Today was a busy day for the Boston Bruins as they get ready for their three game road trip out west which includes stops at the Colorado Avalanche, Arizona Coyotes and Vegas Golden Knights.
Earlier today general manager Don Sweeney recalled Danton Heinen from the Providence Bruins of the American Hockey League and signed forward Ryan White to a professional tryout contract. The move to bring in White makes sense with Noel Acciari on the shelf with a broken finger as they play a similar style of game. With David Backes out of the lineup too for the next few weeks, the Bruins are lacking in the physical department.
Sweeney also gave an update on injured center Patrice Bergeron, who did skate during this morning’s practice. Bergeron will not play in Wednesday night’s rematch with the Avalanche. Sweeney says that Bergeron’s lower-body injury is not responding to treatment like they had hoped, but they are still aiming for a return over the weekend in Arizona or Vegas.
