The 2011 Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins said goodbye to three players in the offseason, Michael Ryder, Tomas Kaberle and Mark Recchi.

General manager Peter Chiarelli brought in forward Benoit Pouliot from the Montreal Canadiens and defenseman Joe Corvo from the Carolina Hurricanes. It is expected the remainder of the team that won the Stanley Cup will be on the ice when training camp begins on Sept. 16, 2011, therefore, there is one opening on the roster, that being at the forward position.

According to the National Hockey League's collective bargaining agreement, a rookie is a player "who has not played in 50 games in the previous season." 

The Bruins have 10 such players who have either seen time with the big club but did not see action in 50 games or will make their NHL debut in 2011-2012. 

Six are forwards while four are defensemen.
