MARTIN ST. PIERRE CLEARS WAIVERS
All-Star Center Joins Providence
Providence, RI - The Providence Bruins, the 2007-08 regular season champions of the American Hockey League, announced that center Martin St. Pierre has cleared waivers from the National Hockey League's Boston Bruins. Providence now has 28 players in its camp, including 15 forwards, 10 defensemen and three goaltenders.
St. Pierre, 25, is entering his fifth pro season and first with Boston after being acquired in a trade from the Chicago Blackhawks for Pascal Pelletier on July 24, 2008. The three-time AHL All-Star forward has registered 331 points (91g, 240a) in 309 pro games, including four points (g, 3a) in 21 NHL contests with Chicago. St. Pierre spent most of last season with the AHL's Rockford Ice Hogs, notching 88 points (21g, 67a) in 69 games to lead the Hogs in scoring and finish second in the AHL in both points and assists. The Second Team AHL All-Star also added 14 playoff points (2g, 12a) in 12 contests. His regular season totals were just shy of the career-best 27 goals, 72 assists and 99 points he posted the previous season with the Norfolk Admirals. The Embrun, Ontario, native began his pro career with the ECHL's Greenville Grrrowl and Edmonton Roadrunners of the AHL in 2004-05 after finishing up a four-year junior career with the Guelph Storm. While in the OHL, the undrafted forward scored 320 points (108g, 212a) in 257 games.
