Yale's Rob O'Gara and Miami (Ohio)'s Sean Kuraly have wrapped up their respective senior seasons and appear set to join the Providence Bruins this week, according to reports from John Buccigross and Kirk Luedeke.

Kuraly was drafted by the Sharks in the fifth round in 2011, 133rd overall; O'Gara went in the fifth round that year as well, 151st overall to the Bruins. Kuraly was part of the trade that flipped goaltender Martin Jones to San Jose. He appeared in 36 games for Miami this season, putting up 6-17-23 totals; O'Gara appeared in 30 games for Yale, and had four goals and eight assists.

These signings along with Brandon Carlo coming from the WHL will bolster an already-strong P-Bruins roster; the team currently sits third in the Atlantic Division, and has three of the league's top fifteen scorers, including two of the top five in Seth Griffith and Alexander Khokhlachev.
