The Bruins recalled defenseman Torey Krug from Providence Wednesday, and the 21-year-old will be available for Wednesday night’s game against the Canadiens.
In 55 games for Providence this season, Krug has 10 goals and 24 assists for 34 points and a minus-6 rating. The timing of the callup is intriguing given that it’s a week before the trade deadline. The Bruins may have recalled him for a potential showcase or as a body in the event that they move one of the defensemen currently on the roster.
