Well, at least Zach Hamill seems to be coming along in his fourth pro season.
Typically a slow starter, the Bruins’ 2007 first-round draft pick has totaled a team-high 10 points (including a team-high five goals) through the Providence Bruins’ first 14 games.
The Bruins’ AHL farm club has been terribly inconsistent this season, but sits second in the Atlantic Division as of Tuesday morning with a 6-7-1-0 record. The P-Bruins’ 13 points put them eight back of first-place St. John’s. And not to rain on Providence’s parade, but Worcester sits in fourth with 10 points and six games in hand.
Providence is tied for the most goals allowed in the entire AHL with 44.
Here are a few other quick-hit P-Bruins notes on their season so far:
•Veteran Chris Clark signed a PTO with the team last week and skated in two games over the weekend. He failed to record a point as was minus-1.
•The first month of the season saw Tyler Randell (October 16), Zach McKelvie (November 5) and Craig Cunningham (October 28) all record their first professional goal.
•Rookie Carter Camper leads the team with six assists and is second in points with eight.
•Jamie Arniel has started slow this season with just 1-2-3 totals and a minus-6 rating while skating in every game. Defenseman Colby Cohen has also been quiet with three assists and a minus-4 rating.
