The Boston Bruins will head into the rest of the 2019-20 season or special playoff format as a top contender.
Not only will they be well rested, they'll also have a couple of tricks up their sleeve.
Two standouts from this years Providence Bruins are expected to join the club.
Reports indicate that Jack Studnicka and Trent Frederic will be called up to be part of the Bruins extended roster and AHL head coach Jay Leach says they'll both make an immediate impact if given the chance.
“It’s [Jack] Studnicka, it’s [Trent] Frederic. If we’re talking five guys it would be Studnicka, Frederic, Zboril, Vaakanainen and [Steve] Kampfer. I think [Karson] Kuhlman would be in that mix too since he’d been in Boston before. It’s tough to nail down, but that’s who I’d be going with to start. Where does it end? It depends on what the limit is and what they’re going to need. I don’t think anybody can forecast that right now. I can tell you there are plenty of candidates.”
The Bruins were one of the hands down best teams before the AHL was canceled and were on an absolute massive win streak.
