Bruins Shuffle Minor League Goalies, Matt Dalton Heads From Providence to Reading

The Bruins are doing a little bit of goalie shuffling, but none of it affects the current roster — yet.

Boston has reassigned goalie prospect Matt Dalton from the Providence Bruins of the AHL to the Reading Royals of the ECHL. To make room for Dalton, the organization moved goalie Adam Courchaine from Reading to the Alaska Aces of the ECHL.

Dalton, a second-year pro, played the first two periods of Providence's opening night 5-1 loss to Springfield. The 24-year-old gave up four goals on 16 shots in his only action of the season thus far.

This is not Dalton's first go-around with Reading. Last season, he was named the Royals' Most Valuable Player, Rookie of the Year and Fan's Choice after leading the team to the American Conference Finals.

Meanwhile, Courchaine appeared in just one game for the Royals this year, giving up four goals on nine shots in a 6-4 loss to the Trenton Devils on Oct. 17.

The Providence Bruins' roster is now comprised of 23 players, including 14 forwards, seven defensemen and two goalies.
