Ex-Bruin joins the Bruins

Matt Delahey will attend a National Hockey League training camp this fall, skating with the Boston Bruins.

The 21-year-old defenceman is hoping to regain the prospect status he lost when he failed to sign with the New Jersey Devils.

The Devils drafted Delahey in the fourth round (112th overall) of the 2008 NHL entry draft, but declined to extend him a contract offer over the summer.

The Moose Jaw native signed an amateur tryout agreement with the Bruins after fielding inquiries from a handful of NHL teams. Delahey is in tough to stick with the Bruins, but if he fails to make the big club, he’ll still have an opportunity to impress their American Hockey League affiliate in Providence, RI.

“They invited me to their camp because they were low on D in Providence,” Delahey said. “I think they’re going to give me a good chance, and if not I’m going to make a chance for myself.”

Delahey came to Chilliwack last season in a trade-deadline deal for Mitch McColm. He had nine points in 26 regular season games for the Bruins and was a force in the playoffs as Chilliwack pushed the Tri-City Americans to six games.
