The Bruins made another quick round of NHL training camp cuts following Monday night’s 3-2 overtime win over the Washington Capitals at TD Garden. Forward Craig Cunningham and defenseman David Warsofsky were both released to AHL training camp, and veteran defenseman Mike Moore was placed on waivers for the benefit of sending him to the Providence Bruins as well.

All three players acquitted themselves during their time in camp, and will be among the small group considered for promotions to the NHL level if injuries hit the Black and Gold roster during the year. The NHL camp roster is now down to 28 players, and it’s expected to be at least six players remaining to be cut from camp as they get ready to embark on a two-game road trip to Winnipeg and Saskatoon.

“There are quite a few guys in the mix. That’s some of the stuff I alluded to this morning and the other day by saying we’re going to have some tough decisions to make at the end,” said Claude Julien. “There’s no doubt those decisions will be made as a group; upper management, coaches involved, because everybody’s going to have an opinion and going to have to weigh pros and cons and everything else that goes with it.”

Players like Ryan Spooner, Kevan Miller, Jordan Caron, Nick Johnson, Dougie Hamilton, Matt Fraser and Niklas Svedberg are still competing for spots on the NHL roster with the majority of the aforementioned players likely headed to the Providence camp next week.
