Zdeno Chara begins skating, Bruins announce recalls of David Pastrnak, Jordan Caron 11.24.14 at 10:17 am ET
By   |  Comments Off

Zdeno Chara was spotted on the ice at TD Garden by Steve Conroy of the Boston Herald Monday morning, marking the first time the Bruins captain has been seen skating since being declared out with a torn PCL suffered last month.

Chara is four and a half weeks into what the Bruins said would be a 4-6 week recovery. He is one of three defensemen currently out for the Bruins, as Adam McQuaid is expected to miss 5-7 more weeks with a broken thumb and David Warsofsky is nursing a groin strain. Warsofsky was playing in Boston as an injury replacement.

The Bruins also announced the call-ups of David Pastrnak and Jordan Caron Monday morning. Both transactions were made Sunday. For more on the recall of Pastrnak, click here.

Bruins recall David Pastrnak, Jordan Caron 11.23.14 at 6:21 pm ET

David Pastrnak

The David Pastrnak era will soon begin in Boston, as WEEI.com has learned the B’s will recall the right wing prior to Monday’s game against the Penguins. The news was first reported by Kirk Luedeke of the New England Hockey Journal.

Pastrnak, the Bruins’ first-round pick (25th overall) in June’s draft, has been in Providence all season. He has five goals and 13 assists for 18 points this season in 17 AHL games. His callup comes with the Bruins battling multiple injuries on offense, as David Krejci, Brad Marchand and Chris Kelly all missed Saturday’s game against the Canadiens.

The 18-year-old has skated mostly on Providence’s top line this season. He was named the AHL’s Rookie of the Month in October, his first professional month in North America.

The Bruins sent Jordan Caron and Matt Lindblad, both of whom were recalled for Saturday’s game against the Canadiens, back to Providence Sunday, though the AHL transactions page indicated at the time that Pastrnak was officially recalled that Boston had recalled Caron once again.

Bruins sign Simon Gagne to 1-year contract 10.14.14 at 11:09 am ET
By   |  Comments Off

The Bruins signed veteran forward Simon Gagne to a one-year, $600,000 contract Tuesday. In corresponding moves, the team sent Jordan Caron to Providence and put Bobby Robins on waivers with the intentions of sending him to Providence.

Gagne, 34, did not play last season and was brought into camp on a tryout by the Bruins. In 38 games in the lockout-shortened 2013 season, he had five goals and six assists for 11 points.

The Bruins have a few options with where they can play Gagne. The team’s fourth-line is far from solidified, as Tuesday’s moves make it three players who have played on the fourth line this season and have been sent down (Caron, Robins and Craig Cunningham). The left-shooting Gagne could serve as either a left or right wing on the line.

In Tuesday’s practice, Gagne was on the fourth line with Daniel Paille and Ryan Spooner.

Depending on how the Bruins feel about their other options, they could also play him on David Krejci‘s line with Milan Lucic. Seth Griffith played right wing with the pair on Monday. The team could also try Gagne, a former 40-goal-scorer who hasn’t scored more than 17 goals in a season since 2009-10, on one of their power play units.

Jordan Caron sent to Providence as Bruins set roster (for now) 10.07.14 at 6:02 pm ET

The Bruins made multiple moves to trim their roster to 23 players prior to Tuesday’€™s 5 p.m. deadline, but general manager Peter Chiarelli cautioned beforehand that the moves made Tuesday might reflect a different roster than the one that takes the ice Wednesday against the Flyers when the regular season begins.

As Chiarelli said, the team would be doing some “€œroster manipulation”€ in order to get as much cap space as possible from using the long-term injury exception to the upper limit of the cap.

The moves included assigning Jordan Caron to Providence, recalling Brian Ferlin and Malcolm Subban from Providence, placing David Krejci on injured reserve, placing Marc Savard on long term injured reserve and putting Gregory Campbell and Anthony Camara on non-roster injured reserve.

The team had sent David Pastrnak to Providence earlier in the day.

That leaves the following roster, which, again, will probably be different from Wednesday’€™s:

FORWARDS (13): Patrice Bergeron, Craig Cunningham, Loui Eriksson, Brian Ferlin, Matt Fraser, Chris Kelly, Milan Lucic, Brad Marchand, Daniel Paille, Bobby Robins, Reilly Smith, Carl Soderberg, Ryan Spooner

DEFNESEMEN (7): Matt Bartkowski, Zdeno Chara, Dougie Hamilton, Torey Krug, Adam McQuaid, Kevan Miller, Dennis Seidenberg

GOALTENDERS (3): Tuukka Rask, Malcolm Subban, Niklas Svedberg

Bruins place Jordan Caron, David Warsofsky and Craig Cunningham on waivers 10.04.14 at 1:29 pm ET

The Bruins placed Jordan Caron, David Warsofsky and Craig Cunningham on waivers Saturday.

Teams will now have 24 hours to claim the players. The Bruins noted in a press release that Warsofsky was waived with the intention of being sent to Providence.

The most notable name of the bunch is Jordan Caron, the team’€™s first-round pick in 2009. In 123 regular-season games, Caron has 12 goals and 16 assists for 28 points. He also has played in nine postseason games, with one goal.

Warsofsky, a native of Marshfield who played college hockey at Boston University, is a decent candidate to be claimed by another team, as he is an NHL-ready defenseman whose offensive play makes him a valuable power play asset. He told WEEI.com this week that though he wants to remain in the Bruins’€™ organization, his goal is to be an NHL player.

“If I’€™€™m going to be in the AHL, I’€™€™d rather be in Providence than any other city,” Warsofsky said. “€œ€œI’€™€™m comfortable down there with the coaching staff, the organization and the way they play. It’€™€™s a great city to be in if I am in the AHL, but obviously my goal is to play in the NHL, so the first opportunity, I want it to be here, but if it is somewhere else, it’€™€™s part of the business.”€

Cunningham was vying for a job as a fourth-line center or 13th forward after playing the last three seasons in Providence.

Seth Griffith, Jordan Caron have multi-point games as Bruins fall to Capitals 09.26.14 at 10:36 pm ET

The Bruins suffered a 5-4 overtime loss Friday night as they faced the Capitals in their second preseason meeting in three days.

Seth Griffith and Jordan Caron had two points apiece for Boston, with Caron assisting both of Griffith’€™s goals. The B’€™s also got scoring from Matt Fraser (his second power-play goal in as many games this preseason) and Matt Lindblad.

Caron stole the puck from Washington defenseman and high-priced free agent acquisition Matt Niskanen to set up Griffith’s first goal and took part in an impressive passing sequence on Griffith’s second goal. After the game, Claude Julien spoke of what Caron’s play is doing for his chances of earning a full-time spot this season after serving as the team’s 13th forward last season.

“I thought he had a real strong game tonight,” Julien told reporters. “There’€™s no doubt he’€™s fighting for a spot,and he wants to show us that he belongs here, and if he plays like that, he’€™s got a real good chance of sticking.”

The Capitals got two power play goals from Alexander Ovechkin, with their other regulation scoring coming from Michael Latta and Liam O’€™Brien. Troy Brouwer scored the game-winner in overtime.

Niklas Svedberg, who is expected to be Tuukka Rask‘€™s backup this season, played the entire game for Boston.
