P-Bruins Paul Carey Staying Ready In Case Of Recall



Paul Carey

Charlie Coyle isn’t the only member of the Boston Bruins organization that hails from Weymouth, Massachusetts. Former Boston College star and current Providence Bruins forward Paul Carey is also from the hockey hotbed outside of Boston. Carey, a 31-year-old veteran, just completed his second season with the Bruins organization.

Carey got into just one NHL game this season, going pointless and registering a -1 rating on November 16th. With Providence in the AHL, Carey was an impact offensive player. He scored 22 goals in 60 games for the powerhouse Bruins.

He spoke to the Boston media via Zoom earlier this week. Carey discussed the possibility of being a ‘Black Ace’ this summer in the NHL. He also addressed the AHL season being ended by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“It was disappointing that our season came to an end this year. That doesn’t mean that I’m unemployed or don’t have a purpose right now,” Paul Carey told reporters regarding the first place Bruins not getting a chance to play for the Calder Cup.

He didn’t get a chance to chase the Calder Cup. That said, he might get the chance to chase the Stanley Cup. Carey is one player under consideration for a roster spot when NHL rosters are expanded this summer.

Carey isn’t sure if he’ll get the chance to play. He’s staying ready regardless.

“I’m going to continue to get ready for my next game whether that is July, August or September or in 2021, I don’t know,” Carey said. “But it’s on me to treat every day as if I would be at the rink or I’d be in a playoff run right now. I’m trying to stay as ready as I can and try and get in as many workouts and be in game shape when that game may come.”
