Fraser would need to clear waivers in order to be assigned to Providence of the AHL. The Bruins also recalled Jordan Caron from the P-Bruins.
"[Caron has] been playing well," Julien told reporters. "He's been on the top line, been playing well so we maybe need to give those guys an opportunity. He's got some experience, so if he's deserving he gets a chance to get called up."
In 24 games for the Bruins this season, Fraser had three goals.
