A smart, smooth-skating player, Hunwick has fashioned a solid NHL career since entering the League with the Boston Bruins, who selected him in the sixth round (No. 224) of the 2004 NHL Draft.
The left-shot, puck-moving defenseman arrived in Boston in 2007 with a strong resume that included two years with USA Hockey's National Team Development Program and a four-year NCAA career at the University of Michigan. Hunwick had 24 goals and 97 points in 163 college games and captained the Wolverines as a senior. He also won a gold medal with the United States at the 2004 World Junior Championship.
