The Bruins are less than a week from opening night at the Capitals and have made more cuts to the training camp roster. Jack Studnicka, the center who stated that he wanted to make it difficult for management to send him back to juniors, was sent back to his juniors team, the Oshawa Generals. The following were assigned to the Providence Bruins: Anton Blidh, Colby Cave, Cody Goloubef, Mark McNeill, and Dan Vladar. Jordan Szwarz was placed o waivers the day before and will report to Providence soon; he was kept on the roster for the game against Detroit Red Wings.
Goalie Zane McIntyre is still up with the big roster — presumably because he needs two clear waivers to make it to the Providence camp. Last season, Malcolm Subban was in a similar situation. While the common thought was that Subban would clear waivers, he was picked up by the Vegas Golden Knights becoming their backup goalie. Chances are that McIntyre will clear waivers but it’s clear that Don Sweeney is going to wait until the last minute to send Zane down.
The preseason is winding down with only one game remaining on Saturday. Tomorrow, we’ll talk about others who remain in camp.
