nice. They are my relatives now.

“Just like the experience you have with people, the more comfortable you are with them and that’s kind of where I am with this bunch of guys and all the guys who have been here as well. I have the impression that we are a very tight-knit group.
