|Bruins recall Zach Hamill||11.09.11 at 5:58 pm ET|
The Bruins have recalled Zach Hamill from Providence on an emergency basis. He’ll be there for Thursday’s morning skate and could play against the Oilers Thursday night.
This move serves as insurance in case Rich Peverley is unable to play. Peverley missed Monday’s game, but returned to practice Wednesday and is day-to-day with an undisclosed injury. With Daniel Paille likely out due surgery on his broken nose, Benoit Pouliot already figures to be in the lineup.
Hamill, the eighth overall pick in 2007, has five goals and 10 assists in 14 games for Providence this season. He played three games for the B’s last season and had one assist. In his career, he has played four games for the big club and has two points (both assists) in the NHL.
|Matt Bartkowski joins Bruins for first postseason practice||04.12.11 at 11:18 am ET|
WILMINGTON — The Bruins began their first practice of the postseason Tuesday in preparation of their first-round matchup with the Canadiens. A couple of reinforcements are in town in the form of Anton Khudobin and Matt Bartkowski. Bartkowski is here as a depth guy in place of Steven Kampfer, who is out at least two weeks with a knee injury suffered over the weekend while playing for Providence. Kampfer is with the Bruins at Ristuccia, but will do off-ice work and will work with the medical staff.
The color-coded lines are no different than one would expect. They are as follows:
The B’s also announced their Black Aces. In addition to Bartkowski, Khudobin and the injured Kampfer, they are Michael Hutchinson, Jamie Arniel, Jordan Caron, Zach Hamill, Lane MacDermid, Trent Whitfield and Yury Alexandrov.
|Bruins assign Zach Hamill to Providence||02.13.11 at 3:49 pm ET|
The Bruins announced following Sunday’s 4-2 loss to the Red Wings that they have assigned center Zach Hamill to Providence. Hamill played in three games since being recalled last week, picking up an assist on a Michael Ryder goal in Wednesday’s 8-6 victory over the Canadiens.
Hamill did not play for the B’s on Sunday. He was a healthy scratch in favor of rookie center Tyler Seguin. The eighth overall pick in the 2007 NHL draft, Hamill has 28 points (3 G, 25 A) in 44 games for the team’s AHL affiliate this season.
|Bruins hold Saturday practice||02.12.11 at 11:42 am ET|
WILMINGTON — After taking an ugly 6-1 loss to the Red Wings on Friday, the Bruins held practice Saturday in anticipation of Sunday’s tilt in Detroit. It looks like Mark Recchi was given a rest/maintenance day. With that being said, here is how the color-coordinated lined looked.

|Tyler Seguin a healthy scratch vs. Red Wings||02.11.11 at 11:45 am ET|
Bruins coach Claude Julien said that the team will be going with the same lineup Friday against the Red Wings as they had in Wednesday’s 8-6 win over the Canadiens. That means that as far as rookies go, Zach Hamill and Jordan Caron are in and second overall pick Tyler Seguin is out.
It will be the second consecutive game Seguin has been a healthy scratch, and technically the third time this season. He was scratched twice in December, one of which was the result of flu-like symptoms.
In 51 games this season, Seguin has eight goals and nine assists for 17 points and a plus-1 rating. He has averaged 12:18 of ice time, though he has played less than 10 minutes of the last four games.
|Bruins’ lines see tweaking with Zach Hamill promotion||02.04.11 at 12:14 pm ET|
WILMINGTON — After taking part in one of the more interesting games in recent memory Thursday, the Bruins returned to practice Friday at Ristuccia Arena. With Zach Hamill having been called up and Daniel Paille set to begin a four-game suspension, the lines saw some adjustment. With both players on the ice, here’s how the lines looked:
Shawn Thornton left the ice during the practice, though it’s unclear at this time what the cause of his early departure was. We’ll have more from the room following practice.
|Bruins call up Zach Hamill from Providence||02.03.11 at 10:44 pm ET|
The Bruins announced Thursday that have called up center Zach Hamill from Providence. The team’s first-round draft pick (eighth overall) in the 2007 draft, Hamill is second on the Providence Bruins with 28 points. His 25 assists are a team-high.
The promotion does not have anything to do with Daniel Paille, who seems a safe bet to be suspended for a blindside hit on Stars forward Raymond Sawada in the second period of Thursday’s 6-3 victory over Dallas. Hamill could be seen in the Bruins’ dressing room after the game, and coach Claude Julien noted that he was informed of the move earlier in the day.
Hamill is likely up to provide an another option for the team with Marc Savard’s season in question. Savard suffered the fourth concussion of his career last month against the Avalanche.
