WILMINGTON, Mass. -- The Boston Bruins announced Monday morning that defenseman David Warsofsky has been recalled from Providence of the AHL. He’s likely here since veteran defenseman Zdeno Chara will miss the final two games before the Olympic break due to his participation in the Opening Ceremony. Chara will serve as captain for the Slovakia team and also will carry his country's flag.
Warsofsky played in four games for the Bruins earlier this season and scored his first NHL goal on Dec. 28 against the Ottawa Senators. A product of Boston University, he’s played in 42 games for the P-Bruins this season, recording three goals and 23 assists for 26 points, including a plus-12 rating.
After having Super Bowl Sunday off, the Bruins were back on the practice ice at Ristuccia Arena this morning. Coming off a 4-0 win over the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday at TD Garden, the team is preparing to host the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday night.
