The Boston Bruins made some news as they prepare to return from the All-Star break. The club recalled forward Karson Kuhlman and defenseman Jeremy Lauzon from AHL Providence.
Kuhlman played two games during the break with Providence, registering two goals. He scored both on January 24th against Lehigh Valley. Lauzon, meanwhile, also played in two games over the break. Although he went pointless in the two games, Lauzon finished with a +4 rating against Lehigh Valley and Hershey.
In 11 NHL games this season, Kuhlman has three assists. Those three points have all come in the last three games, with two assists on January 16th against the Penguins and another on January 21st against the Vegas Golden Knights. Kuhlman suffered a lower-body injury on October 19th in Toronto and did not return until almost three months later.
Lauzon has played two games in the NHL this season, scoring one goal and posting a +1 rating. He suited up on New Year’s Eve against the New Jersey Devils and again on January 21st against Vegas. In 45 AHL games this season, Lauzon has 13 points (1 g, 12 a) and a +22 rating.
Defenseman Connor Clifton (upper-body) also made news for the Bruins as he skated on his own Thursday morning. He is not expected to play this weekend.
The Bruins return to action tomorrow night when they visit the Winnipeg Jets. They’ll finish the two-game road trip on Saturday night when they make their lone visit to Minnesota to take on the Wild.
