At the start of the 2018-19 season, Boston Bruins fans wouldn’t have been too upset if Matt Grzelcyk had gotten injured, but Grzelcyk has proven to be a quality player.
Some were worried that the Boston Bruins peaked too early. Well, I guess there is no need to worry now that the team’s point streak has ended, but this wasn’t the most important thing that occurred on Sunday night.

Now some of you may not be worried. The Bruins have been playing great and Grzelcyk isn’t exactly the most important player on the team, but this season he has been a major piece.
Before Sunday night, Grzelcyk was one of the only players to not have been injured this season. He has played in 60 games and has 2 goals and 14 assists this season.
Grzelcyk has improved a lot in his 2nd season. He was relied upon a lot at the beginning of the year with all the injuries that occurred. We have seen Grzelcyk on the power play and he has been a leader on defense.
One of the main things that Grzelcyk has improved on is his consistency. We saw Grzelcyk make some serious mistakes in his first season. In 2018-19 Grzelcyk has been a quality defensemen who has been able to rack up some points as well.
