Bruins Recall Toivonen from Providence

Boston -- Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced today that the club has recalled goaltender Hannu Toivonen from the Providence Bruins of the American Hockey League (AHL). He will be joining the team in Montreal tomorrow for their game against the Canadiens tomorrow night.

Toivonen, who is in his fourth year with the Bruins organization, has played 16 games for Boston this season, posting a record of 3-7-1 and a goals-against average of 4.42. His most recent outing came on February 24 in no decision relief of Tim Thomas in the Bruins 7-2 loss to the Florida Panthers in Sunrise, Florida.

Toivonen has appeared in 23 games for Providence this season. He has a record of 11-12-0 and a goals-against average of 2.36 with the AHL club. He has also tallied one assist.

Hopefully he plays a solid two games (considering Thomas is getting the start on Saturday). I want this kid to prove he can be a number one in Boston next year, and do not want to see him go for practically nothing on draft day.

Since St. Louis is 3 points ahead of Boston, I can cheer for the Bruins, and know that we can still sit in the 8th slot on draft day.

How do you know Toivonen is going to be starting? The Bruins still have Macdonald up with Boston right?

Yep, and MacDonald will be the healthy scratch the next 2 games. After Toivo's second game on Thursday, he's goin back to Providence to help them clinch a playoff spot.
