After an impressive World Cup showing, the Boston Bruins decided to extend a PTO to defenseman Christian Ehrhoff. Upon watching Ehrhoff throughout the pre-season, the Bruins decided to extend a contract to the defenseman, which he declined. Essentially, his reasoning for declining the offer is the fact that he wouldn’t be a top-six defender. Instead, Ehrhoff has decided to go back to his native country, Germany and go from there.
All of this information comes from TSN’s Bob McKenzie, as he tweeted out the information this afternoon.
In addition to Ehrhoff going to Germany, the Bruins also made some other roster transactions today.
“Boston Bruins General Manager Don Sweeney announced today, October 10, that the team has made the following roster transactions: forwards Seth Griffith , Tyler Randell and Tim Schaller have been placed on waivers for the purpose of assignment to the Providence Bruins; forwards Jake DeBrusk and Sean Kuraly and goaltender Malcolm Subban have been assigned to Providence.”(via Bruins Official Release)
Young gun Brandon Carlo is sticking around with the big club or the time being, especially in the absence of Adam McQuaid and Kevan Miller, both who are battling day-to-day injuries. Carlo is taking things day by day stating, “It’s really nice to still be around.”
