Bruins Call Up Hennessy And Bodnarchuk From AHL

The Boston Bruins called up two players from AHL affiliate Providence this week. Defenseman Andrew Bodnarchuk and forward Josh Hennessy will both join the team Tuesday against the New York Rangers, and should stick around through Boston's upcoming six-game road stand.

Bodnarchuk takes the roster spot formerly occupied by Steven Kampfer. The 23-year-old Kampfer was demoted after 10 games in the NHL in order gain more experience. Bodnarchuk brings a slightly more veteran presence, having been selected in the fifth round of the 2006-07 NHL Draft. He played five games with the Bruins during the 2009-10 season.

Hennessy will be making his first appearance in the NHL as a Boston Bruin. He played in four seasons with the Ottawa Senators before being traded to Boston last August. He has appeared in just 20 games in six years, with just one goal to show for it. Hennessy has played well in the AHL this year, however, notching 15 goals and 15 assists in 49 games.
