The Bruins have announced that Zach Hamill and Brad Marchand have been assigned to Providence, trimming the Bruins roster to 22 players. Hamill and Marchand both impressed and show they have great potential in the NHL. If an injury occurs, expect to see one of them getting the first call.
With the demotion of two players, that means the Bruins roster is ready for opening night. It also indicates that one, or both, of Steve Begin and David Krejci are ready to return to action for the season opener.
