Center Earns First NHL Promotion of Season

Providence, RI - The Providence Bruins, in their 18th year in the American Hockey League, announced that the National Hockey League's Boston Bruins have recalled forward Drew Larman from Providence on an emergency basis. Larman will be available for Boston's game against the Ottawa Senators this afternoon. With the move, the P-Bruins have 25 players on their roster, including 15 forwards, eight defensemen and two goaltenders.

Larman, 24, is in his fifth professional season and first in the Bruins organization after signing with Boston on July 13, 2009. The undrafted center has appeared in all but one of Providence's 44 games this season, recording nine points, including five goals and four assists. This is his first recall to Boston after previous NHL experience with the Florida Panthers. Larman enjoyed parts of two seasons with the Panthers from 2006-08, appearing in 22 games with three points (2g, a).

Prior to signing with Boston, Larman spent the majority of his first four pro seasons with the Rochester Americans, twice winning the team's McCulloch Trophy for outstanding community service. In his career, the Canton, Michigan, native has suited up for 292 games between the regular season and playoffs, amassing 106 points (55g, 51a).

Providence returns to action next weekend with two games, beginning Friday at 7:05 p.m. against the Lowell Devils for Dunkin' Donuts Mug Night. Mugs are free to the first 3,000 fans in attendance. After an off-day on Saturday, the P-Bruins host the Springfield Falcons on Sunday at 4:05 p.m. for Kids T-Shirt Night with shirts free to the first 1,000 kids 12 and under.
