The Bruins have assigned Malcolm Subban, Zach Trotman, Carter Camper, and Justin Florek to their AHL affiliate in Providence.

They have 32 players in camp, including injured forward Bobby Robins (knee).

The remaining players participated in a scrimmage today. The White team beat the Black Team, 4-1. Jarome Iginla, Daniel Paille, Jordan Caron, and Zdeno Chara scored for White. Loui Eriksson scored Black’s only goal.

The goalies rotated between the teams. Here are the rosters:

White:

Milan Lucic-David Krejci-Jarome Iginla
Jordan Caron-Ryan Spooner-Nick Johnson
Daniel Paille-Gregory Campbell-Shawn Thornton

Zdeno Chara-Kevan Miller
Torey Krug-Adam McQuaid
David Warsofsky

Black:

Brad Marchand-Patrice Bergeron-Loui Eriksson
Carl Soderberg-Chris Kelly-Reilly Smith
Matt Lindblad-Craig Cunningham-Matt Fraser

Dennis Seidenberg-Dougie Hamilton
Matt Bartkowski-Johnny Boychuk
Mike Moore

* Zdeno Chara took his power-play shifts in front of the net. Torey Krug and David Krejci were the point men. Iginla and Milan Lucic were down low.

* Carl Soderberg and Brad Marchand alternated PP shifts on the second unit. So did Dennis Seidenberg and Johnny Boychuk. The three regulars: Eriksson, Patrice Bergeron, and Dougie Hamilton.

* Ryan Spooner played with pace. Coach Claude Julien noted Spooner remains in the picture for a varsity spot. The Bruins project Spooner as a full-time center. Spooner is not displacing Krejci or Bergeron. Chris Kelly and Gregory Campbell could be at risk if the Bruins believe Spooner is ready.

* The Bruins will host Washington on Monday at TD Garden. NESN will carry the game.
