Bench Analysis

The final piece of the Bruins roster analysis. The bench.

Wade Brookbank-Known mostly as a tough guy, Brookbank will provide that role for the Bruins. He is a forward conturary to those who thought he was originally a defenseman. Brookbank will split time between Providence and Boston, and will only see 4th line action. He will also be a healthy scratch many games. Brookbank is one of the only tough guys the Bruins have this season, and look for some scrappy fights from this guy.

Jeff Hoggan-One of the finalists to make the roster, Hoggan will provide more depth in case of injury. Hoggan recorded 8 points in 52 games last season with the Blues. At 28 years old, Hoggan only has 1 year of pro experience. It looks like he will likely play most the season in Providence.

Petr Kalus-A lot of news surrounding him recently with the ruling on whether he will go back to his junior team or Providence, but the ruling is that he will be allowed to play in Providence this season. Kalus is a up and coming star forward for the team, and will likely spend most if not all the season in Providence. We could see Kalus come up late in the year if necessary.

Petr Tenkrat-At 29 years old, Tenktrat is no longer a prospect. He hasn't played well the last two seasons, but many have said that he looks like a completely different player this season. In 2001-2002, he put up terrific rookie numbers of 8 goals and 16 assists, but only in 54 games. Tenkrat will definately be called up if an injury occurs to the offense.
