In Bruins news:

  • The biggest open secret for the Bruins is the tight situation they find themselves in defensively. Take one more look at the narrowing available options. Scouting Post
  • Cautionary tale: Charlie McAvoy was, in hindsight, the one that got away for another NHL team that picked a different player in his round assuming he’d still be on the table later. Rumor has it a known NHLer will receive an invitation to Bruins training camp. One young Bruin appears to have what it takes to make the team out of camp .Matthew Benning has pulled a Blake Wheeler, and we wish him well. Scouting Post
  • Remember Zach Senyshyn? He’s back from a bout of mono, and looks more like what the Bruins hoped he’d be. Boston Herald His motivation is clear. Today’s Slapshot
  • David Backes knew that the "C" on his sweater was no guarantee that he would stay in St. Louis once it was clear that the Blues would be shaking things up. The Boston Globe
  • It was the end of an era as Backes’ successor was named. Potpourri from the weekend news includes Kim Brandvold’s comments on Dawn Braid’s new job with the Panthers. As the Bruins prepare to take to Warrior Arena practice ice, a quip from Gerry Cheevers describes one former Bruins practice facility.

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • It was a long journey back to St. Louis for one of the Blues’ original pair of proposed uniform sweaters. The new owner is treating it with more respect than he and his brothers showed a pair of Terry Sawchuk gloves they received as children. St. Louis Post-Dispatch
  • Will he or won’t he? Former Bruin Vladimir Sobotka finally appears to be ready to return to the Blues after the World Cup of Hockey. Puck Daddy
  • Biosteel #CAMP was good for laughs and a chance to see some familiar faces in summertime action on ice. Malcolm Subban weighed in on his brother’s move to Nashville. Here’s what you missed: Trash talking, drills, and lots of video. Sportsnet
