ST. PAUL, MN The Bruins continue to search for line combinations and players that will give them some offensive pop, and theyve called up a player from Providence they hope might provide a spark.
Carter Camper is coming off a hat trick on Sunday against the Connecticut Whale and was the only P-Bruins player invited to take part in the AHL All-Star game last month. Camper has 14 goals and 24 assists in 53 games for the Providence farm club, and will be enjoying his first call-up to the NHL when he meets the Bruins in St. Louis for a scheduled Tuesday practice at the Scottrade Center.
Carter was a college hockey standout at Miami (Ohio) University, made Frozen Four appearances and was a Hobey Baker finalist in his senior year before signing with the Bruins organization as an undrafted free agent.
The bruised and battered Bruins clearly needed an extra forward while carrying just 12 bodies on the front line following the injury to Rich Peverley, but there may also be a desire to catch offensive lightning in a bottle given that hes been feeling it offensively at the American Hockey League level.
As GMs will tell you, the process for figuring out the draft order is a fluid work in progress. Take a look at the latest installment on A. Sherrod Blakely's mock draft

HARRISON, N.J. - Daniel Royer finished a nice sequence in the 74th minute, Luis Robles made a diving save in the closing minutes and the New York Red Bulls rallied to beat the New England Revolution 2-1 on Saturday night.
Felipe sent the ball left to Kemar Lawrence alongside the box and he put a cross to Royer on the back post for an easy finish on his fourth goal.
Robles, who only allowed Lee Nguyen's penalty kick in the ninth minute, preserved the win with his fourth save, diving to his left to block Diego Fagundez's shot from outside the box.
Bradley Wright-Phillips tied it for New York (6-6-2), which was winless in its last four matches, when he pounced on a loose ball and backheeled it into the net. New England goalkeeper Cody Cropper had pounced on a cross by Kemar Lawance, but Cropper could hold on and Wright-Phillips was there to clean up for his sixth goal.
Damien Perrinelle fouled Fagundez in the penalty area after a great pass from Kei Kamara, allowing Nguyen to step up for his sixth goal. New England (4-5-4) had won two straight and lost just one of its previous six. It is 0-5-2 on the road.
