LEFEBVRE RETURNS TO PROVIDENCE
Forward was Health Scratch in Two Games for Boston
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. With the move, the P-Bruins have 23 players on their roster, including 13 forwards, eight defensemen and two goaltenders.
Lefebvre, 28, was recalled by Boston for the third time this season on October 22. He traveled with the team on its two-game road trip to Philadelphia and Ottawa but was a healthy scratch for both games. The winger was first recalled by Boston on October 17 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 and only Boston game to date.
In five games for the P-Bruins 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.
In his NHL career, Lefebvre has totaled six points (2g, 4a) and 13 PIM in 39 games for Boston, the Philadelphia Flyers and Pittsburgh Penguins. The eighth-year pro was originally selected by the Flyers 227th overall in the seventh round of the 2000 NHL Entry Draft.
Providence returns to action this weekend with three games, the first two on the road on Friday, October 30 against the Manchester Monarchs at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, October 31 versus Hartford at 7 p.m. The P-Bruins wrap up the weekend at home on Sunday, November 1 by hosting the Bridgeport Sound Tigers at 4:05 p.m. for a Family Game.
