BOSTON, MA –
Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced today that the club has loaned forward Guillaume Lefebvre to the Providence Bruins for the AHL club’s game against the Portland Pirates today at 4:05 p.m. ET in Providence. Lefebvre was recalled by the Bruins yesterday on an emergency basis and played 11:01 in the club’s 4-1 loss in Phoenix last night.
Invited to Boston’s training camp on a tryout agreement, Lefebvre tallied one assist and 14 penalty minutes in five games for the Bruins this preseason. On September 26, the Bruins signed Lefebvre to a one-year contract, and on Monday, September 28 he was assigned to Providence.
With the Providence Bruins this season, Lefebvre has appeared in four games with 0-1-1 totals and 25 penalty minutes.
Last year with the AHL’s Springfield Falcons Lefebvre had 4-9-13 totals with 206 penalty minutes in 70 games played. Originally drafted by Philadelphia in 2000, Lefebvre was traded to the Pittsburgh organization where he appeared in 12 NHL games with 2-4-6 totals in 2002-03. In his career, the 28-year-old Lefebvre has appeared in 38 NHL games with 2-4-6 totals and 13 penalty minutes.
The Bruins are in action next when they host the Nashville Predators at the TD Garden on Wednesday, October 21 at 7:00 p.m. ET (TV:NESN, Radio: 98.5 The Sports Hub).
