Kuhlman has been recalled from Providence (AHL) and will play on Thursday.
Kuhlman, who has 12 goals and 14 assists (26 points) in 53 games with Providence this season, will replace Jake DeBrusk (lower-body) in the lineup on Thursday. Kuhlman has added one goal and one assist in his first four career NHL games with Boston.
DeBrusk (lower-body) is not expected to play Thursday.
DeBrusk is battling a bit of a lower-body injury so he will be scratched vs. the Panthers. Karson Kuhlman was been recalled and is expected to replace him on the second line.
Kuhlman will draw into the Bruins lineup Saturday.
