Bruins General Manager Don Sweeney announced this morning that the team has placed forward Par Lindholm on injured reserve and recalled forward Zach Senyshyn from Providence. Lindholm suffered an upper body injury during the B’s 7-4 win over the Rangers on October 27th. Lindholm has skated in seven games for Boston this season, recording a goal. Senyshyn has posted two goals and an assist in 12 games for Providence so far this season.

Senyshyn skated in two games for Boston last season, scoring his first career goal in his first game on April 4th against the Minnesota Wild. Senyshyn appeared in 66 regular season games for Providence last year, recording 14 goals and ten assists for 24 points. He also appeared in four playoff games going scoreless. The Ottawa, Ontario native was drafted by the Bruins in the first round (15th overall) of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. Lindholm signed in Boston as a free agent this summer after spending time in Winnipeg and Toronto. The Kusmark, Sweden native was originally signed by the Leafs as a free agent in May 2018.
This is Senyshyn’s second recall of his career and he could potentially play tonight against the Canadiens. Lindholm’s placement on IR continues the rash of injuries the B’s have suffered especially in their bottom six. If Senyshyn does indeed slot into the lineup tonight, it’ll be interesting to see where he’s put and what he can do.
