LARMAN BACK FROM BOSTON

Forward has Appeared in Four NHL Games this 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 assigned forward Drew Larman to Providence. With the move, the P-Bruins have 24 players on their roster, including 15 forwards, seven defensemen and two goaltenders.

Larman, 24, has enjoyed two recalls to Boston this season, going scoreless in four games overall while averaging roughly eight minutes of ice-time per contest. The undrafted center was first recalled by the parent Bruins on January 18, making his Boston debut that afternoon against the Ottawa Senators. In Providence this season, Larman has appeared in 43 games with nine points, including five goals and four assists.

Prior to signing with Boston on July 13, 2009, 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. The fifth-year pro enjoyed previous NHL experience with the Florida Panthers, dressing for 22 games with three points (2g, a) from 2006-08. In his career, the Canton, Michigan, native has suited up for 296 games between the regular season and playoffs, amassing 106 points (55g, 51a).

Providence returns to action with three games next weekend, beginning Friday against the Manchester Monarchs for T-Shirt Night at 7:05 p.m. The shirts are free to the first 2,500 fans in attendance. The P-Bruins travel to face the Springfield Falcons on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. for the first of a home-and-home series as Providence then hosts Springfield on Sunday at 4:05 p.m. for Kids Hat Night. The kids hats are free to the first 1,000 kids age 12 and under.
