Cunningham has skated in 27 games this season with Providence, notching nine goals (third on the team) and five assists for 14 points.

The winger has skated in a total of 178 games with the Providence Bruins from 2010-13, accruing 54 goals and 42 assists for 96 points. Prior to joining the P-Bruins, the 23-year-old played in total of 330 games in the WHL (Western Hockey League) between his time with Vancouver Giants (2006-11) and the Portland Winterhawks (2010-11). At the WHL level, the forward racked up 103 goals and 161 assists with a plus-50 rating.

With this recall, it could mean that Jarome Iginla may miss some time with the hand injury he sustained in his fight against Canucks Ryan Kesler on Saturday. According to reports, Jarome Iginla missed practice today.

In other Bruins news, forward Daniel Paille has been having concussion symptoms. Bruins coach Claude Julien has said that forward Loui Eriksson hasn't even come to the rink so that's not a good sign.
