After playing his first two NHL games in the past week, Jack Studnicka was assigned to Providence over the weekend. His fellow call-up, Brendan Gaunce, remained on the Bruins roster without playing a game since the Thanksgiving eve game against the Senators. Well, he’s not staying up.
Brandan Gaunce was sent back down to Providence, which was expected. What wasn’t expected was who was recalled by the Bruins.
John Moore, still recovering from a shoulder surgery, was on LTIR but finally cleared for contact. He was loaned to Providence on an injury conditioning stint which lasted all of one game against the Charlotte Checkers. He apparently had a good game and was subsequently recalled.
So, what’s his status? Who knows, really. On CapFriendly he is still listed as on LTIR, so until he’s taken off that (and presumably some other transaction happens so that the B’s can afford to do that), he’s not NHL eligible. So, we’ll see what happens.
The Bruins are back in action at home tonight against the Carolina Hurricanes.
