Bruins recall Czech forward Pastrnak @NHL

Forward David Pastrnak was recalled by the Boston Bruins on Tuesday.

Pastrnak, who was playing for the Providence Bruins (American Hockey League), was on temporary duty with the Czech Republic's Under-20 team, playing in the IIHF World Junior Championship. He had one goal and six assists to lead the Czechs in scoring in their run to a loss in the quarterfinals.

Pastrnak will practice with Boston on Tuesday and be available for the game Wednesday against the Pittsburgh Penguins (8 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TVA).

It is Pastrnak's second stint with the Bruins. The 25th pick in the 2014 NHL Draft appeared in five games earlier this season, making his NHL debut against the Penguins on Nov. 24. His only NHL point, an assist, came Dec. 1 against the Anaheim Ducks.

In 24 games with Providence, Pastrnak scored 10 goals and 27 points with a plus-14 rating. His 10 goals and 27 points lead Providence, while his 17 assists rank second the team to Alexander Khokhlachev's 18.
