Bruins General Manager Don Sweeney announced today, Tuesday that the team has placed forward Gemel Smith on waivers and has also assigned defenseman Jeremy Lauzon to the Providence Bruins.


Smith skated in three games for the team after being claimed off waivers from the Dallas Stars on December 6th. The 24-year-old played in 14 games with the Stars this season, posting two goals and one assist for three points. The Toronto native was selected by the Stars in the fourth round (104th overall) of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.


Lauzon has appeared in 15 games this season for the black and gold, making his NHL debut on October 25th against the Philadelphia Flyers. The 21-year-old has totaled a single goal this season, his first career goal on November 11th against the Vegas Golden Knights. Lauzon has also appeared in eight games this season with the Providence Bruins, posting a goal and three assists for four points. In his first professional season in 2017-18, Lauzon skated in 52 games for Providence, totaling a goal and six assists for seven points.

The Val D’or, Quebec native was selected by the Bruins in the second round (52nd overall) of the 2015 NHL Entry. Bruins fans should expect to see Lauzon again at some point this season especially if more injuries occur. His game has translated well to the NHL and it’s clear he has the skills to be a quality defenseman.
