All 17,565 tickets for the Bruins' Black and Gold scrimmage Tuesday at TD Garden have been distributed. The game will take place at 7 p.m.
The Bruins will recall additional players from Providence to participate in the scrimmage. The team has hired referees for the night to replicate a normal game setting.
- The team has yet to decide whether to sign Jay Pandolfo after camp. Pandolfo, who is attending on a tryout, played for Claude Julien in New Jersey in 2006-07. “I thought he was by far our best penalty killer that year,” Julien said. “The one thing I’ve always said about Jay is that he’s never gotten the credit that he deserved. You’ve got players on teams that are unsung heroes. He’s certainly one of those guys that I’ve always seen as an unsung hero, not just when I was in New Jersey, but even before I got there.”
- The Bruins officially declared Tim Thomas a suspended player at 10 a.m. today. The Bruins are responsible for carrying Thomas’s $5 million pro-rated cap hit.
- The Bruins will practice on Tuesday morning at the Garden. The practice is closed to the public.
- The Bruins will not print tickets for season ticketholders. Tickets will be available online only for printing.
