Bruins assign Brian McGrattan to Providence for conditioning

WILMINGTON — The Bruins announced on Friday that they have assigned forward Brian McGrattan to Providence for conditioning. McGrattan, who played with the B’s throughout training camp on a tryout basis, was signed by the team following the second game of the season and has been a healthy scratch in each of the five games he’s technically been a member of the Bruins.

The Bruins plan on having McGrattan play in three games with the Baby B’s before returning to the NHL [1] club this coming Monday. By sending him down for conditioning he does not have to clear waivers.
