The Bruins activated Adam McQuaid from injured reserve Tuesday and sent Colin Miller to Providence. McQuaid is set to return from a concussion suffered on Jan. 5. Prior to his injury, he was being used as a top-four defenseman and frequent partner of Zdeno Chara. Colin Miller is the odd man out because he is the only one of the Bruins'€™ eight defensemen who can be assigned to the AHL without requiring waivers. Such a situation is not ideal, as Miller is fifth among Bruins defensemen in games played and is one of the key players the team intended to develop at the NHL this season.
