Lefebvre recalled from Providence Bruins

Big winger Guillaume Lefebvre was recalled by the Boston Bruins [1] on Thursday morning and is expected to be available for Thursday night’s game against the Philadelphia Flyers [2]. Lefebvre played for the B’s against the Phoenix Coyotes [3] last weekend on an emergency basis while replacing the injured Milan Lucic [4], but was sent back down to the Providence Bruins following that game.

Lefebvre had one assist and 42 penalty minutes in five games with the P-Bruins this season and didn’t register anything on the stat line during his one game with Boston last weekend. “Banged up” winger Shawn Thornton [5] was going on the two-game trip with the team through Philadelphia and Ottawa, but Lefebvre’s recall might be a sign that Thornton isn’t quite ready to play.

Lefebvre has two goals and 4 assists along with 13 penalty minutes in 39 games for the Flyers, Penguins [6] and the Bruins through his pro hockey career.
