The Bruins are digging a little deeper into their forward depth now with Zach Senyshyn getting called up from Providence for the game Tuesday night in Montreal.
The B’s placed Par Lindholm (upper body) on injured reserve as he’s been out for 10 days with his current injury and remains out along with Karson Kuhlman (leg), Joakim Nordstrom (infection) and David Backes (upper body).
Senyshyn, 22, has two goals and three points in 12 games for the P-Bruins after scoring a goal in two NHL games with the Black and Gold last season. He'll undoubtedly bring a little more skill, speed and finish should there be a need for that up front.
The Bruins already have Anders Bjork and Cameron Hughes up as AHL reinforcements, so it remains to be seen how Senyshyn will be utilized in the lineup. Senyshyn was part of the infamous 2015 draft class for the Bruins where they selected Jakub Zboril, Jake DeBrusk and Senyshyn with three consecutive selections in the first round.
They've seen both Zboril and Senyshyn experience fits and starts in their development. Senyshyn has averaged 13 goals and 25 points in each of his first two seasons in Providence and was a fairly early cut from NHL training camp after not pushing very hard this fall for a job in Boston on an admittedly packed NHL roster.
