Happy Labor Day!
No article on this one just yet, but Katie Strang of Newsday is reporting that the Bruins, in addition to inviting a bunch of kids to rookie camp (goalie Jared DeMichiel, defenseman Charlie Dodero, and forwards Conor Stokes, Dylan Hood, Kyle MacKinnon, and Adam Presizniuk...hat-tip to Kirk Luedeke for that list), have invited former Washington Capitals captain Chris Clark to main camp.
Clark may not have a shot to crack the Bruins roster but he'll bring an extra bit of motivation for the bottom few players competing for one of those last few spots. Interesting move, to say the least. Fun side note - he's also a Clarkson graduate, which is where prospect Ben Sexton attends college.
After the jump, mostly Bruins stuff, for once! It's that time of year again, hoorah...Bruins News:
