Subban Secures Title for Canada – Hockey powerhouses Canada and Russia needed longer than the anticipated four games to determine a winner in the 2012 Canada-Russia Challenge.

With the series tied at one game apiece, the scene shifted to Halifax, Nova Scotia for Game 3 on Monday evening, where Russia edged Canada for a 6-5 victory. Forward Andrei Sigarev’s second goal of the game with 6:23 left to play proved to be the game winner.

MacDermid Turns Attention to Camp - For many hockey players trying to make it in the NHL, the biggest challenge is making the most of limited opportunities. Bruins forward Lane MacDermid attempted to capitalize on his chance last spring, when he exchanged blows with New York Rangers enforcer Mike Rupp in his first shift of NHL ice time.

Despite giving up two inches and forty pounds, MacDermid landed a few hard shots and eventually earned the takedown. Still, he insists the bout was not a planned ordeal.

Krug Battling to Return to NHL

WILMINGTON, MA – Every single player at the Bruins’ sixth annual Development Camp has one career goal in mind – to suit up and skate in an NHL game. Well, that is except for defenseman Torey Krug, who is trying to do it again.

The Bruins signed Krug as a free agent after Michigan State’s season ended on March 25 of this year, and he made his NHL debut against the Pittsburgh Penguins on April 3 at the TD Garden.

What's Next for Knight?

WILMINGTON, MA – Having just finished his third Bruins Development Camp, forward Jared Knight is ready to take his game to the next level. Only time will tell if he’ll be suiting up in Providence or Boston this fall.

Knight’s solid play in Wilmington earlier this month impressed Providence Head Coach Bruce Cassidy, but the 20-year-old still has something to prove.

Campbell Gets Black & Golden Opportunity

WILMINGTON, MA – Skating for a premier Division-I hockey program can be a rewarding experience, but collegiate hockey doesn’t carry the same weight or intensity as the NHL. So when Lake Superior State University forward Colin Campbell received a call from the Boston Bruins in early January, he jumped at the opportunity.

“Yeah it was great,” Campbell recalled of the Bruins’ invitation. “They saw me play a couple times and then they called me and invited me to their camp and within the next couple of days, I gave them a call back and I accepted and here I am today.”

The fact that Boston was the team on the other end of the line made the moment all the more thrilling.

One Goal at a Time for Griffith

WILMINGTON, MA – Seth Griffith figured he would be suiting up at a rookie camp during the summer with an NHL organization - he just thought it would be last year.

Over 200 young prospects were selected at last year’s NHL Entry Draft in St. Paul, Minnesota, but the London Knights forward never got his name called.

This year, Griffith waited until pick no. 131 to receive a phone call from the Boston Bruins and the experience has spurred him to work even harder on the ice.

Camara: More Than Just Toughness

WILMINGTON, MA – If Anthony Camara’s Development Camp jersey was stitched with the number 22, fans at Ristuccia Arena in Wilmington, MA may think that Bruins tough guy Shawn Thornton had arrived to pick on the unassuming youngsters.

While there are similarities between their games, the number 51 worn by Camara served as a reminder that he still has a lot of work to do to garner comparisons to the beloved Bruins fourth liner.

“Definitely,” Camara said when asked if he feels pressure to show improvement

Campers Put on a Clinic

REVERE, MA – Cronin Arena was abuzz this afternoon as the Bruins prospects took to the ice to assist with a youth hockey clinic.

The event was part of the B’s FUNdamentals program, and featured three cross-ice scrimmages and an autograph session. In all, 54 skaters participated, ranging in ages from 5-9, with a wide range of skill and experience.
