Newest Bruin Makes Statement Before His Debut

Published February 9, 2024 at 3:51 PM

In a strategic move, Bruins General Manager Don Sweeney disclosed yesterday the organization's decision to shuffle the roster, summoning forward Anthony Richard from the Providence Bruins to elevate him to the NHL club.

Today, in a candid locker room interview, the 27-year-old Richard elaborated on his imminent debut slated for this Saturday against the Washington Capitals.

Reflecting on his journey, Richard conveyed gratitude for his tenure in Providence while exuding palpable enthusiasm for the opportunity to skate alongside seasoned stars.
"I was waiting for my chance, so I'm really happy to be here,"
he remarked.

Asserting his confidence in his ability to deliver a well-rounded performance, Richard, set to make only his 16th NHL appearance, highlighted his recent career resurgence. Despite logging just two games with the Nashville Predators from 2018 to 2020, Richard gained traction with 13 appearances for the Montreal Canadiens last season.
"Since Christmas, my game has been the best I've played in pro hockey,"
he affirmed.

With anticipation mounting for his debut, Richard is slated to bolster the Bruins' fourth line. However, his substantial penalty kill contributions for Providence this season hint at a potentially expanded role. As the Bruins' season enters its critical stretch, all eyes are on Richard, poised to make his mark in the big leagues. The stage is set for an impactful addition to the Bruins' lineup as Richard's journey unfolds on Saturday.
