With Torrey Krug sidelined, Grzelcyk gets the opportunity to quarterback the Bruins’ top power play unit.

Bourque is back for another AHL season, joining his brother with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. Bourque, who played for the US Olympic team last winter, has been an AHL MVP and won two league scoring titles.
