Friday afternoon, the Boston Bruins made a few more cuts, as Alex Khokhlachev was one of the key cuts, as he really hasn't shone through training camp or the preseason, not long after publicly coming out saying that he needed a better chance at it. There was some hope that Khokhlachev would make it through, adding to the rookie race this year, but that just wasn't to be the case.
Khokhlachev did have some solid projections in the low-20's, so it wasn't like he was going to be expected to do much, but if he made the roster, there was some likelihood that he was going to give a boost to that Bruins offense.
It's been done a few times already this preseason, a team recalls some players already sent down from camp, but a couple players I have been keeping an eye on, makes their return on Friday for a preseason game. Oliver Bjorkstrand and Sonny Milano, a pair of Columbus rookies, return for a game tonight against the Buffalo Sabres. I am not really optimistic that they'll stay up with the team, rather they'll get one more look to fill out the roster tonight and then be sent back down tomorrow morning. I guess we'll see, now won't we?
