The Bruins have recalled defenseman Jeff Penner and forward Zach
Hamill from the Providence Bruins (AHL). Both players
will join the team for the trip to Washington, D.C., and be available for Sunday’s game against the Capitals, according to general manager Peter Chiarelli.
This is the first recall to Boston for Hamill, 21, who was selected by the Bruins in the first round (eighth overall) of the 2007 draft.
Penner, 22, was signed by Boston as a free agent in March
2008 after spending the 2007-08 season at the University of
Alaska-Fairbank. He made his NHL debut on March 9 against the Maple Leafs.
