Morning Free Association: Transactions

As we inch ever closer to the start of the NHL 2017-18 regular season, the Bruins announced yesterday a couple of roster moves and prospect signing.

Defenseman Jeremy Lauzon and forward Ryan Fitzgerald were sent down to join the Providence Bruins training camp. Lauzon, a 2015 second-round draft pick, appeared in three pre-season games, scoring a goal and averaging 13:55 in time on ice. Fitzgerald spent a short stint in Providence during the regular season in 2016-17, playing most of his games during the Calder Cup playoff run.

It’s not surprising that Lauzon was sent down as this is his first year out of juniors and it’s rare that defensemen usually need more time to develop in the AHL before joining the big club. Plus with the addition of Paul Postma this free agency period, the Bruins will have room to move defensive players around while Torey Krug recuperates from his broken jaw. Fitzgerald tried to break through a lineup of talented forwards like Jake DeBrusk, Anders Bjork, Jesse Gabrielle, and Austin Czarnik.

The Bruins announced that they have signed 2017 second-round draft pick Jack Studnicka to an entry level contract. This season Studnicka is serving as the captain of the Oshawa Generals in the OHL.


An aside: The Tallest asked yesterday is anyone wanted to go to the Big E yesterday. I think we’re tentatively planning something for Saturday. If you needed any other reason to go other than The Tallest himself, they have fantastic poutine, butter sculptures, and baby goats.

The Habs host the Leafs tonight in Quebec City. Hopefully the Habs get lit up again so TSN 690 Montreal is happy fun listening time tomorrow.

Speaking of butter sculptures, there’s a movie on Netflix called Butter about the seedy underworld of butter sculpting competitions. I keep meaning to watch that.

I can’t wait for the 30-minute pre-game ceremony for it.
