B’s send Nick Johnson, David Warsofsky to Providence

The Bruins on Tuesday assigned forward Nick Johnson [1] and defenseman David Warsofsky to AHL Providence, an indication that some of the injured B’s are ready to return.

Johnson, a former Dartmouth College star, played in seven games since his call-up on Dec. 10, recording no points or penalty minutes, with six shots on goal.

Warsofsky, from Marshfield and Boston University, made his NHL [2] debut on Thursday against the Sabres. He collected five shots but no points in three games.

Forward Daniel Paille [3] (out seven games with concussion symptoms) and defenseman Dougie Hamilton (out since Dec. 8 with a lower-body injury) have made progress as they’ve recovered from their injuries, but Paille did not travel to Nashville [4] for Monday’s game and Hamilton, though he has been skating, has yet to practice with the team. The B’s could ice six defensemen without him and Warsofsky thanks to the recent return of Adam McQuaid. With McQuaid returning to the lineup Monday, the B’s made Matt Bartkowski a healthy scratch against the Predators.
