With Marchand injured, and the Bruins looking for goals, Vatrano could be a good call up to try and replace some of what Marchand brings to the table. Vatrano has 5 goals on 11 shots in the two games the Providence Bruins have played so far. Vatrano was signed as a college free agent last year out of U Mass Amherst.

And his third goal for the hat trick midway through the third period:

UPDATE: Vatrano scores again. He's been found money so far this year. Thanks to the Providence Bruins twitter, as the feed went down while he was scoring.
