|Tyler Seguin unsure of living arrangement||10.04.11 at 2:11 pm ET|
It isn’t Chad Ochocinco declaring he’ll live with a fan, but Tyler Seguin said at Tuesday’s media day that he’s not sure where or with whom he’ll live this season. After spending his rookie year on his own, it appears the Bruins have different plans for the now 19-year-old.
That could mean a billet family for Seguin, or it could mean he might move in with another player. One thought that would have seemed to make sense a season ago was Mark Recchi, but the veteran winger said he didn’t have a spacious enough place, as he did with Jordan Staal in 2006.
“There wasn’t anything suitability for me with someone or with a family, but this year, speaking with management, it’s going to be a little different, but nothing is confirmed,” Seguin said.
The second-year player has been living with another one of the younger Bruins, and said that the Bruins have been talking to him since before he arrived back in Boston about a new living arrangement. If it is indeed a billet family, Seguin will be in a familiar situation. He lived with a billet family when playing OHL puck in Plymouth, Mich.
“I lived that life when I was 15, 16, 17 I think,” he said. “Just the two years there. Billet is always good. It’s nice to have someone to talk to, and dinners to have with a family. It makes you feel like you have a family there even though your family is in another country. I’m open to anything.”

|Bruins waive Anton Khudobin||10.04.11 at 1:35 pm ET|
Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli announced at Tuesday’s media day that the team waived goaltender Anton Khudobin on Monday. According to the Boston Globe’s Fluto Shinzawa, Khudobin cleared waivers.
With Khudobin headed to Providence, it appears the current roster is the one that fans will see in Thursday night’s season-opener. The final shoe to drop will be the signing of veteran forward Chris Clark, who has been in camp on a tryout. Both Clark and Chiarelli said Tuesday that nothing has been finalized.
|Bruins ready for banner night Thursday||10.04.11 at 11:20 am ET|
With their banner raising ceremony on opening night just two days away, the Bruins held a full practice on Tuesday morning at TD Garden.
The full squad, except for defenseman Adam McQuaid, was in attendance as the team prepares for the Flyers on Thursday, one of the teams the Bruins beat in their stunning Stanley Cup title run in the playoffs last spring. McQuaid missed the practice with an illness.
Tuesday also marks media day for the Bruins, followed by the arrival of their Stanley Cup rings later in the day by armored vehicle.
|Bruins release Lane MacDermid and Max Sauve from camp||10.02.11 at 12:03 pm ET|
The Bruins have made two more cuts, bringing their roster to 25 players after sending forwards Max Sauve and Lane MacDermid to Providence.
The Bruins will hold team-building activities Sunday and Monday at an undisclosed location.
|Steven Kampfer out 2-4 weeks with sprained MCL||10.01.11 at 1:10 pm ET|
The Bruins announced Friday night that defenseman Steven Kampfer has a sprained MCL and will miss between two and four weeks. Kampfer injured his left knee Thursday night on a hit from Senators defenseman Jared Cowen in the Bruins’ 2-1 loss at TD Garden.
Kampfer’s absence means Matt Bartkowski will be the team’s seventh defenseman when the season begins Thursday against the Flyers. Kampfer and Bartkowski had been in a tight race for the spot prior to Kampfer’s injury.
This is Kampfer’s second knee injury since late last season. The Michigan native had previously injured his right knee playing for Providence and was unavailable through the first two rounds of the playoffs.
|Steven Kampfer absent as Bruins return to practice||09.30.11 at 11:41 am ET|
WILMINGTON — The Bruins returned to practice Friday at Ristuccia Arean as they began to prepare for their final game of the preseason. Steven Kampfer was not on the ice, as the young defenseman injured his left knee Thursday night and had an MRI scheduled for Friday. With Kampfer out, Shawn Thornton donned a black jersey as a defenseman.
Here’s how the lines looked.

|Steven Kampfer injures left knee, MRI scheduled for Friday||09.29.11 at 10:26 pm ET|
Bruins defenseman Steven Kampfer put forth a strong bid to start the season in Boston with his performance Thursday, but it was an injury suffered late in the Bruins’ 2-1 loss to the Senators that may have taken him out of the equation.
Kampfer suffered a left knee injury on a hit from Senators defenseman Jared Cowen. B’s coach Claude Julien said after the game that Kampfer would have an MRI on Friday, and that he had liked what he saw out of the defenseman prior to the injury. Kampfer entered the game competing with Matt Bartkowski for the seventh defense spot.
“They’re both pretty good,” Julien said. “Actually, I thought Kampfer was having a real good night and skating and moving the puck.”
Kampfer injured his right knee and was on crutches late last season.
