The Bruins reassigned Frederic to AHL Providence on Sunday, Mark Divver of The Providence Journal reports.
Frederic was recalled for depth so the Bruins could rest their top dogs. He drew into two games, recording 10 PIM and dishing out two hits. For the time being, he'll look to help AHL Providence make a playoff run, but Frederic may get recalled again when the Bruins' playoff run starts Thursday versus the Maple Leafs.
The Bruins have recalled Frederic from AHL Providence on an emergency basis.
Zach Senyshyn was also recalled, which signals that the Bruins may choose to strategically rest a nicked up forward or two during the team's final two regular-season games. Frederic, who did not record a point in 13 NHL games this season, has meanwhile logged 11 goals and 22 points in 51 AHL contests. The 21-year-old could emerge as a solid two-way power forward down the road, but for now he's off the fantasy radar given his lack of production at the top level.
The Bruins sent Frederic back to AHL Providence on Saturday.
Frederic drew in for the Bruins in each of the last two games on emergency conditions, but he saw just 4:34 of ice Tuesday and 11:53 on Thursday, posting a combined minus-3 rating. With Jake DeBrusk (foot) back in action, the 2016 first-round pick will head back to the minors looking to play his way back into a role with the Bruins.
Frederic was recalled from AHL Providence under emergency conditions Tuesday, Amalie Benjamin of NHL.com reports.
The Bruins are thin up front as a result of injuries to Marcus Johansson (lung contusion), Jake DeBrusk (foot) and David Pastrnak (thumb), so Frederic was called up as a reinforcement option. However, the 21-year-old center from the University of Wisconsin has yet to record a point through 11 games at the top level, and he shouldn't have much fantasy utility this late in the season.
The Bruins reassigned Frederic to AHL Providence on Thursday.
Frederic didn't do much during his first NHL recall, going scoreless while firing 13 shots on net in 11 appearances, so he definitely stands to benefit from some additional time in the minors. The University of Wisconsin product will remain with AHL Providence for the foreseeable future, but he could be back with the big club once postseason play gets underway.
Frederic will center the third line in Sunday's game against Colorado, Conor Ryan of MassLive.com reports.
The 6-foot-2 rookie is still searching for his first NHL point after being held scoreless in his first five games this season. Frederic will have Jake DeBrusk and Joakim Nordstrom on his wings Sunday.
Frederic is expected to be a scratch Saturday against the Kings.
In five games since being recalled from AHL Providence, Frederic has gone without a point. The 6-foot-2, 203-pounder got into a scrap with Winnipeg's Brandon Tanev in his NHL debut, but since then Frederic has been unable to lock down the Bruins' fluid third-center assignment. He'll get a look from the press box Saturday, while David Backes will re-enter the lineup.
Frederic logged 8:29 worth of ice time in his NHL debut in Tuesday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Jets.
Frederic, who recorded two shots and two hits in the contest, also made his mark by getting into a scrap with Brandon Tanev. While the 20-year-old doesn't profile as an enforcer, the grit that the 6-foot-2, 203-pounder can bring to the table as the Bruins' third-line center could help him stick with the big club. It certainly caught the eye of coach Bruce Cassidy, who noted "I thought Frederic played very well. He's as advertised, played between the dots, strong on pucks, played behind their D, made a few plays. If he had a chance to shoot it he did, great scrap, good for him. We need some of that." With that in mind, as Thursday's game against the Flyers approaches, Frederic is slated to continue to man the middle of a trio that also includes Danton Heinen and David Backes.
Frederic centered the Bruins' third line at Monday's practice.
The No. 29 overall pick in the 2016 NHL Draft thus becomes the latest player to be auditioned for the team's third-line center job. Through 37 AHL games this season, the 20-year-old has logged 10 goals and 17 points to go along with 47 PIM, but Frederic's recall comes on the heels of him notching two goals and four points over his last three outings. At 6-foot-2, 203 pounds, Frederic brings good size to the table, but the key to him sticking at the NHL level will be continued development in his offensive game.
Frederic was recalled from AHL Providence on Monday.
Frederic was in the mix for a roster spot in the NHL during the offseason, but was sent down to the minors before the year began. Then, he spent some time injured, but he's been healthy for a couple months now and has earned his first call-up. Jakob Forsbacka-Karlsson was sent down in a corresponding move, so Frederic could get some actual playing time.
