Hey, Bruins fans, Pasta is back!

  • Why haven't the Bruins called up David Pastrnak following his stint at the World Junior Championship?[WEEI]

  • Wait, nevermind! Pastrnak is headed to Boston as Adam McQuaid has just been placed on injured reserve.[@DJ_Bean]

  • Was the hit on McQuaid the problem, or the lack of response to it by teammates (or even on-ice officials?)[HockeyBuzz]

  • Before you grab your pitchforks, D.J. Bean explains why it is hasty to jump to the conclusion that Kevan Miller is a dud.[WEEI]

  • McQuaid's status may be uncertain, but cheer up- Patrice Bergeron will rightfully take his place representing the Bruins at the NHL All-Star Game.[PatriotLedger]

  • In the absence of David Krejci, Ryan Spooner has done a credible job while logging big minutes.[BruinsDaily]

  • Brandon Carlo, who impressed at the WJC for Team USA, is poised to be the heir apparent of Zdeno Chara.[CausewayCrowd]

  • Chara spoke at length about his early years in hockey, the sacrifices he made as a young player when others were not so sure of him, and how he finally developed his skills as captain, having learned from some of the best.[SportsIllustrated]

  • And dive into a photo gallery of classic Ray Bourque photos from the Sports Illustrated vault, including one of a check on Jay Pandolfo.[SportsIllustrated]

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • The Go Fund Me initiative for the Boston Pride's Denna Laing is on hold for the moment, but received a strong response within 24 hours.[TheBostonGlobe]

  • There were a number of big trades around the NHL, resulting from months of negotiations...[TSN] Mike Richards has emerged from under his legal cloud to sign with the Capitals...[TSN]...and Ryan Johansen has been swapped for Seth Jones...[TheHockeyNews]...while Vincent Lecavalier and Luke Schenn are off to Los Angeles, where Lecavalier will take one last shot at a cup before retiring this summer, foregoing two years remaining on his contract.[TheNewYorkTimes]

  • Kirk Luedeke is looking ahead to the 2016 NHL Entry Draft along with Reed Duthie, and they have a few OHL players in their sights.[ScoutingPost]

  • The '90's called, and they want you to remember the best NHL team Starter jackets of the era.[BarDown]

  • One 90-year-old rec league player is still at the rink three times a week, and is still holding out hopes for the Maple Leafs.[BarDown]
