The Bruins recalled forward Jamie Tardif on an emergency basis Friday. He will be available to practice with the team on Friday and travel with the B’s to Toronto for Saturday’s game against the Maple Leafs.
The move comes a day after a rough Thursday night for the B’s in which both Shawn Thornton and Daniel Paille left the game due to various injuries. Updates on both players are expected on Friday.
In 39 games for Providence this season, Tardif leads the team with 21 goals, which is second in the AHL. He also has nine assists for a total of 30 points. The 28 year-old has never played an NHL game.
