Boston Bruins: Brett Ritchie experiment will end as a throw-in on trade

At one point, we even considered the notion that Brett Ritchie could be the solution to the never-ending Boston Bruins second line right-wing dilemma. Unfortunately, it hasn’t quite panned out like that; in fact it’s not even close.

Right about now, Brett Ritchie will be getting ready to line up against the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins wearing the gold and black of a Providence Bruins uniform, rather than the gold and black of the Boston Bruins.

That’s not to say that Bruce Cassidy didn’t try to persist with Brett Ritchie in the Boston Bruins line-up; he played 27 NHL games before his demotion to the American Hockey League.
