The Boston Bruins have recalled Seth Griffith from the Providence Bruins and sent Craig Cunningham to the American Hockey League.

Griffith would be an option for Claude Julien as the Bruins prepare for a meeting with the Colorado Avalanche Monday.

The 21-year-old has one goal in two AHL games this season. He scored 20 goals and 50 points in 69 games last season with Providence โ€“ his first year as a professional.

Boston has struggled to score through its’ first two games with just one goal in each of its’ losses to Philadelphia and Detroit.

The hope would be that Griffith, a more offensive player, can help jump start the struggling Bruins offense.

Without David Krejci in the lineup, both Milan Lucic and Loui Eriksson have started slow.

Boston needs to try anything to help its’ goal scoring woes โ€“ come on down Mr. Griffith.

If he plays Monday, it would be his NHL debut.

Griffith was selected in the fifth round (131st overall) in 2011 by Boston.
