Bruins announce four roster moves

Two players were sent to the Providence Bruins camp, one player was released from his professional tryout contract, and one player was placed on waivers for the purpose of assignment.

Defenseman Frederic Brunet and forward Brett Harrison were the two players who were sent down to Providence.

After he managed to score in two preseason games and play 29:59 of ice time in the two losses—the Tuesday game against the Buffalo Sabres and the Friday shootout loss to the Philadelphia Flyers—Brunet was somewhat of a surprise cut.

After his camp performance, the front office of the Bruins will probably be closely monitoring him.

Harrison’s move was not as shocking because he only saw the ice for 24:48 minutes in his two games.
Regretfully, he was not able to contribute a point to the scoreboard or alter the plus-minus rating.

It was Alex Chiasson, not Danton Heinen, who was released from his PTO.
As a journeyman forward, he seemed like a good fit, but it wasn’t meant to be—granted, it was just a PTO and there was no guarantee he would make the team.

Similar to Harrison, Chiasson was a -1 in the plus-minus rating but accomplished nothing to move the needle in the points column.

Michael DiPietro’s waiver claim was the most unexpected move made on Sunday, though.
In his lone game on Tuesday against the Sabres, DiPietro recorded 11 saves on 12 shots on goal, demonstrating good play.

It is likely that DiPietro will be assigned to Providence, where he will play the role of a “third” goalie.
