2017 MLB DRAFT GUIDE: STRATEGIES
Morrow was sent to AHL Providence for a conditioning assignment Thursday.
The 2011 first-round pick was a healthy scratch for the Bruins' last 10 games, with each of the last five coming under interim head coach Bruce Cassidy. Morrow's skillset would seemingly fit with how Cassidy wants his defenseman to play, jumping into the rush in transition and trying to provide more offense. It will be curious to see whether or not Morrow will be utilized after his assignment, as with this new style of play, there's a chance he could begin living up to his billing as an offensive defenseman.
Czarnik (lower body) was activated from injured reserve and sent to the Providence Bruins of the AHL on Thursday.
The former Miami Redhawk has been out of the lineup with injury since Feb. 9, missing the team's last five games. Since being placed on IR, the Bruins made a head coaching change, and new bench boss Bruce Cassidy seems to like his current forward group, which doesn't include Czarnik. That said, many forwards have had inconsistent campaigns for Boston in 2016-17, so it's not out of the realm of possibility for Czarnik to find himself back in the NHL in the near future.
Letang has an upper-body injury and his status is day-to-day.
No further information on the nature of the injury was offered by head coach Mike Sullivan. It's unclear when Letang suffered the injury, as he logged 28:49 of ice time in Tuesday's win over Carolina. Pittsburgh returns to the ice Saturday for their NHL Stadium Series matchup with Philadelphia, so a further update on Letang's status should be given in the run up to the tilt.
