McAvoy just finished his first full season as a member of the NHL's Boston Bruins. In 63 games, he registered 32 points (7-25) and went on to add five points (1-4) in 12 playoff games. Before joining Boston in the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs, where he contributed three assists in six games, he played two seasons (2015-17) with Boston University.
