Breaking...Looks like the Pastrnak era will begin in Boston. Headed up I-95 to join the big club & maybe make NHL debut vs Pittsburgh.— Kirk Luedeke (@kluedeke29) November 23, 2014
Pastrnak, Boston’s first-round pick (25th overall) in 2014, has five goals and 18 points in 17 AHL games this season.
Update: The recall has been confirmed on the AHL’s transactions page.
It’s Pastrnak’s first season in North America after spending the past two seasons in Sweden’s second-tier professional league.
Boston reassigned forwards Jordan Caron and Matt Lindblad on Sunday.
Additionally, defenseman Zdeno Chara (knee) was placed on long-term injured reserve.
