sad news :( Carl Corazzini :(


November 15, 2004

The Providence Bruins announced today that they have acquired defenseman Darrel
Scoville from the Hershey Bears in exchange for right wing Carl Corazzini.
Scoville is expected to join the team in time for practice on Tuesday. The
Bruins also announced today that defenseman Steve Munn has been released from
his tryout contract.

“We are very happy to bring Darryl to the Bruins organization,” said Bruins head
coach Scott Gordon. “He fills two needs for us. First, he is a proven
offensive defenseman in the AHL, and will add another dimension to our defense
corps. The other need is it opens up some room on our forward lines. We had
too many forwards and not enough ice time to go around, so this deal will give
Carl a new opportunity in Hershey. ”

Scoville, a 29-year-old native of Swift Current, Saskatchewan, is playing in his
seventh professional season out of Merrimack College (HE). He began his
professional career in 1998-99 with the Saint John Flames (AHL), and played with
the team through the 2000-01 season. Scoville played in the 2000 AHL All-Star
Classic, and was a member of the Flames’ 2000-01 Calder Cup championship team.
He has twice ranked among the top-10 scoring defensemen in the AHL (2000-01 and
2003-04), and has 46-121-167 totals and 460 PIM in 353 career AHL games with
Saint John, Syracuse and Hershey. He has one assist and 12 PIM in 16 NHL games
with Calgary and Columbus.

“I’m really excited about coming to Providence,” said Scoville. “It’s never a
great feeling to be traded, but I’ve always heard great things about Providence
from other players. I know the Bruins have a really strong team, and I’m
thrilled to have the chance to join the club and hopefully be a good contributor
to the team.”

The Bruins will play four games this week, beginning on Wednesday, November 17,
when they visit the Bridgeport Sound Tigers at 7:05 p.m. The Bruins return home
to host the Springfield Falcons on Friday, November 19 at 7:05 p.m., before
visiting the Portland Pirates on Saturday night at 7:05 p.m. The weekend
concludes on Sunday, November 21 at 4:05 p.m., when the Black and Gold hosts the
Philadelphia Phantoms.

The Bruins will host their annual Thanksgiving Food Drive at this weekend’s
games. The Bruins’ wives and girlfriends will be collecting non-perishable food
items in the Dunkin’ Donuts Center box office lobby on Friday from 5:45 p.m. –
7:30 p.m., and on Sunday from 2:45 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. All food items collected
