The Boston Bruins will report for training camp later today at Warrior Ice Arena. The club announced the roster for camp late on Wednesday and they will now prepare for the 2019-20 NHL regular season. The team will speak with the media on Thursday afternoon but will not begin practices until Friday.
In addition to the expected players, the Bruins have a number of players participating in training camp on AHL contracts and professional tryouts. That includes veteran defender Alex Petrovic, whose PTO was first reported by Boston Hockey Now in August.
