BOSTON, MA - Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced today that the club has assigned defenseman Andy Wozniewski to the Providence Bruins (American Hockey League).
On the Boston Bruins recent three game road trip, the 29-year-old Wozniewski played in the first two games against Chicago and Toronto and was a healthy scratch in the third game in Ottawa. His appearance against the Blackhawks marked Wozniewski’s first game in a Bruins uniform.
Wozniewski had skated in 29 games for the P-Bruins and recorded 6-17-23 totals before his December 15th recall to Boston.
He was signed by Boston as a free agent on September 9, 2009 after splitting last year between the AHL affiliates of the Penguins and Blues. The Buffalo Grove, Illinois native has tallied 2-10-12 totals and 81 penalty minutes in 79 career NHL games with the Bruins, Blues and the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Wozniewski was signed to his first pro contract with Toronto on May 27, 2004 and was a member of the Leafs organization until he signed as a free agent by the Blues on July 17, 2008. He was traded to Pittsburgh on March 4, 2009 before signing with the B’s as a free agent on September 9, 2009.
