Bartkowski, Spooner sent to Providence

The Bruins announced Thursday night that they have assigned defenseman Matt Bartkowski and forward Ryan Spooner to Providence and placed forward Jamie Tardiff on waivers (for purpose of assignment). Also, defenseman Aaron Johnson will join the Providence Bruins on a conditioning loan.

That leaves 13 forwards and seven defensemen in camp, with David Warsofsky being the extra rearguard.
