Bruins ties

Most Bruins fans probably have their own rooting interests, but three players in this year’s Beanpot hope to don the Black and Gold following their college careers.

Boston University junior blue liner David Warsofsky has had a career season for the Scarlet and White. He is second among all Hockey East defensemen with seven goals and 19 points in all 27 games, including three against BC. The Marshfield, Mass., native was traded to the Bruins from St. Louis in exchange for Vladimir Sobotka last June 26.

Eagles junior defenseman Tommy Cross, who has scored three goals and four points this season, missed 11 games with a left knee injury. He has scored a pair of goals since his return Dec. 30. Cross, a Simsbury, Conn., native and was selected by the Bruins in the second round of the 2007 Draft.

Harvard sophomore Alex Fallstrom missed 10 games earlier in the season with a leg injury, but has scored two goals in the last five games since his return. The Sweden native was traded from Minnesota in the Chuck Kobasew deal in October 2009.
