Twitter haters missed their shot

Haters motivated him

Twitter haters (and trust me, there are many) have, against their wishes, fueled a Bruins prospect’s motivation

Jakub Zboril said that since getting off social media, he’s been much happier.

“After last year, when all of the people saying something about what they didn’t like about me, it really pushed me forward. I told myself I wanted to be in better shape and so I worked really hard at it,” explained Zboril.

The 19-year old wasn’t in good shape entering the training camp last season, where he was troubled with a knee injury that affected his play in the junior season with the Saint John Sea Dogs (6 goals and 20 points in 50 games). That was a dip from his previous year’s performance of 13 goals and 33 points in 44 games, before getting drafted.
