BOSTON — The Bruins organization is one that prides itself on organizational depth, and that depth has been no more prevalent than it has been this year.
The Bruins made yet another roster move Saturday morning when they recalled forward Justin Florek from the Providence Bruins of the AHL on an emergency basis. Florek is eligible to play Saturday afternoon when the Bruins take on the Winnipeg Jets at TD Garden.
The 23-year-old has been one of Providence’s most efficient players this season with nine goals and 11 assists to go along with a plus-11 rating for the P-Bruins. The Michigan native is a big winger, standing 6-foot-4 and weighing in at a shade under 200 pounds. Florek was the fifth-round draft pick of the Bruins in 2010 out of Northern Michigan University where he played four seasons before turning pro.
If Florek were to play Saturday afternoon against the Jets, he would become the sixth player to make his NHL debut with the Bruins this season.
