Prospect Report: Button
BostonBruins.com -- On Tuesday, March 29, the Providence Bruins signed prospect Ryan Button to an amateur tryout agreement with Providence, and with just one game under his P-Bruins belt, Button is already beginning to feel comfortable in his professional surroundings.

“I thought I played quite well for playing my first pro game,” Button said. “It was an incredibly special experience, I was quite nervous going into the game.”

The journey to Providence began when Button made his Western Hockey League debut with the Prince Albert Raiders in the 2007-08 season. He went on to play four seasons with the Raiders before being traded to the Seattle Thunderbirds mid-way through the 2010-11 WHL campaign.
In 256 WHL games, the 20-year-old lefty defenseman collected 16-97-113 scoring totals.

Drafted in the third round (86th overall) by the Bruins in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, the 6-foot-1, 193-pound native of Edmonton, AB, was admittedly hoping to be picked be his hometown Oilers, but was thrilled to be chosen by Boston – his favorite team.

“It was incredibly special for me personally because my dad and basically all my family were huge Boston fans growing up. I've been a Boston fan basically ever since I've been alive. It's all my dad and I ever talked about,” Button said.

Since being drafted by Boston, Button has had the opportunity to participate in the Bruins' development camps and has worked to implement the advice the B‟s coaching staff has passed along to him.

“The coaching staff really stressed working on my defensive game because if I want to get to the next level that‟s what I really have to work on to get there,” Button said. “And then just a lot of little things…when to jump up in the play and when not to jump up in the play.”

Since his time in Bruins camps, Button has been able to implement the advice into his game.

“I thought I played well, I thought I played better in the defensive zone, which is what Boston really wanted me to focus on, what I wanted to focus on personally,” Button said of his performance this season.
