WILMINGTON -- Enforcer/winger Brian McGrattan, signed to a two-way contract at the start of the season, this morning was assigned to the Providence Bruins (AHL) for a conditioning stint.
''He has to get some games,'' said General Manager Peter Chiarelli, here this morning watching his squad's workout at Ristuccia Arena. ''It's just three games...he'll be back with us Sunday night.''
McGrattan should be in the Baby B's lineup tonight in Providence when they face the Albany Devils. They play tomorrow, a 1 p.m matinee in Worcester, and then again Sunday at home, a 1:05 matinee at the Dunk against the Worcester Sharks.
