Forward Appeared in 31 Games for Providence

Providence, RI - The Providence Bruins, in their 18th year in the American Hockey League, announced that they have released forward John Lammers from his Professional Tryout Agreement. With the move, the P-Bruins have 21 players on their roster, including 12 forwards, eight defensemen and two goaltenders.

Lammers, 24, joined Providence on January 13 and went on to appear in 31 games for the P-Bruins, registering eight goals, nine assists and a plus-six rating. He made his Providence debut on January 15 at the Bridgeport Sound Tigers and later had his best game as a member of the P-Bruins on February 26 at the Binghamton Senators, recording a hat trick on seven shots and a plus-four rating. Lammers also enjoyed a four-game point-streak with Providence from March 5-12, tallying four assists.

Prior to signing with Providence, Lammers suited up for 25 games with the ECHL's Alaska Aces, where he has totaled 35 points, including 20 goals. The fourth-year pro also spent an 11-game scoreless stint with the AHL's Manitoba Moose this year, spending roughly one month with the club.

Lammers was selected 86th overall in round three of the 2004 National Hockey League Entry Draft by the Dallas Stars.
