Just as the Bruins are finally getting set to take the ice for the 2013 season, one of the stars of the team’s 2011 Stanley Cup run is making a return to the game as well. Former Bruins forward and alternate captain Mark Recchi will join the front office of the Dallas Stars, the Dallas Morning News reports. The move is expected to announced at a news conference on Thursday. According to Comcast SportsNet New England’s Joe Haggerty, Recchi will serve as a special advisor to Stars general manager Joe Nieuwendyk. A seven-time All-Star, Recchi played for seven different teams during his 22-year career — though never with Dallas — and spent his final three seasons in Boston, where he won his third and final Stanley Cup. Since retiring from the game, the British Columbia native has served as a co-owner of his hometown team — the Kamloops Blazers of the Western Hockey League — with whom he played his junior hockey in the late 1980s. Though Recchi never suited up for the Stars, Mike Modano ...

Bruins rusty as expected in 7-5 loss to Providence Tuesday night

The Bruins players, and their fans, are ready for Saturday night’s season opener The Bruins got back on the ice Tuesday night as they faced off against the Providence Bruins in the Garden. Personally, my expectations were not high for this scrimmage, seeing as how the Bruins haven’t played an actual game together in over half a year. That, along with the fact that these are scrimmages...

It has always been a dream of Chris Bourque’s to take the ice at the Garden in a Bruins sweater — just as his father Ray did for 21 years. The 26-year-old got that opportunity Tuesday night, when he suited up for the B’s in the team’s annual Black and Gold scrimmage. The Providence Bruins — Boston’s AHL affiliate — pulled out a 7-5 victory over the big league club...

AHL and CHL Prospect Report and The Week Ahead 1/14-1/20

Texas Stars January has been very kind to the Texas Stars as they ran their winning streak to a season high six games. It’s even more impressive when you consider that the Stars had their roster gutted for their final game of the week as good chunk of the roster went up to Dallas for training camp and they were playing three games in three days. Goaltending was the story...

Bill Meltzer: Star Gazing: Stars Pulled Trigger on Fistric a Little Soon

Ever since former first-round pick Mark Fistric had his seeming breakthrough 2009-10 season, he's been shuttling in and out of the Dallas Stars' long-term plans on defense. Yesterday, the team made clear that the impending unrestricted free agent was neither a part of the short-term or long-term plan. He was traded to the Edmonton Oilers for a third-round draft pick. ...

No Limitations For Horton Heading Into Shortened Season

Tonight, for the first time in nearly 12 months, Nathan Horton will strap on his pads, pull on his Bruins jersey and head out onto the TD Garden ice for a game without any health limitations. Sure, it’s only an exhibition game versus the Providence Bruins, but it’s a start. It’s been almost a full calendar year since Horton suffered his second concussion in a seven-month span...

Bill Meltzer: Star Gazing: Eakin Is Coming Along Nicely, Glennie Isn't

The Dallas Stars decision last join to trade erstwhile second-line center Mike Ribeiro to the Washington Capitals for 21-year-old center prospect Cody Eakin and a second-round pick was a pretty clear indication that the Stars wanted to go in a different direction after narrowly missing the playoffs in each of the last two seasons. The subsequent acquisition of Derek Roy relieved...

Richard Cloutier: Oilers Make a Trade!

News coming down the pipe just now that the Oilers have acquired defenseman Mark Fistric from the Dallas Stars for a 3rd round draft pick. Fistric is exactly what the Oilers were looking for as a defensive upgrade: He's younger (26) left-handed, big (6' 2", 233), a defensive defenseman, and he's local (born in Edmonton). Fistric is also a reasonable cap hit: ...

Trade: Edmonton acquires defenseman Mark Fistric from Dallas for third-round pick in 2013

The Edmonton Oilers have acquired defenseman Mark Fistric from Dallas in exchange for a third-round pick at the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. I would not recommend picking up Mark Fistric in any type of fantasy hockey format as he'll be recorded two assists in 60 contests last season with the Dallas Stars.Having said this, I'm very excited about this acquisition, Fistric is an Edmonton...

Young stars must carry the 2013 Bruins

For the upcoming shortened NHL season to end in another cup for the Bruins, this must be a breakthrough year for our young talent. Here I am primarily referring to Tyler Seguin and Tuukka Rask.  These are two guys who can be superstars in this league for years to come, and if they play to the level they are capable of consistently, they will carry the team to playoff success for...

With the season starting on Saturday teams will not have the opportunity to play any real pre-season...

Dougie Hamilton’s Skill Set Reminds Peter Chiarelli of Rob Blake, Larry Robinson

Dougie Hamilton is just 19 years old and has yet to appear in an NHL game, so Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli finds it difficult to put a ceiling on what exactly the big defenseman could accomplish in his career. But when asked who Hamilton compares to, Chiarelli threw out a couple of interesting names. Chiarelli said that Hamilton’s skill set reminds him of Larry Robinson...

Ty Anderson: P-Bruins beat Bruins in scrimmage, 7-5

Tonight's game between the Providence Bruins and Boston Bruins didn't mean anything. In fact, they had to call it the "Black & Gold Intersquad Scrimmage" to avoid it breaking some sort of NHL-AHL rule. It was a pointless contest meant to shake the rust of a three-month plus lockout off the skates, but it instead raised some questions regarding the strength...
