P-BRUINS ACQUIRE ANDRE SAVAGE IN EXCHANGE FOR STOCK

MEMBER OF 1999 CALDER CUP CHAMPIONSHIP TEAM RETURNS

Providence, RI --

The Providence Bruins announced today that they have acquired center Andre Savage from the Philadelphia Phantoms (AHL) in exchange for center P.J. Stock. Savage, a 28-year-old native of Ottawa, Ontario, began his career with the P-Bruins in 1998-99, when he was named to the AHL All-Rookie Team while finishing second on the Bruins with 27 goals and 69 points in 63 games. His outstanding play as a rookie helped Providence to the best record in the AHL and the team's first Calder Cup championship.

Savage signed as a free agent with the Boston Bruins on June 12, 1998, following a four-year career at Michigan Tech University (WCHA). He split three seasons from 1998-2001 between Boston and Providence, helping the P-Bruins capture one Calder Cup championship and reach three straight Eastern Conference Finals. The 6'0", 195-pound Savage currently ranks 11th on the P-Bruins' career list with 55-74-129 totals in 128 games. He also had 8-13-21 totals and 10 PIM in 50 games with Boston.

Savage signed as a free agent with the Vancouver Canucks in the summer of 2001 and spent the 2001-02 season with their AHL affiliate, the Manitoba Moose. He led the team and tied for fourth in the AHL with 35 goals, while finishing second on the team overall with 61 points in 76 games. He signed as a free agent with the Philadelphia Flyers in the summer of 2002, and finished third on the Philadelphia Phantoms (AHL) with 11-31-42 totals in 64 games. He also notched 2-1-3 totals in 16 games with the Flyers. Savage had scored one goal and registered 12 PIM in eight games this season with the Phantoms.

Stock, now playing in his seventh professional season, was reassigned to Providence by the Boston Bruins on October 14. He had played in one scoreless game with Boston and tallied one goal and 2 PIM in four games with Providence. He has 27-74-74 totals and 781 PIM in 173 career AHL games, including nine with the Phantoms during the 2000-01 season. He has also played in the AHL with Providence and the Hartford Wolf Pack. Stock also has 5-21-26 totals and 523 PIM in 235 career NHL games with Boston, the New York Rangers, the Montreal Canadiens and the Philadelphia Flyers.

Good move for Philly since Brashear is on the shelf for a while. Stock is a nice heart and soul player and a fan favorite.

Stock will be playing for the Phantoms, not the Flyers. Flyers still have enough muscle without Brashear.

So is he still Boston property since he was traded by the P-Bruins and not Boston?

I think he will play for both, they tried to pick up Webb to bring a spark and Stock brings that as well.

I don't think so. They were not loaned there rights were traded and Savage was Flyers property.

That's what I am thinking, since both players were property of NHL teams, but don't minor leaguer for minor leaguer deals usually get announced through the NHL clubs?

I think Webb was also ticketed for the Phantoms. They aren't drawing as many people. The hope may be that Stock becomes a fan favorite ala Frank "The Animal" Biawloas (sp?)

Agreed. Webb wouldn't have and Stock won't see NHL time unless another rash of injuries hits. Stock is at best the 15th forward on the depth chart.

Webb would have started with the Phantoms to get in shape but was going to play for the Flyers.

He was traded in the AHL, not the NHL
his rights still belong to Boston and they can still call him up whenever they please
same why Andre Savage's rights still belong to Philadelphia
It was an AHL trade

A similar situation happened with Travis Brigley of the Ducks last year, he was traded from Cincinnati to Hershey, but still remained Ducks property until the Ducks traded him to Colorado in the off-season

OK, but why would the Flyers/Phantoms do this trade if Stock wasnt going to be able to play for the Flyers? The Phantoms wouldnt just throw way an offensive player for Stock.

Savage has been very disappointing offensively in his year + with the Phantoms.

Stock is back in the NHL where he belongs
A. Not Flyers property to call up
B. Ahead of whom? Handzus, Prims, JR, Lapointe? I doubt it.

who knows why they did the trade, but the fact of the matter remains it was only an AHL trade, Stock's rights are still with the B's and Savage's are still with the Flyers

maybe the Phantoms wanted some grit
maybe the P-Bruins wanted some offense
maybe the Bruins are trying to really piss off Stock

who knows, all I was saying is that Stock is still being paid by the Boston Bruins and they can still call him up at their desire
