B’s Release Former Black Bear Purcell From PTO
The Boston Bruins have released former UMaine Black Bear Teddy Purcell from his Professional Tryout Agreement.
Purcell was trying to make the teams as a veteran but it appears the Bruins will have a younger look when the season opens Thursday night. He scored one goal during the preseason.
Purcell, 32-years-old, is now free to sign with any team.
The B's also sent three players to their AHL Providence team - Tommy Cross, Jordan Szwarz and Jakub Zboril.
The Bruins open the season against the Nashville Preds on Thursday night.
