Whitfield Recalled on an Emergency Basis
BOSTON, MA – Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced today that the club has recalled forward Trent Whitfield from the Providence Bruins on an emergency basis (American Hockey League). Whitfield – who serves as captain for the P-Bruins – is expected to join the team on Monday, March 12 for their 2:00 p.m. practice at the Tampa Bay Times Forum in Tampa, FL, and be available for their game against the Lightning on March 13.

This marks Whitfield’s first recall to Boston this year. With Providence this season, the 5’11’’, 209 pound center has five goals and six assists, combining for 11 total points in 41 games. In the 2010-11 season, Whitfield finished fourth in the P-Bruins scoring race with 18-18=36 totals, despite playing just 45 games after missing the first half of the season due to injury.

The 34-year-old is in his 14th professional season, and has appeared in 193 NHL games with three different organizations. After spending time with the Washington Capitals, NY Rangers, and St. Louis Blues, Whitfield has accumulated 11 goals and 18 assists, giving him 29 career NHL points. In the 2009-10 season, Whitfield appeared in 16 games with Boston and registered one assist.

Whitfield was originally drafted by Boston in the fourth round (100th overall) of the 1996 NHL Entry Draft, but did not play in the Boston organization until signing as a free agent in July, 2009. 

The 2011-2012 Boston Bruins season is presented by the Massachusetts State Lottery.
