Playing on a line with a player like the highly-touted Jack Hughes is sure to raise any young prospects stock, but what sets Boldy apart is that when taken off Hughes’ line, he still produces. Last season, while Hughes was playing an age up, Boldy still recorded 29 goals and 76 points through 61 games with the U.S National U17 Team. Even this season, he hasn’t always played with Hughes and is over a point-per-game.
Boldy already has the size of an NHL player, and has the resume to show that he can put up the points. With the national team and the USNTDP Juniors, he’s been over a point-per-game. In the U17 World Juniors in 2017-18, he collected nine points in just six games, helping Team USA to a gold medal.
