Bruins bring up forward Fraser from AHL's Providence, send down Florek

MONTREAL - The Boston Bruins called up forward Matt Fraser from Providence and returned Justin Florek to the AHL club on Thursday.

The six-foot-two, 204-pound Fraser spent most of the season in Providence but scored two goals for the Bruins in a 14-game call up in mid-season.

The 23-year-old from Red Deer, Alta., is available to play in Game 4 of the Bruins second-round series with the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday night.

Florek, a forward, played the entire five-game first round against Detroit and the series opener against Montreal, but sat out the last two games in favour of Jordan Caron.

Quote of the Day

My job was to get that puck and put it on net, and his job was not letting me do it. I got the best of that, but that game's over and to be honest I already forgot about it.
