Don Sweeney and the Boston Bruins continued to inch their way down to their Opening Night roster Wednesday, cutting another 15 players from their training camp roster.
The moves started with the assigning of forwards Samuel Asselin, Matt Filipe, Jesper Froden, Curtis Hall, Cam Hughes, Joona Koppanen, Jakub Lauko, Zach Senyshyn, and Oskar Steen to Providence. They’ll be joined in P-Bruins camp by defensemen Jack Ahcan, Tyler Lewington, Brady Lyle, and Nick Wolff, along with goaltender Kyle Keyser, who were also cut from the team’s NHL training camp group on Wednesday.
There’s really not a shocking cut among the group. Jakub Lauko was at one point considered a potential dark horse to challenge for a spot on the Big B’s roster, but a lower-body injury limited him to just two games this preseason. Froden, a standout in the SHL last year, also had his moments, but failed to put up the points necessary to make it interesting.
In addition to the 14 assignments to the P-Bruin, the team also placed forward Steve Fogarty, who was injured in the team’s preseason opener against the Capitals, on waivers.
