Boston Bruins Make Unexpected Call-Up of Forward From Providence Prior to Faceoff Against Devils

The Bruins brought up a forward from Providence after Pavel Zacha got injured on Saturday.

Prior to their game against the New Jersey Devils on Wednesday, Boston made the decision to bring in Jesper Boqvist. Zacha had to leave during Saturday's victory over the Arizona Coyotes, leaving the B's with a shortage and resulting in Matthew Poitras being benched in the third period. The matter has been settled between the rookie and head coach Jim Montgomery, and Poitras is hoping for an opportunity for redemption in Wednesday's game.

Danton Heinen and Oskar Steen were entrusted with more responsibility in the absence of Zacha during the third period of Saturday's game.

Boqvist participated in a single game for Boston in the ongoing season. The 24-year-old has skated in a total of 190 NHL games across his career, split between Boston and New Jersey, amassing 28 goals and 27 assists, totaling 55 points. Boqvist was drafted by the Devils in the second round of the 2017 NHL Entry Draft.
