In Bruins news you can use:

  • Two more notable performances from the preseason so far have come from Jakub Lauko and Jake DeBrusk. HockeyBuzz
  • Zach Senyshyn has learned to be handy, and not just in front of the net. CBS Boston
  • Potpourri- Jakub Lauko may have scored on Braden Holtby and stood up to T.J. Oshie, but he also took some penalties. Dan Vladar has earned consideration as Tuukka Rask’s successor. First cuts from camp will send a bunch of players to junior, the AHL, or entirely home. Boston Herald
  • Survivors of this first round of cuts include these notable youngsters. Might they even make the team out of camp? WEEI
  • Next up? The Red Wings host the Bruins tomorrow at 7:00PM, then Flyers welcome the Bruins on Monday, September 24th. 98.5 The Sports Hub

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • In news of former Bruins: Adam McQuaid left Boston so suddenly, but wants to say a proper goodbye and thank you. How did he famously manage to be so tough on ice, and yet kind in person? He credits his mothers advice- to always remember that playing in the NHL “is what I did, not who I was.” (Hard paywall) The Athletic
  • Referee Wes McCauley is held in high regard by NHL players for mostly getting it right, being quick to own up when he doesn’t, and offering clear explanations. And oh, that personality! Boston Herald Bonus- enjoy some Best of Wes in action and mic’ed up, including his chat with Tuukka Rask during the 2016 IIHF World Championship. (Video, 7:07) YouTube
  • Max Domi has recieved a match penalty and will now speak to the NHL DOPS about sucker-punching Aaron Ekblad. The regular season has not even begun yet. Welp. TSN
