The Boston Bruins announced the roster for the 2019 Prospects Challenge that will take place September 6-9 at the HarborCenter in Buffalo, NY.
Joining the Bruins at the 2019 Prospects Challenge in Buffalo will be prospects from the New Jersey Devils, Pittsburgh Penguins and the host team Buffalo Sabres. This will be the fifth straight year the Bruins have participated in the prospects challenge. Each team will play three games throughout the weekend in a round-robin style tournament.
Those who have participated in the past for the Bruins in these challenges have seen time with the big club at some point during the season. With spots up for grabs this season, do not be surprised to see the same thing happen in the 2019-20 season.
