MONTREAL -- Without a second round pick, the Bruins selected Alberta native and defenseman prospect Ryan Button with the 86th overall selection in the third round. The 6-foot, 185-pound had a breakout season for Prince Albert of the WHL in 2008-09 and finished with 37 points in 70 games last season. An Oilers fan growing up, Button comes from an athletic family with his dad a triathlete and his cousin an Olympic-level swimmer for the Canadian National Team.
In the fourh round, the Bruins selected big left winger Lane MacDermid from the Windsor Spitfires. MacDermid has the bloodlines as the son of former NHLer Paul MacDermid and he has the size at 6-foot-3, 204-pounds. The lefty shooting MacDermid had 15 goals and 20 assists in 64 games for both the Owen Sound Attack and the Spitfires while splitting the season with both junior teams in 2008-09. MacDermid is known as something of a tough guy in junior circles, and is expected to fit right into the Big Bad Bruins style of hockey.
