BOSTON, MA - Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced today that the club has recalled defenseman Mark Stuart from the Providence Bruins of the American Hockey League.
Stuart, a second-year player from Rochester, Minnesota and Colorado College, has not seen any action for the Bruins this season after undergoing off-season knee surgery.

This is the second consecutive day that Stuart has been recalled by Boston, as he was called up yesterday morning and later reassigned to Providence yesterday afternoon.

In addition to his play with Boston, Stuart saw action in 60 games with Providence last season, recording four goals and three assists for seven points and a +4 plus/minus rating.
