The Boston Bruins made news on Monday morning. The club recalled veteran defenseman John Moore from AHL Providence and assigned forward Brendan Gaunce to Providence, the club announced on Monday morning. Moore has yet to play this season after surgery following the Stanley Cup Final in June. Gaunce was recalled last week and made his Bruins debut on Wednesday in Ottawa.
Gaunce collected his first point with the Bruins in the win. He had an assist on Zdeno Chara’s game-winning goal in the 2-1 victory. So far with Providence, the veteran has produced eleven points in 14 games. His first game with the Bruins was the 118th of his NHL career.
Moore was assigned to Providence on a conditioning stint on Sunday. Just hours later, the veteran suited up as the Bruins battled the reigning Calder Cup Champion Charlotte Checkers. Moore collected an assist and was +2 in the Bruins’ victory. Moore skated in 61 games with the Bruins in his first campaign with the club in 2018-19. He registered 13 points in the first of a five-year contract he signed on July 1st, 2018.
