After he was spotted on the ice at Warrior Tuesday morning, the Bruins confirmed that Jakub Zboril has been recalled from Providence.

The 21-year-old defenseman appears to be up on a standard recall, so he can play as the team wants.

Per the Bruins, Brandon Carlo didn't skate this morning, while Urho Vaakanainen, Charlie McAvoy and Kevan Miller all did non-practice work.

Miller appears to be closest to returning:

The Bruins didn't return Jeremy Lauzon to Providence, so they have a spare defenseman.

In all likelihood, Zboril is being brought on the trip in case someone gets hurt; having a guy with you spares the cross-country flight and gives the team flexibility.

He has four points in 13 games for Providence, and has battled a few injuries since the preseason.
