Seidenberg To Miss Remainder of Season With Torn ACL\/MCL; B\'s Recall Trotman & Assign Svedberg
Seidenberg will miss the remainder of the season with a torn ACL\/MCL in his right knee. The expected recovery time for Seidenberg is 6-8 months.

BOSTON, MA – Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced today, December 28, that defenseman Dennis Seidenberg will miss the remainder of the 2013-14 season with a torn ACL/MCL in his right knee. The expected recovery time for Seidenberg is 6-8 months.

The injury occurred during the third period of the Bruins/Senators game on Friday, December 27.

Chiarelli also announced that the team has recalled defenseman Zach Trotman from Providence on an emergency basis and assigned goaltender Niklas Svedberg to Providence. Trotman will join the team in Ottawa Saturday and be eligible to play in Saturday night's game.

Trotman has skated in 22 games for Providence this season, tallying one goal and six assists with a plus-11 rating

In total, 23-year-old blueliner has appeared in 70 AHL games since joining the P-Bruins in the 2011-12 season, amassing four goals and 22 assists. Trotman also skated in four playoff games with the Providence Bruins during the 2012-13 AHL postseason.

Prior to joining Providence, Trotman played three seasons at Lake Superior State University (2009-12) where he racked up 19 goals and 20 assists in 114 games.

This marks Trotman's first NHL recall.

The 6'3", 219-pound defenseman hails from Noblesville, Indiana and was drafted by Boston in the seventh round (210th overall) of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.

Dennis Seidenberg is a veteran of 615 NHL games with the Flyers, Coyotes, Hurricanes, Panthers and Bruins. This season he skated in 34 games for Boston and tallied one goal and nine assists.

The Bruins acquired Seidenberg from Florida with Matt Bartkowski on March 3, 2010, for Craig Weller, Byron Bitz and a 2010 second round pick.

Svedberg served as the team's backup goalie on Friday, December 27 after earning his first career regular season recall earlier that day.
