Providence, RI - The Providence Bruins, in their 17th season in the American Hockey League, announced that left wing Mark Bomersback and defenseman Brett Motherwell have been released from their Professional Tryout Agreements. With the moves, the P-Bruins have 23 players on their roster, including 13 forwards, eight defensemen and two goaltenders.

Bomersback, 26, dressed in nine games for Providence, scoring one goal on October 19 at the Portland Pirates. The second-year forward, signed by the P-Bruins on October 8, spent last season between the AHL's Iowa Stars and the Idaho Steelheads of the ECHL.
