Bruins release Dougie Hamilton, Jared Knight, Ryan Spooner, 11 others from camp

The Bruins made 14 cuts Friday night, and they’re rather significant.

Andrew Bodnarchuk, Ryan Button, Marc Cantin, Carter Camper, Craig Cunningham, Josh Hennessy, Kirk MacDonald, Nathan McIver, Kevan Miller and Jamie Tardif will head to Providence, while Dougie Hamilton, Alexander Khokhlachev, Jared Knight and Ryan Spooner will return to the OHL.

Pretty surprising to see Spooner, who lasted deep into last year’s camp, go back this soon. He and Knight figured to have the best (albeit slim) shots at potentially making the OHL to NHL [1] leap for the B’s. This is good news for the likes of Chris Clark and Jordan Caron.
