Bruins Place Matt Beleskey On Waivers

The 6-foot, 203-pound forward has played in 14 games with Boston this season

by Boston Bruins @NHLBruins / Boston Bruins

BOSTON - Boston Bruins General Manager Don Sweeney announced today, December 14, that the team has placed Matt Beleskey  on waivers for purpose of assignment to Providence.

"Matt was placed on waivers with the hope that he will have the opportunity to go to Providence, play in all situations, get his confidence and game back to the level he brought in his first year with the Bruins," said Sweeney. "Matt has been nothing but an exemplary teammate and pro during the time that he has not been in the lineup but we felt playing would be more beneficial to Matt than practicing, especially with the limited practice time available with regards to our schedule."

Beleskey, 29, has appeared in 14 games with Boston this season. The 6-foot, 203-pound forward appeared in 49 games in 2016-17, tallying three goals and five assists for eight points with 47 penalty minutes and a minus-10 rating. In his first season with Boston in 2015-16, Beleskey recorded 15 goals and 22 assists for 37 points with 65 penalty minutes and a plus-6 rating in 80 games.

Over his nine-year NHL career, Beleskey has skated in 472 games, compiling 75 goals and 82 assists for 157 points with 431 penalty minutes.

The Windsor, Ontario native was originally selected by Anaheim in the fourth round (112th overall) of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft. He signed a multi-year contract with Boston as a free agent on July 1, 2015.

Bruins Find A Way, Fly Past Wings in OT

Pastrnak, Marchand deliver during come-from-behind win in Detroit

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

DETROIT - Finding ways to win when you may not have your best is one of the truest tests of a good team. For much of the first two periods on Wednesday night, the Bruins looked anything but the group that had won eight of their last 10 games.

Boston managed just two shots on goal in the first period - none over the frame's final 18 minutes. The Red Wings played a stifling brand of defense for much of the night, zipping shut shooting lanes with 22 blocked shots.

But the Bruins were not deterred.

Miller ruled out after birth of first child

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

DETROIT - Paul Postma understands his role. As Boston's seventh defenseman for much of this season, it's been the veteran blue liner's job to be prepared when called upon.

So despite having played just once over Boston's last eight games, the 28-year-old is more than ready to return to action tonight against the Red Wings.

Spooner Travels to Detroit, Remains Day-to-Day

Forward's playing status against Red Wings remains in question

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - Ryan Spooner practiced in full for the second straight day on Tuesday and remains day-to-day as he recovers from a lower-body injury that has hindered him since his return from a groin tear late last month.

The forward came back from the initial injury to play in two games before tweaking the ailment and missing the B's game with Edmonton on Nov. 26. Spooner proceeded to suit up for the next three contests then exited the lineup again, missing Boston's wins over the Coyotes and Islanders.

Agostino Delivers Filthy OT Winner for Providence

Between-the-legs tally secured P-Bruins' seventh straight win

by Michael Tolvo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BostonBruins.com - Playing in the 2,000th regular season game in their history, the Providence Bruins received, perhaps, one of the most dazzling overtime goals in the history of the franchise. Kenny Agostino scooped the puck behind his own net just a few seconds into extra time and proceeded to skate it the length of the ice, evading defenders before ending the game with an audacious between-the-legs finish to give the P-Bruins a 4-3 win over Utica on Sunday for their seventh consecutive victory.

Photo Gallery: Bruins Deliver Toys to Local Hospitals

Players spread some holiday cheer during annual event

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - Just two weeks after shopping for the toys, the Bruins set out around the city to deliver them - and a little holiday cheer - to over 600 children at local hospitals on Monday afternoon.

The entire B's roster came together for the initiative which was started by legendary defenseman Ray Bourque during his playing days and has been spearheaded by Patrice Bergeron in recent years. For rookie Danton Heinen, it was his first opportunity to take part in the holiday tradition.

"You walk in there and their faces light up, it's pretty cool to see," said Heinen. "They're going through some tough times, but if we can come and take their minds off it for just a second we have fun doing it. You even see the parents and how happy and appreciative they are, it's not only them, we get a lot out of it too. The kids are fighting and they're an inspiration."

McQuaid Won't Be Changing His Hard-Nosed Style

Veteran defenseman says injury won't lead to any alteration in his game

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - Adam McQuaid has never been shy to put his body on the line. Time and again throughout his nine-year career, the rugged blue liner has sacrificed himself for the betterment of the Bruins - at times costing himself valuable playing time.

As has been the case for the last two months. McQuaid has been sidelined since Oct. 19 against the Vancouver Canucks when he acted as a human shield and blocked two shots with his leg, leading to a broken right fibula.

DeBrusk Had 'That Moment' Against Islanders

Rookie had defining sequence with fight, deciding goal

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - Jake DeBrusk has never been considered your average goal scorer. His abilities range far beyond what a typical top-six winger usually provides.

Among those attributes is a bit of an ornery side. And for the first time in his young career, the full wrath of that side came out during the second period of the Bruins' 3-1 victory over the New York Islanders on Saturday night.

Stingy Defensive Effort Paces B's Over Islanders

Rask makes 30 saves for fourth straight win

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - The Bruins knew they had their work cut out for them on Saturday night. Boston was getting its first look at rookie sniper Matthew Barzal, who has joined an already potent New York Islanders lineup that includes John Tavares, Anders Lee, and Josh Bailey to form one of the NHL's best offensive attacks.

A strong defensive effort was needed from top to bottom. And that's exactly what the Bruins put forth.
