Forward Joins P-Bruins from Quad City Flames

Providence, RI - The Providence Bruins, in their 17th season in the American Hockey League, announced that right wing Jonathan Tremblay has been loaned to the P-Bruins from the Quad City Flames. With the move, Providence has 25 players on its roster, including 14 forwards, nine defensemen and two goaltenders.

Tremblay, 24, began the year with Quad City, going scoreless in five games for the Flames before suiting up for four Central Hockey League contests for the Wichita Thunder, where he totaled 14 penalty minutes. The fifth-year forward spent parts of the last two seasons in the AHL with the Worcester Sharks, amassing 42 PIM and his only career AHL point with an assist in 20 games. Providence will be Tremblay's ninth team after additional time spent in the AHL for the Cleveland Barons, as well as the ECHL's Fresno Falcons, Toledo Storm and Johnstown Chiefs. He also appeared in the United Hockey League for the Quad City Mallards and Kalamazoo Wings.

The native of Fauquier, Ontario, has played in 185 career games, scoring two goals, registering eight assists and adding 393 PIM. Prior to turning pro, Tremblay spent three years with the Acadie-Bathurst Titan of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, where he had 553 PIM in 124 games. The right wing played for the Titan in 2002-03 with Boston Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron.

Tremblay was drafted by the San Jose Sharks 201st overall in the seventh round of the 2003 National Hockey League Entry Draft.
