WILD REASSIGNED TO READING

Defenseman Appeared in Seven Games for P-Bruins

Providence, RI - The Providence Bruins, in their 19th season in the American Hockey League, tonight announced that the National Hockey League's Boston Bruins have reassigned defenseman Cody Wild to the Reading Royals of the ECHL. He is expected to make his Royals debut on Dec. 19 at Wheeling.

Wild, 23, appeared in seven games for Providence to start the season, tallying one assist along with a minus-three rating.

The native of North Providence, RI, was acquired by Boston from Edmonton in a trade for forward Matt Marquardt on Mar. 2, 2010, making Providence Wild's third team of the 2009-10 season. Wild appeared in 18 contests for the P-Bruins, registering three assists, and also chipped in 14 helpers in 37 games for Springfield and one assist in four outings for the ECHL's Stockton. In his professional career, he has scored 43 points, including 37 assists, in 144 games.

The fourth-year pro began his career late in the 2007-08 campaign after finishing three seasons at Providence College. Wild was selected by the Oilers 140th overall in round five of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft.

The P-Bruins' roster is now comprised of 23 players, including 14 forwards, seven defensemen and two goaltenders.
