Boston Bruins Bring In A Familiar Face To Add To Their Preseason Roster

Boston Bruins Bring In Lee Stempniak And Daniel Winnik On PTO’s

On Monday afternoon Boston Bruins General Manager Don Sweeney announced two professional tryout agreements, and one should be very familiar to Bruins fans.

Per Sweeney the organization has singed forwards Lee Stempniak and Daniel Winnik to PTO’s.

Stempniak has played 13 seasons in the NHL on 10 different teams including the Boston Bruins. Boston acquired Stempniak from the New Jersey Devils on February 29th, 2016 in exchange for a 2016 fourth round pick (Evan Courmier) and a 2017 second-round pick (later traded to the Sharks who selected Mario Ferraro). In that time with Boston the forward played in 13 games recording three goals and seven assists. After the end of the 2015-16 season he spent the last two seasons with Carolina Hurricanes.

In his career, Stempniak has played in 909 games scoring 203 goals and tallying 266 assists for 469 points.

As for Winnik, he has played in 11 seasons with 9 different teams recording 251 points with 82 goals and 169 assists.

Both Winnik and Stempniak look to add some more veteran presence for the Bruins preseason roster and both are considered long-shots to make Boston’s roster.
