WILMINGTON, Mass -- The Bruins started off their trade deadline day with a couple of in-house transactions, recalling defenseman Andrew Bodnarchuk and forward Max Sauve to the Bruins.
It's the second recall for Bodnarchuk, who went on the six-game road trip with the Bruins but didn't appear in any. That may change this week with Johnny Boychuk still feeling a little foggy a day after taking a thunderous Chris Neil body check on Saturday night.
It's the first call to the NHL for young Max Sauve, who scored 21 goals for the Providence Bruins last season. Sauve has been limited to 27 games because of a concussion he suffered earlier this season, but he has 3 goals in his last 4 games since returning to full strength.
Both players are expected to take part in Bruins practice Monday morning at Ristuccia Arena.
