The Bruins have recalled left wing Frank Vatrano from Providence and sent forward Alexander Khokhlachev back to the AHL, the team announced Friday. Vatrano, an East Longmeadow native who played his college hockey at UMass Amherst, has 10 goals in 10 games this season. A first-year pro, Vatrano signed with the B's as an undrafted free agent last March after deciding he would forgo his final two years of college eligibility. Recalled on Tuesday due to David Pastrnak's foot injury, Khokhlachev skated in two games for the Bruins during his callup. Khokhlachev, who was tied for the AHL lead in points at the time of his callup, skated with Loui Eriksson and David Krejci in Pastrnak's absence.
