David Warsofsky

The Bruins recalled defenseman David Warsofsky on Monday as the team enters the final week before the Olympic break.

The B’s have three games this week, two of which will be played without Zdeno Chara due to his duties as Slovkia’s flag-bearer in the opening ceremonies of the Sochi Olympics. Given that the team had been carrying just six defensemen, a call-up was going to be required.

Warsofsky already has played in four games for the B’s this season, recording one goal and no assists with an even rating. In 42 games for Providence, the Marshfield native has three goals and 23 assists for 26 points with a plus-12 rating.

Carl Soderberg out vs. Senators; Bruins recall David Warsofsky and Nick Johnson 12.28.13 at 12:37 pm ET
By   |  3 Comments

Carl Soderberg did not travel to Ottawa and will not play Saturday night against the Senators, according to the Bruins. With both Soderberg and Dennis Seidenberg out, the Bruins have recalled forward Nick Johnson and defenseman David Warsofsky from Providence.

This is the second injury of the season for Soderberg, who missed the first six games with an ankle injury suffered during the preseason. He joins Seidenberg, Dougie Hamilton, Loui Eriksson, Chris Kelly and the suspended Shawn Thornton as players currently out of Boston’s lineup.

Johnson and Warsofky had been up with the Bruins this month and had played seven and three games, respectively. Both players were sent down Tuesday.

B’s send Nick Johnson, David Warsofsky to Providence 12.24.13 at 3:25 pm ET
By   |  2 Comments

The Bruins on Tuesday assigned forward Nick Johnson 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 debut on Thursday against the Sabres. He collected five shots but no points in three games.

Forward Daniel Paille (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 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.

Bruins forced to send Kevan Miller down; David Warsofsky recalled 12.18.13 at 1:22 pm ET

Kevan Miller

WILMINGTON — The Bruins had to make a tough move Wednesday, sending defenseman Kevan Miller back to Providence for the sake of making sure he remains in the organization.

Miller, who has been recalled twice for the B’s and has done well with the opportunity given to him, was about to play his 10th game, which would have meant the team would need to put him through waivers if they B’s tried sending him down later.

“We felt that Kevan would probably be a waiver pickup by somebody,” Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said. “We didn’t want to risk it, so I spoke to Kevan beforehand and he understood. I told him I felt good about his play up here, and probably the next time we bring him up will be for good.

“It’s kind of a cold business decision, but I first asked him, ‘Have you been counting games?’ He said, ‘Yes.’ I said, ‘Do you know what game it is tomorrow night?’ He goes, ‘Yes.’ I said, ‘Well what do you think?’ He understood.”

With Miller back in Providence, the Bruins have recalled defenseman David Warsofksy. That will make for a rather different look for the B’s blueline, as Miller is a bigger, more physical defenseman while Warsofsky is an undersized offensive-minded blue liner.

“Kevan Miller was up, and he’s kind of cut in the mold of Adam McQuaid,” Chiarelli said. “A size/strength guy, right shot. Now you have a guy [in Warsofsky] who’s cut a little in the mold of Torey Krug, so we’ve maybe gone from one extreme to the other, but they all play the same defensive zone coverage in Providence, so you see a pretty seamless transition with these guys and I would expect the same for Warsofsky.”

Warsofsky, who is a Marshfield native and a product of Boston University, has two goals and 14 assists for 16 points in 26 games for Providence this season. The 5-foot-8, 170-pounder suffered an upper-body injury in Providence’s game Friday, but he was skating with the P-Bruins Wednesday and will be ready to go for the Bruins.

“He’s played very well,” Chiarelli said. “He’s a little undersized, but a very good skater, moves the puck well, and he’s had a real good year. He got dinged up a little on Friday, but he’s good to go.”

The Bruins also returned Craig Cunningham to Providence after he was recalled for Tuesday’s game on an emergency basis.

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.
