The Boston Bruins have reassigned right wing Brian Ferlin to the Providence Bruins of the American Hockey League. The 22 year-old Jacksonville, Florida native has played in seven National Hockey League games with the Bruins, only registering one assist.
In his rookie season in Providence, the 6’-2” 209 pound winger has appeared in 47 games, and has contributed 9-7-16 totals, a minus 10 with the Bruins top minor-league affiliate. The Providence Bruins are currently in third in the AHL’s Atlantic Division, and are seated in the seventh position in the Eastern Conference with a 35-23-7-2 record, and are tied with the Hartford Wolf Pack, at 79 points.
Ferlin was selected by the Bruins in the fourth round (121st overall) in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft while he was playing his collegiate hockey at Cornell University, where he appeared in 92 games in three seasons in the Eastern College Athletic Conference posting 31-41-72 numbers. On April 14, 2014 Ferlin and the Boston Bruins agreed on a two-year entry-level contract.
