The Providence Bruins, in their 20th season in the American Hockey League, announced today the roster of former Providence Bruins that will participate in the Alumni Game on November 13 at the Dunkin' Donuts Center.
Fifteen former P-Bruins will return to Providence to face off with the Boston Bruins Alumni on Sunday. The roster boasts four members of the 1998-99 Calder Cup Championship team, including Jay Henderson, Andre Savage, Eric Nickulas and Peter Ferarro. The fifteen alumni players combined for over 1,700 games in a Providence sweater and over 600 NHL games, including 279 wearing the ‘Spoked-B.'
The roster is comprised of ten forwards, including former captain Henderson, Ferarro, Savage, Nickulas, Howie Rosenblatt, Brett Harkins, Fred Knipscheer, Brendan Walsh, Chris Winnes and Matt Glennon. Three alumni players boast the top three spots in Providence's all-time playoff points leaders. Ferarro is the all-time playoff point leader with 42 points in 49 playoff games with the club over three seasons. He is trailed by Nickulas, who recorded 35 points in 47 playoff contests from 1998-01 and 2005-06. Harkins rounds out the top three with 34 points in 23 playoff games over three campaigns.
On the blue line, the alumni are anchored by Jeff Wells, Mark Cornforth and Brian White. Kay Whitmore, a veteran of 155 NHL games, and Rob Gribben are between the pipes.
