WILMINGTON, Mass. — The Boston Bruins have returned forward Max Sauve to his junior club, Val d’Or of the QMJHL.

In three games, Sauve, Boston’s second-round pick in ’08, was the Bruins’ leading scorer with 1-2-3 totals. He was also a plus-2. Sauve, 19, showed impressive skill and improved strength and could wind up helping Providence (AHL) in the spring once his junior season is over.
