|Bruins recall Alexander Khokhlachev, Craig Cunningham, Justin Florek and Matt Lindblad||04.13.14 at 12:55 pm ET|
The Bruins recalled four forwards from Providence on an emergency basis Sunday morning. Alexander Khokhlachev, Craig Cunningham, Justin Florek and Matt Lindblad will all join the team in New Jersey and be available for the team’s regular-season finale against the Devils.
Khokhlachev is the only one of the four who has yet to play an NHL game, and as such, the 2011 second-round pick will in all likelihood make his NHL debut. He has 21 goals and 36 assists for a team-leading 57 points in 63 games for Providence this season.
Florek played very well for the Bruins in a three-game stint with the team in January, scoring a goal and adding an assist for two points while subbing on the team’s fourth line. Cunningham and Lindblad each played one game apiece.
The forwards will be used both due to injuries (Daniel Paille and Patrice Bergeron both left Saturday’s game, while Chris Kelly has missed the last two and won’t play Sunday) and perhaps for the sake of rest of other players. According to the Boston Globe, Bergeron, Paille, Kelly, Zdeno Chara, David Krejci, Milan Lucic and Jarome Iginla did not travel to New Jersey.

|Bruins call up forwards Craig Cunningham, Alexander Khokhlachev||02.20.14 at 12:46 pm ET|
The Bruins announced Thursday that they have called up forwards Craig Cunningham and Alexander Khokhlachev from the team’s AHL affiliate in Providence.
In 53 games with the P-Bruins, Cunningham has a team-high 19 goals with 15 assists. Khokhlachev has 13 goals and 21 assists in 43 Providence games.
Cunningham and Khokhlachev are expected to provide depth in practice as the Bruins give their Olympians some time to readjust before the NHL starts up again next week.
|Bruins cut Craig Cunningham, David Warsofsky, Mike Moore||09.23.13 at 11:53 pm ET|
The Bruins made three cuts from camp Monday night, sending Craig Cunningham and David Warsofsky to Providence and placing Mike Moore on the waivers for the purpose of assignment to Providence.
None of the three cuts were surprises, as these were relatively minor moves. With two preseason games left and 28 healthy players, expect bigger cuts in the coming days leading up to next Thursday’s regular season opener.
|Cunningham in the fourth||06.26.10 at 2:43 pm ET|
After not having a pick in the third round, the Bruins selected 5-foot-10 Vancouver (WHL) forward Craig Cunningham with the seventh pick in the fourth round of the NHL draft on Saturday. The pick was the 97th overall choice choice and was acquired from the Carolina Hurricanes in the Aaron Ward deal. The Bruins first three picks were centers Tyler Seguin (second overall), Jared Knight (32), and Ryan Spooner (45).
Now 19, Cunningham played four years of junior hockey. After winning a Memorial Cup in his first year with the Giants, his production increased significantly each year. His point totals in his four years were five, 25, 50, and 97. He scored 37 goals this past season.
A left-handed shot, the 5-foot-10, 184-pound Cunningham played center in the WHL but is believed to be a left wing at the next level.
