Is it possible he makes the team?


His previous season was...rough, to put it mildly. He started his 2018-19 in Florida, where he wasn’t good, and then got traded to Edmonton in December, where he was even worse, got concussed, and spent the rest of the year either on the bench or on the mend, with his highlights largely being fights. His season ended for good in February after 35 games on two awful teams.

To say his season went poorly would be an understatement.

But for now, welcome Alex Petrovic to the Boston Bruins!
