Morning Free Association: Providence Bruins Media Day

Let’s change our focus today to the team in Providence, the baby B’s, Providence Bruins. The P-Bruins season started this past weekend with two games, both of which they won, the team held a media day today.

Weymouth product Paul Carey has been named captain for this season. Carey previously played for the Bruins AHL affiliate in 2014 before he spent a couple of years in the Capitals organization, then time with the Rangers and Senators before returning to the P-Bruins midway through last season.

Providence head coach spoke about why Carey was the obvious choice:

“Ever since he’s been here, he’s been that guy for us,” Leach said. “He comes in, he scores 22 goals in 29 games. He’s great on the power play and great with the kids, you name it. It was a no-brainer for us to start and it continues to be to this day.”

Carey has been around both leagues and wants to shape the younger players and those who are still trying to get on the NHL roster.

Winger Anders Bjork was hoping to make the Boston Bruins roster out of camp. Perhaps this has been excellent motivation for him for his two points in this weekend’s games, that, and playing on his natural position of left wing. He spoke with the media about being down in Providence as an opportunity to work on specific areas: scoring and finishing his opportunities. After having back-to-back seasons end in shoulder surgery and rehab, Bjork is just glad to be able to play again and hopefully finish out a season.

Morning all. You know it’s been a long week when you take a nap in your dream. I couldn’t help it. It was a very comfy bean bag chair.
