The Boston Bruins have recalled forward Marc McLaughlin from Providence on an emergency basis. The call-up comes as the team heads out on a brief two-game road trip with stops in both Long Island and Toronto.

The 24-year-old McLaughlin has suited up in 53 games for Boston’s AHL affiliate and has posted six goals, five assists, and eleven points. The Massachusetts native was signed as a free agent by the Bruins in 2022 and famously scored his first NHL goal in his first career game at TD Garden in front of his friends and family.

The 6-foot, 205-pound former Boston College captain has three goals in 13 career games with the Bruins. In 120 AHL games, he has notched 19 goals, 22 assists, and 41 points. Although no final lineup decisions have been made, fans may see McLaughlin as early as tomorrow night as the Bruins take on the New York Islanders. The transaction brings the team to 13 forwards on the active roster.
