Boston Bruins Assign Phil Kessel to Providence Bruins

Boston -- Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced today that the team has assigned rookie center Phil Kessel to the Providence Bruins (AHL) for three games. Kessel will be recalled by Boston on Sunday night, after Providence's game against the Springfield Falcons.

Kessel has been sidelined since December 11 after being successfully treated for testicular cancer, and this stint in the AHL is for conditioning purposes.

"At just 19 years old and in his first season in the NHL, it would be difficult for Phil to come right back to Boston in the middle of the season, after being off the ice for a month," said Chiarelli. "These few games in Providence will help Phil re-adjust to the speed of the NHL so that he is ready to join Boston on Monday morning."

Kessel, 19, was Boston's first pick (fifth overall) in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft. He has appeared in 27 games for the Bruins this season, scoring five goals and recording four assists.

The Black and Gold return home to the TD Banknorth Garden on Saturday afternoon, when they host the Philadelphia Flyers at 1:00 p.m. ET.

Tickets are available for all home games online by clicking here, at the TD Banknorth Garden Box Office, all Ticketmaster outlets, or by phone at 617.624.BEAR.

Fans who cannot make it to the game can catch all of the action by watching NESN, or by tuning into WBZ Radio to hear the live broadcast of the game.
