Bruins Down, P-Bruins Up

Forward Shawn Thornton and  Defenseman Johnny Boychuk were noticeably absent from practice back in Wilmington today. After practice it was revealed that Boychuk is still feeling “concussion symptoms” and that both him and Thornton are day-to-day (via NHLBruins ). With two prime players down, the team had to look towards the Providence Bruins to call up two players.

The first is defenseman Andrew Bodnarchuk who as you might recall was sent back to Providence yesterday after the 11 day roadtrip and played with the team. Bodnarchuk was a healthy scratch for all six games on the roadtrip but with Boychuk out and a game against the Senators tomorrow, it looks as though his presence might be necessary.This season Bodnarchuk has played in 47 games in Providence and had registered 4 goals and 7 assists.

The second player is forward Max Sauve. This is Sauve’s first career recall.Sauve was drafted by the B’s in 2008 and this will be his first shot to play at the TD Garden. In 26 games this season, he has scored 6 goals and 7 assists. This is the 22 year old’s third season in Providence.

With a trade deadline on the horizon, it’ll be interesting to see if the Bruins add any players to the roster. Tomorrow we’ll know for sure if Bodnarchuk or Sauve will make the lineup. With all the injuries hindering the B’s, it makes sense why they’re choosing to use players in the system, but I can’t help but wonder if a big deal is coming up.

**UPDATE!
Just as soon as Bodnarchuk and Sauve were called up, they were sent back to Providence to make room for some new players on the roster!! POST COMING SOON!

Drafted by Boston 47th overall in round two of 2008 NHL Entry Draft.
