VLADAR ASSIGNED TO ATLANTA
Providence, RI – The Boston Bruins today assigned Providence goaltender Dan Vladar to the Atlanta Gladiators of the ECHL. This will be his second stint with Atlanta this season after he started the 2016-17 season with the club.
Vladar made his AHL debut this season on October 26 in a 2-1 OT road loss to the Toronto Marlies. Just two days later, he picked up his first AHL victory in a 4-2 win against the Utica Comets. He owns a 3-0-3 record with a 2.84 GAA and a 91.4 save percentage in six games for the P-Bruins this year. His services were called upon in Providence when both Zane McIntyre and Malcolm Subban were recalled to Boston, leaving Providence without a goaltender.
The 19-year old native of the Czech Republic was originally drafted by the Boston Bruins 75th overall in the 3rd Round of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft and signed a three-year entry-level contract that started at the beginning of the 2016-17 season. He returns to Atlanta where he owns a 1-0-1 record with a 2.88 GAA and a 90.9 save percentage in two games played.
