Observations:

November 2016 - Sean Kuraly has been recalled to the Boston Bruins on emergency basis following an injury to Patrice Bergeron. Kuraly had a good showing in training camp and will likely see some action as a bottom line center. The Bruins normal lines will shift up to accomodate the introduction of Kuraly into the lineup.  -Mike Drover

 

October 2016 - Kuraly made his presence known in Bruins exhibition play with 12 hits and seven shots in four preseason matches. While Kuraly didn't manage any points in an average of 13:23 per match, he did show promise as a third or fourth line pivot. Kuraly will report to Providence of the AHL. -Mike Drover

 

June 2014 – The signs point to Kuraly going back to Miami University for another year. He is not ready for the NHL, but would do well in Worcester. However, Worcester isn’t in need of another center at this time so he will likely play better minutes if he stays for at least another year of NCAA play. His 2013-14 season was quite good. He scored timely goals and had some good moments. He needs to work on being more consistent with his play from game to game to be an effective NHL player, but will likely need wait at least two more years before he gets a chance. He has a strong build and has the ability to play mean, tough hockey. Tim Graveline

 

Fantasy Outlook: C-

Some upside. He just needs to work on his overall game to be effective, which even when he is at his best is most likely as a strong third-line center.
