BOSTON, MA - Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced today that the club has assigned center Yan Stastny to the Providence Bruins of the American Hockey League.
Stastny, a 24-year-old center, is in his second season with the Bruins after being acquired along with Marty Reasoner and a 2006 second round draft pick (Milan Lucic
) for Sergei Samsonov on March 9, 2006. He began the season in Boston and played in 11 games, tallying one assist, before being assigned to Providence on November 13. He was recalled to Boston on Thursday, November 16, but did not play in last night’s 2-1 overtime victory against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Last season Stastny played 17 games for Boston, scoring one goal and registering three assists. Although he did not appear in any regular season games in Providence, he did play in six post-season games last season, tallying five assists.
The Bruins are back in action tomorrow night at the TD Banknorth Garden when they square off against the Washington Capitals at 7:00 p.m. The game can be seen live on NESN and heard on WBZ 1030 AM. The Bruins then host the Florida Panthers on Monday, Nov. 20 at 7:00 p.m.
