History in the Making for Bruins Moller

June 20, 2007 - Western Hockey League (WHL) - Chilliwack Bruins News Release

Chilliwack BC - June 20, 2007:Chilliwack Bruins forward Oscar Moller could break another record for the Bruins this week at the NHL Entry Draft in Columbus, Ohio. Moller has the opportunity to be the highest drafted player from an expansion franchise in WHL history. The current player with this distinction is Tuomas Gronman of the Tacoma Rockets, who was drafted in the 2nd round, 29th overall, by the Quebec Nordique at the 1992 Entry Draft. The last player drafted from a first year club was Marian Havel of the Vancouver Giants, who was drafted in the 6th round, 179th overall, by the Washington Capitals.

Moller has already had a great first season in North America. The native of Spanga, Sweden led the Bruins with 32 goals this season, and also compiled 37 assists for 69 points in 68 games during the regular season. Moller also became the first Swedish born hockey player to be named MVP of the Home Hardware Top Prospects Game, held earlier this season in Quebec City.
