B's add depth & toughness with a pair of minor league D-Men

The Bruins announced today that they have signed Mike Egener and Ryan Stokes. It seems like the P-Bruins are looking to add some grit at the blue line.

Mike Egener
Egener is a big physical defenseman, who can also play wing. He has been plagued by injuries throughout his career and has missed significant time with shoulder and groin injuries. When healthy, Egener has shown that he isn't afraid to drop the gloves. In the 2004-2005 season with the Springfield Falcons, Egener accumulated 183 PIMs including 11 fighting majors in just 45 games.

Ryan Stokes
The Houston Press described Ryan Stokes as "a tough, physical defense man for the Houston Aeros, not afraid to pile up the penalty minutes or take on the other team's banger in a fight."

Both players will likely start the year in Providence.
