In the late moments of last night’s Providence Bruins 3-2 overtime loss to the visiting Charlotte Checkers, Boston Bruins prospect Fabian Lysell lost an edge, falling to the ice and crashing hard into the boards. The second-year American Hockey League pro needed help off the ice from fellow teammates and nearby trainers. Several reports out of Providence mentioned Lysell was in considerable pain and looked “out of it.”

Currently, the injury is listed as upper-body per Mark Divver on Twitter/X, but the former 2021 first-round selection does have a concussion history with a headshot in the second round of the 2023 American Hockey League Calder Cup Playoffs. My guess is that the Providence organization will have an injury update soon, as the team has already reached out to their feeder system and is adding another player to the Bruins roster.

Per the transactions page this morning, the top minor-pro affiliate of the Boston Bruins has recalled Adam Mechura from the ECHL Maine Mariners. The 21-year-old Czech Republic native has played in 55 games for the NHL Bruins “AA” affiliate with 19-23-42 numbers in his first pro season. Before turning pro, Mechura spent one season playing for the Tri-City Americans in the Western Hockey League, contributing 26-26-52 in 58 games in his first true season of North American Hockey.

In two games for Providence this year, the 6′-4″ 201-pound left shooting center has zero points in his previous recall. The undrafted forward is expected to be in this afternoon’s lineup as the AHL Bruins face the visiting Syracuse Crunch at 3:05 at the Amica Mutual Pavillion in downtown Providence, Rhode Island. Mechura signed a two-year, two-way AHL contract with the Providence Bruins in October of 2023.

With last night’s overtime loss at the AMP, Providence remains locked in second place in the AHL’s Atlantic Division. The B’s are 36-18-4-2 and 78 points with 12 games remaining. The B’s are six points ahead of third-place Charlotte Checkers and 19 points behind the league’s heavyweight Hershey Bears, who were the first AHL team to clinch a postseason playoff spot.
