Charlie McAvoy is the real deal

Bobby Orr? Ray Bourque? He’s bett…. okay, it’s REALLY early for that, my apologies.

However, McAvoy, who has drawn comparisons to Drew Doughty, proved he belongs in that category. He won crucial battles defensively but also knew when to jump up in the play and generate offense.

McAvoy, who made his NHL debut last night, finished second on the Bruins in time on ice by logging 24:11, showed his ability to run the blue line on the power play as he was inches away from picking up his first point when he set up David Pastrnak for a perfect one-timer that rung bar.

McAvoy stated in his postgame interview that he credits head coach Bruce Cassidy for allowing him to ‘play and learn through his mistakes.’ He also noted how great it was playing alongside veteran defenseman Kevan Miller, who made his job easier by talking to him a lot and allowing him to play his game.

He finished his interview with a  big smile stating, “I love playing hockey.”
