Joshua KingContributor IOctober 2, 2008

The Boston Bruins released four players from training camp, including top prospect Tuukka Rask. Rask, 21, was signed to a minor-league contract last year and saw action in four games with the Bruins.  Rask finished his first year in the AHL with a 2.33 goals against average, good for 13th in the league.

Joining Rask in Providence will be Matt Lashoff, Jeff Penner, and Martin St. Pierre, provided St. Pierre clears waivers.

Lashoff, 22, scored his first NHL goal last year with the Bruins.  Lashoff played 18 games with the B's and finished the season with five points.  St. Pierre, acquired from Chicago for Pascal Pelletier, was expected to compete for a fourth line position.

The Bruins host the Islanders Saturday at 4:00 PM ET, with two preseason games remaining.
