The Bruins have recalled Trent Frederic from Providence (AHL) under emergency conditions.
With Lee Stempniak being sent back to Providence on Monday, the Bruins needed to add another forward to the roster before Tuesday’s game. Frederic will likely slide into the lineup as the third line centre with Charlie Coyle moving up to play the wing on the second line. Frederic has not recorded a point in 11 NHL games this season but has 20 (11G / 9A) in 45 AHL contests.
