In the event of the 2012-2013 NHL season lockout, we have encouraged you on numerous occasions to get familiarized with your AHL affiliate, the Providence Bruins. Now, in order to do so, you are going to have to memorize and know one thing by heart; the schedule. How can you watch the games if you don’t know when they are occurring or who they are against? Granted, that’s what we are here for, to remind you, but you should still have some general knowledge. For a nice and easy printable version, the Providence Bruins have provided us with a PDF format. (How thoughtful!) First things first, below is a list of all players that will be attending the Providence Bruins Training Camp this season along with their pre-season schedule.
