The Bruins made three transactions today, recalling center Paul Carey and defenseman Connor Clifton, while sending left winger Peter Cehlarik back down to AHL Providence.
Carey, 30, is in his second stint with the Bruins organization (he played 17 games for Providence in the 2014-15 season). Boston acquired him from the Ottawa Senators in January for Cody Goloubef. In 21 games for Providence this season, Carey has 14 goals and six assists in 21 games with a plus-5.
In six NHL seasons with four teams, Carey has played 97 games (60 coming in the 2017-18 season) with eight goals and eight assists.
For the 23-year-old Clifton, this will be his second stint of the season with the Bruins in his first NHL campaign. Clifton played nine games from November 16 to December 4, recording a plus-2 and racking up 11 penalty minutes (nine coming in his first game).
Clifton has 27 points (six goals, 21 assists), and a plus-13 in 53 games this season for Providence. He will replace Torey Krug in the lineup for tomorrow night's game against the Winnipeg Jets, who's currently dealing with an upper-body injury.
Cehlarik played in the last six games for the Bruins, recording no points and 10 shots. This is his sixth demotion to Providence this season, and fifth one since January 20.
