The Boston Bruins will get an extended look at multiple prospects and newcomers in their preseason opener Sunday.

Head coach Jim Montgomery told reporters Friday that eight veterans, at most, will play against the New York Rangers at TD Garden. That proved to be the case when the Bruins announced their roster for Sunday.

Jake DeBrusk, Trent Frederic and A.J. Greer were notable players from last season who will dress for the preseason opener. Free-agent signings Morgan Geekie, James van Riemsdyk and Patrick Brown will make their Boston debuts.
