An undrafted free agent out of the University of Minnesota-Duluth, Wolff got his first taste of professional hockey in interesting fashion this season. After finishing out his senior year in 2019-20 as the captain of the team, Wolff started the 2020-21 campaign on loan to DVTK Jegesmedvek in the Slovakian Extraliga. Wolff did end up getting his shot in North America this season after games started back up, though. He got into 24 games with the AHL’s Providence Bruins, tallying two points. A defensive defenseman first and foremost, Wolff at least proved this season that he could stay afloat in a professional lineup.
At age 25 now, however, Wolff’s upside is rather limited. It’s unlikely he gets a shot with Boston’s blueline next season, as Jakub Zboril and Urho Vaakanainen are both young Boston defenders ready for the spotlight. Wolff will likely sit with limited minutes again in Providence, as he hopes to hone his defensive game enough for a shot at some NHL action.
