The Boston Bruins took a low-risk gamble when they signed Kenny Agostino from free agency with intentions of adding depth no matter what level barring waiver pickup from another franchise. With no takers via priority claim for last seasons American Hockey League scoring champion, his demotion to the Providence Bruins was yes a disappointment, but one of motivation to work harder to get back to the National Hockey League. The 6′-0″ 203-pound left winger reported to the Baby B’s and has played with an incredibly positive attitude and is one of the leaders of the offensive core that’s young enough to learn from his experiences.
Today the AHL awarded the New Jersey native with last week’s CCM/AHL Player Of The Week with his 2-3-5 numbers in games against the Springfield Thunderbirds on Friday night and Toronto Marlies the very next night. These numbers are not including his Providence debut on Saturday, October 7, 2017, against the mentioned Thunderbirds.

Agostino and his Providence Bruins team get back to work for three straight contests this weekend starting on Friday night on the road in Springfield then the next two at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island against the Belleville Senators on Saturday night and finish off the weekend with an afternoon game on Sunday against the Laval Rocket.
For those who haven’t seen much of what kind of player Agostino is, I encourage you to watch these Youtube highlight videos below.
