David Warsofsky has been one of the Providence Bruins’ best players, and that, along with a roster technicality, has earned him a call-up to the big club.
The Bruins recalled the young defenseman Wednesday afternoon, general manager Peter Chiarelli announced after practice. Kevan Miller will be sent down to make room for Warskofsky on the roster. Miller isn’t necessarily being sent down because of his play, though. Miller has played nine games since being recalled, and he would have to clear waivers before being sent down if he were to play at least 10 games.
Adam McQuaid isn’t quite ready to return yet, so sending down Miller and recalling Warsofsky satisfies all needs and addresses any sort of roster concerns.
Warsosfsky has been arguably the P-Bruins’ most effective defenseman this season. The Boston University product and Marshfield, Mass., native has two goals and fourteen assists in 26 games with the Baby B’s this season. The 23-year-old is also a plus-10 in those games. Warsofsky is already in the middle of his fourth professional season, and he’d be in line to make his NHL debut.
Chiarelli also announced the Bruins are sending Craig Cunningham back to Providence. He made his NHL debut Tuesday night against Calgary.
