The Bruins recalled Zach Hamill from Providence on an emergency basis on Wednesday evening. Hamill, 23, will be present for Thursday's morning skate and could play against the Oilers Thursday night.
This move serves as insurance in case Rich Peverley is unable to play. Peverley missed Monday's game, but returned to practice Wednesday and is day-to-day with an undisclosed injury. With Daniel Paille likely out due surgery on his broken nose, Benoit Pouliot already figures to be in the lineup.
