Bruins recall Danton Heinen and Ryan White joins with PTO

 
Danton Heinen and Ryan White
Yesterday it was announced that the Bruins have recalled forward Danton Heinen from Providence (AHL) and forward Ryan White joined the team on a Professional Tryout Agreement (PTO).

My initial thoughts on the Bruins adding Ryan White was why, what the f... and that hasn't changed. If you remember White use to play for the Montreal Canadiens and is nothing more than a fourth liner who gives cheapshots and plays wreckless. Especially with all of the penalties now being called in the NHL, he is going to do nothing but hurt the team.
