Boston Bruins‘ undrafted 3rd year center Colby Cave(26) received an unexpected emergency recall from affiliate Providence Bruins and was pressed into action as multi-players fell ill.

The 6’1″ 200 lbs. forward skated a healthy 18 shifts for 11:15 total ice with 2 penalty minutes, a pair of block shots and went 60% on the face off dot in a 2-1 shootout victory.

He earned his promotion to the big club with his work in the minors.

With two straight 13 goal seasons and new career high 26 assists in a full schedule of 76 AHL games last season, he’s already on pace to bump his helpers marker up to a new level in the current campaign.

He also has a nice +6 rating.

In his final pair of years for Swift Current Broncos, he averaged a point-per-WHL-game.

As he is set to turn 23-years old on the day after Christmas, he’s set to become a restricted free agency at the end of 2017/2018 but looks to be an easy in for at least a one-year extension.
