The Boston Bruins have recalled defenseman Zach Trotman from Providence of the AHL, the team announced Sunday.
Bruins defenseman Dougie Hamilton suffered an undisclosed injury during the second period of Saturday’s 2-1 shootout loss to the Florida Panthers. He attempted to return, playing only one brief shift before he was shut down for the remainder of the game.
The Bruins face the Lightning on Sunday at Tampa Bay (5 p.m.) and needed Trotman on an emergency basis. He previously was recalled on March 13 but did not play against the Pittsburgh Penguins. Overall, he’s played 17 games with the Bruins this season.
The 24-year-old defenseman has played 38 games for the P-Bruins this season, posting two goals and 10 assists for 14 points.
With Hamilton’s status in question, his absence will leave a void on Boston’s blue line. He and Zdeno Chara have been the Bruins’ top defensive pair this season, and with the Bruins fighting for a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, if Hamilton is sidelined for an extended period of time it could hurt Boston’s chances.
