LoVecchio battled through post-concussion syndrome and has played well so far in the pre-season for the Bruins. writes under talent analysis:

"LoVecchio is a two-way forward with size. As good as he is offensively, he is equally, if not better, defensively. LoVecchio was one of the Broncos top penalty killers and saw significant time on the power play as well. He is an excellent skater, combining speed with power in his strides. He possesses good acceleration and transitions quite well. LoVecchio utilizes his size, speed and long reach very well. He can often be found helping out his defensemen in defensive zone plays and in turnover situations. LoVecchio is also an outstanding shot blocker."

Projected Roster: Providence Bruins roster
Projected Slot: Second/third line winger for the P-Bruins
