– As recognition for his prolific first half production, Carter Camper
was the only Providence Bruin to be selected for the AHL All-Star game.
Camper, who leads the P-Bruins with 38 points (14-24-38), will now have a chance to showcase his talents at the NHL level after being called up to the Boston Bruins today.
Four days after GM Peter Chiarelli announced that Rich Peverley
will be out for 4-6 weeks (MCL), it comes as no surprise another forward was brought up for the remaining three games of the six-game road trip.
After completing his senior season with Miami (Ohio) University March 26, 2011, Camper signed with the Bruins April 7 and played three games with Providence, picking up a goal and an assist.
Camper, who has played 53 games with Providence this season, had a decorated career at Miami.
He scored a total of 69 goals and had 114 assists for 183 points over 156 games, and in his senior season he ranked third in the nation with 12 power play goals.
The Cleveland, Ohio native was also third in the nation in assists (38) and points (57), while finishing as a finalist for the Hobey Baker award.
Camper will join the Bruins for their game against the St. Louis Blues Wednesday, and he will practice with the team Tuesday. --- Anthony Gulizia