Frederic (undisclosed) returned to action for AHL Providence in Sunday's overtime loss to Charlotte, WEEI.com reports.
Frederic, who had been out since Nov. 10 with an unspecified injury, scored a third-period goal Sunday, upping his total on the season to six tallies (with zero assists) in 14 games. With Boston's top center Patrice Bergeron out with a rib issue, it's possible that the big club might summon Frederic before too long. Currently, Jakob Forsbacka-Karlsson and Colby Cave are up with the Bruins on recalls.
Frederic is dealing with an upper-body injury, Mark Divver of The Providence Journal reports.
Coach Jay Leach relayed that there's a slim possibility that Frederic (upper body) could play for AHL Providence this weekend, though next weekend is a more likely outcome on that front. The No. 29 overall pick in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft has logged five goals in 13 AHL games to go along with 32 PIM to date. Once healthy, he's a candidate for an NHL recall down the road, but for now Jakob Forsbacka-Karlsson (currently with the big club) is a bit ahead of Frederic in the Bruins' prospect pecking order among pivots.
Frederic has been assigned to AHL Providence.
Frederic had been in the mix to claim the Bruins' No. 3 center job, but now that he and Jakob Forsbacka-Karlsson have both been sent to the AHL, it looks like Sean Kuraly will handle the job out of the gate. The 20-year-old will now look to hone his game at Providence and is a call-up candidate when injuries hit the big club up front. At 6-foot-2, 203 pounds and with improving skills on offense, Frederic profiles as a solid two-way center at the NHL level, at a minimum. If his all-around game continues to blossom, however, he could develop into a Jordan Staal-type down the road.
Frederic remains in contention for a roster spot with the Bruins to start the season, Eric Russo of the team's official site reports.
The Bruins are seeking to fill the void created by the offseason departure of Riley Nash, who did a nice job as the team's No. 3 center last season. Also in the mix to claim the job are Jakob Forsbacka-Karlsson and Sean Kuraly. After turning pro last year, Frederic logged five goals and eight points in 13 contests for AHL Providence. At 6-foot-2, 203 pounds and with improving skills on offense, Frederic could theoretically combine with veteran forward David Backes to give the Bruins' third line added physicality. For now, the job battle for Nash's old slot is too close to call, with Forsbacka-Karlsson's two-way play and Kuraly's NHL experience giving them shots to land the assignment.
Frederic scored a goal in AHL Providence's 3-1 win over Wilkes-Barre Scranton on Saturday night, the Providence Journal reports.
Frederic, who skated on the team's second line Saturday, now has two goals and three points in his first six games as a pro. While the 20-year-old, who Providence lists at 6-foot-5, 215 pounds, isn't a candidate for an NHL recall in the short term, Mark Divver of The Providence Journal relays that there are hopes that the big-bodied center could "develop into a Jordan Staal type down the road." The Bruins raised some eyebrows when they selected Frederic 29th overall in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft, but since then, he's displayed a developing scoring touch that could translate into a top-six role in Boston in time.
The Bruins have signed Frederic to an entry-level deal.
Frederic's three-year contract with the B's begins with the 2018-19 season. The 20-year-old, who Boston selected 29th overall in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft, notched 17 goals and 32 points in 36 games for the University of Wisconsin this past season. Frederic is probably ticketed for some AHL duty as he breaks in as a pro, but the 6-foot-3, 215-pounder is a big-bodied center with a developing scoring touch who could vie for a top-six role with the big club down the road.
Frederic scored four times to help lead Team USA to the bronze medal and a 9-3 win over the Czech Republic in the 2018 World Junior Championship on Friday in Buffalo.
It wasn't the medal that the group was hoping for, but at least Team USA is going home with some hardware for a third year in a row. Boston's 2016 first-round pick had an up and down tournament, as did all of his teammates other than Buffalo prospect Casey Mittelstadt and Islanders property Kieffer Bellows. Frederic had just a single goal and no assists in Team USA's six games prior to Friday. Drafted as a big body that can do some damage down low, Frederic has shown a surprising scoring touch throughout his first two years at the University of Wisconsin. It is far from a lock that he produces at the same rate as a professional.
