After making seven cuts from camp on Sunday, the Bruins continued to trim their training camp roster down on Tuesday, sending goaltender Daniel Vladar to the American Hockey League's Providence Bruins.

Competing with Kyle Keyser for the No. 4 spot on the organizational depth chart in net, the 22-year-old Vladar made two relief appearances in the Boston net this preseason, and surrendered six goals on 29 shots (a .793 save percentage).

It was hardly the preseason the 6-foot-5 netminder wanted to have from a statistical standpoint, but Vladar can take comfort in knowing his last stops of camp were a pair of big ones, as Vladar stopped Kevin Hayes on a breakaway and then again on his second-chance opportunity in overtime of the Black and Gold's 4-3 win over the Flyers on Monday night.

Vladar, drafted 75th overall in 2015, went 13-17-1 with an .898 save percentage in 31 games for the P-Bruins last year.

With Vladar gone, Keyser and Maxime Lagace remain in camp as the options behind Tuukka Rask and Jaroslav Halak.
