Bruins rookie Trent Frederic to play with hero David Backes 12 years after ...

But when Trent Frederic hits the ice with the Bruins for their clash with the Jets on Tuesday night, there will be an extra layer of excitement.

Now, two weeks away from his 21st birthday, Frederic will have to do his best to stay level-headed as he makes his NHL debut on a line with his favourite player.

Since then, Backes has played nearly 1000 regular season and playoff games for the Blues and Bruins while Frederic has developed into quite the player in his own regard.

He was selected by Boston in the first round of the 2016 draft before playing two successful seasons of point-per-game hockey with the University of Wisconsin.

After the 2017-18 season came to a close, Frederic made the jump to professional puck with the AHL’s Providence Bruins, Boston’s farm team, and has been a consistent contributor since.
