The Boston Bruins announced their latest round of cuts Sunday afternoon, trimming their training camp roster by 12 players.
The most notable players cut were goaltender Malcolm Subban (assigned to AHL’s Providence Bruins), and 2015 first-round picks Jake DeBrusk (sent to WHL’s Swift Current Broncos) and Jakub Zboril (sent to QMJHL’s Saint John Sea Dogs).
Forwards Noel Acciari, Anthony Camara, Brandon DeFazio, Justin Hickman and Ben Sexton were sent to Providence Bruins training camp. Defensemen Chris Breen and Ben Youds, as well as goaltender Zane McIntyre also will take part in P-Bruins camp.
Brandon Carlo, one of Boston’s second-round picks in the 2015 draft, was sent back to the WHL’s Tri-City Americans. The 18-year-old defenseman signed an entry-level contract with the B’s earlier in the week.
Subban and McIntyre’s departure from camp means the competition for the Bruins backup goalie job is between Jonas Gustavsson and Jeremy Smith. Gustavsson is in camp on a professional tryout (PTO).
Boston’s next preseason game is Monday night at TD Garden against the Detroit Red Wings.
