David Pastrnak

The Bruins announced they have recalled forward David Pastrnak from Providence. The 18-year-old will join the team for practice on Tuesday at TD Garden and travel with the team to Pittsburgh when the Bruins take on the Penguins on Wednesday.

The forward was playing with his Czech Republic squad before they were eliminated in the quarterfinal of the 2015 World Junior Championship on Jan. 2. He led the team in points (seven) and assists (six), while also scoring a goal in the tournament. He returned to the Providence Bruins for one game, Jan. 4, before now being recalled for his second stint in the NHL this season after being the Bruins’ first-round pick in the 2014 NHL entry draft.

He’s appeared in five games for the Bruins, including his NHL debut against the Penguins on Nov. 24. He has one assist in his five games. He can play four more NHL games this season without burning off the first year of his entry-level contract. With his 10th NHL game of the season, the three-year contract will begin. If he plays less than 10 NHL games this season (including playoffs), the contract will slide to next season.

In 24 games with Providence, he has totaled 10 goals and 17 assists for 27 points with a plus-14 rating. The forward’€™s 10 goals and 27 points lead Providence, while his 17 assists rank second the team to Alexander Khokhlachev’€™s 18.

The Bruins concluded their four-game West Coast road trip with 5-2 win over the Coyotes Saturday night to snap a three-game losing streak.

Leading the way offensively for Boston was Brad Marchand, whose two goal effort increased his team-leading goal total to eight. The Bruins also received goals from Kevan Miller, Simon Gagne and Loui Eriksson. The goal from Eriksson was his first since Nov. 6 and Boston’s first power play tally since Nov. 13.

Claude Julien tweaked his lineup for the game, putting Seth Griffith and Joe Morrow back in and scratching David Pastrnak and Matt Bartkowski.

The B’s will next play Thursday, when they host the Blackhawks at TD Garden.
