Vladar has been called up from AHL Providence and is dressing as the backup Tuesday against the Capitals, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports. Vladar will suit up and back up Jeremy Swayman for the contest. In five appearances this season, Vladar has been lackluster to the tune of a 3.40 GAA and .886 save percentage.
Vladar is back with AHL Providence, Mark Divver of the New England Hockey Journal reports. With Tuukka Rask back in action and Jaroslav Halak having cleared COVID-19 protocols and moving toward a return to the lineup, Jeremy Swayman is still with the big club, while Vladar will work as Providence's top goalie for the time being. Swayman's impressive run play of late has for now apparently put him ahead of Vladar on the Bruins' organization depth chart.
Vladar was assigned to AHL Providence on Saturday, per CapFriendly. Vladar served as the backup to Tuukka Rask in Friday's game versus the Islanders. With the emergence of Jeremy Swayman in recent games, Vladar can log more playing time in the minors to work on his development.
Vladar will be added to the Bruins' roster in order to back up Jeremy Swayman in Friday night's game against the Islanders. The team is giving Thursday's starter, Tuukka Rask, the night off, so Vladar will be back up with the big club Friday night before likely heading back to the AHL afterward. For now, it appears as though Swayman has overtaken Vladar on the Bruins' organization depth chart, but other than one especially rough outing in his last NHL start (last Sunday's 8-1 loss to the Caps), Vladar has performed respectably when pressed into action by the big club.
Vladar has been returned to AHL Providence, Joe Haggerty of BostonHockeyNow.com reports. Vladar had been splitting time with Jeremy Swayman in Boston, with both Tuukka Rask (upper body) and Jaroslav Halak (COVID-19 protocols) unavailable. Now that Rask appears poised to return to action, Vladar will look to get back on track in the minors after a rough outing behind a shorthanded blue line corps this past Sunday against the Capitals, in which the 23-year-old gave up eight goals on 33 shots.
