As the teams prepare to settle into their hub cities, the league required final rosters to be submitted from each franchise.
The Bruins had two skaters too many, so cuts had to be made. The two players from the initial group who didn’t make the final roster were forwards Anton Blidh and Paul Carey.
It’s a tough break for those two. While they weren’t likely to get much ice time, it still must be hard to get all the way through this wacky training camp, only to get sent home right before the plane takes off.
Those cuts also mean the young guys like Jack Studnicka and Zach Senyshyn remain in the mix for playing time in the coming games.
2020 Bruins Playoff Roster
Patrice Bergeron, Anders Bjork, Charlie Coyle, Jake DeBrusk, Trent Frederic, Ondrej Kase, David Krejci, Karson Kuhlman, Sean Kuraly, Par Lindholm, Brad Marchand, Joakim Nordstrom, David Pastrnak, Nick Ritchie, Zach Senyshyn, Jack Studnicka, Chris Wagner
Brandon Carlo, Zdeno Chara, Connor Clifton, Matt Grzelcyk, Torey Krug, Jeremy Lauzon, Charlie McAvoy, John Moore, Urho Vaakanainen, Jakub Zboril
Jaroslav Halak, Maxime Lagace, Tuukka Rask, Dan Vladar
So there’s your group! No real surprises here, but it will be interesting to see which (if any) of the young guys gets called upon when the games start.
