Chris Clark will report to Providence after signing a professional tryout agreement (PTO). Clark attended main camp on a tryout basis. He was released from his tryout the day before the season-opening loss to Philadelphia.

The former Washington captain could provide bottom-six depth for the big club once he regains his legs and timing. Clark skated mostly as a fourth-line right wing during the preseason. In the finale, Clark fought hard-nosed Islanders forward Micheal Haley and suffered a broken nose.

Clark remains free to sign an NHL contract with any team. Signing Clark to a PTO does not guarantee the veteran forward’s rights to the Bruins.

Providence next plays Friday against Manchester at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center.
