WILMINGTON – The Bruins rookies completed their third day of on-ice sessions at Ristuccia Arena. They will travel to Long Island today and play a pair of exhibition games against the Islanders rookies tomorrow and Tuesday.

Michael Hutchinson will start tomorrow’s game. Hutchinson, a second-year pro, should be Anton Khudobin’s backup in Providence this season.

Some forward lines to look for: Ryan Spooner centering Yannick Riendeau and Tyler Randell, and Carter Camper between Kyle MacKinnon and Jared Knight.

On the back end, Dougie Hamilton should skate with Marc Cantin. David Warsofsky and Zach McKelvie could also see time together.

* The rookies had some five-on-five work and special teams action today. Hamilton and Warsofsky saw plenty of time on the blue line quarterbacking their respective power plays.
