Focused Ferlin
WILMINGTON, MA – The sixth annual Bruins Development Camp is stacked with athletes from an impressive list of academic institutions. Cornell University’s Brian Ferlin is no exception.

“Hockey-wise it’s probably not much different because we’re still working just as hard,” Ferlin said of the Ivy League school. “It’s just the academic side has a little more emphasis.”

In his first season with the Big Red, Ferlin was named ECAC and Ivy League Men’s Hockey Rookie of the Year. He tallied eight goals and 13 assists for a total of 21 points in 26 games, but an injury kept him sidelined from the playoffs. He credited his teammates for his regular season success.

“I played with a couple guys who were upperclassmen and kind of took me under their wing and helped me learn the system,” Ferlin said. “[I] gained some confidence early on… and that translated through the rest of the season.”

That confidence translated to the ice at Ristuccia Arena as well. The 20-year-old, who was drafted in the fourth round of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, said he felt more at ease preparing for camp the second time around.

“It’s nice not being my first year, and kind of knowing some of the guys and what to expect,” he said after the final practice. “So from that standpoint it was a lot of fun, but obviously hard work.”

Ferlin hopes that hard work will continue to pay off on the ice and in the classroom in the fall.

“As far as the Bruins go, we’ll just see what happens and I want to keep getting better each year,” he said. “[I want to] have a good season this year and do well academically.”

B’s Assistant General Manager Don Sweeney took notice of Ferlin’s success this year, and said the forward is progressing according to plan.

“Offensively, I think Brian’s game is pretty good,” Sweeney said. “He understands how to protect pucks really well, he’s built for the cycle game, and he’s got a good shot coming down the wing.

“Defensively I think he’s starting to understand how to apply the system-work, and sometimes just being in the right spot is as effective as trying to outwork somebody.”

With camp in his rearview mirror, the Jacksonville, Florida native is also looking forward to returning home.

“Probably working on my tan and hanging out at the beach,” Ferlin said of his plans. “So I’ll just be working out, and hanging out with friends and family.”
