Connor Clifton called back up to the Bruins

New, comments

His conditioning stint is over, he’s finally healthy, and that leaves quite a bit of interest in what happens next...

It appears that Cliffy Hockey once again is making his way to Boston after his conditioning stint in Providence, per Mark Divver:

On IR since late December thanks to an upper body injury, Clifton’s conditioning began on the 16th where he and the Providence Bruins plowed through their last five opponents, including a 7-4 beatdown of the Hershey Bears.

Of course, now Boston already has 23 players on their roster, so the question becomes...what happens next? Send Kuhlman and Lauzon down to Providence so they’re AHL playoffs-eligible then call them back up before the game against Calgary? A trade? The possibilities are endless.

Regardless, Welcome back to full health, Connor!
