The Boston Bruins recalled forward Carter Camper from AHL affiliate Providence on Monday. He will join the team for the first time this season after scoring 14 goals and notching 24 assists in 53 games with Providence. Camper is expected to join the team Tuesday in preparation for Wednesday's game on the road against the St. Louis Blues.
Camper joined the organization as a free agent out of Miami of Ohio on April 7, 2011, playing just three games for Providence last season. He has clearly outperformed his under-the-radar status, however, leading Providence with 28 points before getting called up to Boston.
The Bruins could use a scoring punch, having been shut out in three of their last seven games. The team is just 2-5 over that stretch. At 5-10, 175 pounds, Camper should be able to provide some energy off the bench.
