Bruins call up forward Florek
By Joe McDonald
BOSTON -- The Bruins have recalled forward Justin Florek on an emergency basis from Providence of the AHL.
He's eligible to play Saturday against the Winnipeg Jets at TD Garden. This is his first NHL recall and comes after forward Jordan Caron came to the rink Saturday morning with a stiff back, according to Bruins coach Claude Julien.
Florek, 23, has played 34 games for the P-Bruins this season, recording nine goals and 11 assists for 20 points, including a plus-11 rating.
The Bruins drafted Florek in the fifth round (135th overall) in the 2010 NHL entry draft. He played four years (2008-2012) at Northern Michigan University.
