Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli announced Monday night that defenseman Dougie Hamilton will remain with the Bruins all season and will not be returned to juniors.

Hamilton could have played five games in the NHL without a year being burned off his entry level deal, though Chiarelli had said prior to training camp that the team expected Hamilton to stick with the club all season.

According to multiple reports out of Carolina, Anton Khudobin was the first goaltender off the ice at Monday’s morning skate at PNC Arena, indicating that he will make his first start of the season Monday night against the Hurricanes.

WILMINGTON – Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid will not play Monday night against the Hurricanes due to personal reasons, Claude Julien said after the team’s practice Sunday at Ristuccia Arena.

Dougie Hamilton has heard the hip-hop anthem “Teach Me How To Dougie” a sickening amount of times. He’s heard it every way, from the original – released in 2010 by Cali Swag District – to the Johnny Boychuk locker room rendition. 



Zdeno Chara fired a wrist shot past Rick DiPietro with just under 13 minutes left in the third period to break a 2-2 tie, as the Bruins bounced back from their first loss of the season with a 4-2 win over the Islanders Friday night at TD Garden. Rookie sensation Dougie Hamilton added two assists and set up Boston’s fourth goal with a pretty outlet pass as the Garden crowd began to chant his name.

Dennis Seidenberg will participate in warmups prior to Friday night’s game against the Islanders and will be a game-time decision as he looks to return from a lower-body injury that has kept him out for the last two games.

“He’ll be game-time,” Claude Julien said after Friday’s morning skate. “I can tell you I’m more optimistic than pessimistic though, but again, game-time for the right reasons that we want to make sure that he is ready to go.”

WILMINGTON – Prior to this week, the last time Tuukka Rask played three full NHL games in a row was in the 2009-10 season. That will be a regular occurrence for the foreseeable future as he’s taken over the No.



WILMINGTON — The Bruins stayed off the ice Thursday at Ristuccia Arena, with Dennis Seidenberg not skating as he works his way back from a lower-body injury.

As much as B’s fans had to have wanted that second point Wednesday night, the truth is that the first three games of the 48-game season have presented a big test, and thus far they’re passing with a 2-0-1 record.

[Right: It took three games for the first “Yeah they lost, but…” column of the season. It’s been too long.] 



Marian Gaborik completed his hat trick in overtime Wednesday night, burying the rebound of his own breakaway bid to give the Rangers a 4-3 win over the Bruins.

Gaborik also scored twice in the first period, giving the Rangers a 2-0 lead before second-period goals from Brad Marchand and Milan Lucic tied the game. Forty seconds later, however, Taylor Pyatt beat Tuukka Rask to give the Rangers the lead until Nathan Horton tied it in the third with his first goal since suffering a season-ending concussion last Jan. 22.
