The teenager won't get NHL time just yet.

Training camp ended and the regular season began with Urho Vaakanainen just kind of...there.

He wasn't playing, but the team didn't announce where they were sending him. He was the mystery man.

The mystery ended today, as the Bruins announced they'd assigned Vaakanainen to Providence.

The kid will likely get big minutes down there, and could see a call-up later in the season.
