Providence, RI - The Providence Bruins made a series of roster moves this week due to injuries at the NHL level. Four players were loaned to Boston, two were loaned to Providence from Boston, and one was recalled from the team's ECHL affiliate.

With Kevan Miller questionable for tonight’s Boston game, Rob O’Gara was recalled on an emergency basis today. O’Gara played three games with Providence this season and was a scratch from last night’s 5-2 win. The 24-year old defenseman has one assist this season with a +2 rating.

Goaltender Zane McIntyre was recalled from Providence on an emergency basis to Boston on October 19. McIntyre has compiled a 2-1-0 record this year with Providence with a 2.35 goals against average and .914 save percentage in three games. He was briefly sent back October 20, but again was recalled October 21 due to Tuukka Rask’s concussion. Taking his place was Dan Vladar, who was recalled to Providence from the team’s ECHL affiliate Atlanta Gladiators October 19. The 20-year-old Vladar played in eight games during the 2016-17 year for the Providence Bruins, though spent most of the year in Atlanta. Vladar opened 2017-18 as the P-Bruins backup goaltender and did not appear in their opening night win.

Kenny Agostino and Peter Cehlarik were recalled from loan by Boston on October 18, though Cehlarik was returned on October 19. Agostino came to the Bruins after a tremendous season with the Chicago Wolves where he scored 24 goals and 59 assist and won the AHL Most Valuable Player award. Cehlarik had a successful season last year with Providence appearing in 49 games where he put 20 goals and 18 assist during the year.

Danton Heinen was returned from loan by Boston on October 17, 2017 after skating with the team on October 11 against Colorado. Last season the 22-year old played eight games for Boston and 64 games with Providence adding 17 more AHL games played in the 2017 Calder Cup Playoffs. After skating with Boston for the first five games of the season, center Austin Czarnik was loaned to Providence on October 17.
