Penner, Hamill called up

The Bruins have recalled defenseman Jeff Penner and forward Zach

Hamill from the Providence Bruins (AHL). Both players

will join the team for the trip to Washington, D.C., and be available for Sunday’s game against the Capitals, according to general manager Peter Chiarelli.

This is the first recall to Boston for Hamill, 21, who was selected by the Bruins in the first round (eighth overall) of the 2007 draft.

Penner, 22, was signed by Boston as a free agent in March

2008 after spending the 2007-08 season at the University of

Alaska-Fairbank. He made his NHL debut on March 9 against the Maple Leafs.
