The Boston Bruins sent some players packing yesterday. Axel Andersson was sent back to Djurgarden IF in the Swedish Elite League. Cameron Hughes, Emil Johansson, Joona Koppanen, and Zach Senyshyn were assigned to the Providence Bruins camp. Camp invite Tanner Pond will report to Providence.
More cuts are to come today according to this nugget from a presser after last night’s game.
Bruce Cassidy says more cuts could come before tomorrow’s practice. Expects to be down to one larger group. #NHLBruins

Last night in Philly, the Bruins managed to hold off a resurgent Flyers team, likely inspired by their new
nightmare fuel for Amalie Benjamin mascot, Gritty.

It seems funny to say this, that many Bruins players made their 2018 domestic preseason debut.
Cehlarik – Frederic – Stempniak
Donato – JFK – McNeill
Winnik – Studnicka – Szwarz (A)
Wagner (A) – Cave – Kuhlman
Vaakanainen – Carlo (A)
Grzelcyk – Goloubef
Lauzon – Kampfer
The B’s got goals from Cehlarik, Carlo, Wagner, and Stempniak, who had 2 assists on earlier goals.
Hey, the Bruins Twitter account is even calling him Brando (Carlrissian). #Colt25
