LEFEBVRE RETURNS TO PROVIDENCE
Forward Back with P-Bruins after One-Day Recall
Providence, RI - The Providence Bruins, in their 18th year in the American Hockey League, announced that the National Hockey League's Boston Bruins have assigned forward Guillaume Lefebvre to Providence. Lefebvre was recalled on an emergency basis on Sunday evening following Providence's 7-2 win over the Portland Pirates. With the move, the P-Bruins have 22 players on their roster, including 12 forwards, eight defensemen and two goaltenders.
Lefebvre, 28, returns to Providence after a one-day call-up to Boston. The veteran winger was first recalled by Boston on Saturday and traveled to Arizona for the parent Bruins' 4-1 loss to the Phoenix Coyotes that evening. Lefebvre saw 11:01 of ice-time while going scoreless in his Bruins debut.
After being assigned to Providence Sunday morning, Lefebvre later appeared in the P-Bruins' victory over the Pirates and collected 17 penalty minutes. In five games for Providence this season, the native of Amos, Quebec, has registered one assist and 42 PIM. He appeared in his 400th professional game against the Hartford Wolf Pack on October 9. Lefebvre was invited to Boston's training camp on a tryout agreement and appeared in five preseason games before signing a one-year contract with the club on September 26.
Providence returns to action this weekend with two games as the P-Bruins host the Worcester Sharks on Friday, October 23 at 7:05 p.m. for Tote Bag Night, and then travel to face the Manchester Monarchs on Saturday, October 24 at 7 p.m. To purchase 2009-10 season tickets, Flex Tix or individual game tickets, please call the P-Bruins ticket office at (401) 273-5000 or log on to the team website at providencebruins.com.
