According to the Bruins transaction page on the AHL website, David Pastrnak has been recalled after the David Krejci injury. However, Pastrnak was never loaned to the Czech Republic from the same page, which would have read "DEL Reassigned by Boston (NHL) to Czech Republic (WJC)", even if he was on the AHL roster, with William Nylander an example.
Bruins GM Don Sweeney had mentioned that Pastrnak would be made available to the WJC, barring an injury to a Bruin. Pastrnak played his first game there today, scoring a goal that was assisted by fellow Bruins prospect Jakub Zboril.
the Bruins will release Pastrnak for the World Junior Championships in Finland after the NHL's roster freeze is over on Monday, provided the team doesn't suffer any injuries in the interim "that would dictate otherwise,"
With Pastrnak on a conditioning stint, the Bruins had 24 players on their roster, which is why Pastrnak's conditioning stint could have become a regular demotion to clear a roster spot, keeping them at the 23 player maximum. This would necessitate a recall to the Bruins, and not a conclusion to his conditioning stint.
UPDATE: The Bruins have freed up a roster spot, for either Pastrnak or another forward to replace Krejci.
Krejci officially placed on IR, according to team website. Definitively out for the Winter Classic— steve conroy (@conroyherald) December 28, 2015
Have the Bruins decidet to tip the tarp on the Pastrnak Porsche? The official AHL site seems to think so.
