Bruins, Heinen reunite with professional tryout

Danton Heinen is looking to take a second tour of duty with the Boston Bruins. The club announced they signed the veteran forward to a professional tryout on Tuesday.

The Bruins drafted Heinen in the fourth round in 2014 and he spent the first four years of his career in Boston. His most productive season came with the Bruins in 2017-18 when he tallied 47 points in 77 games.

Heinen recorded eight goals and 14 assists while averaging 10:45 per game in 65 contests with the Pittsburgh Penguins this past season. He posted decent defensive underlying numbers, though:

The Bruins are thin up front after losing several key forwards in the offseason, so Heinen, 28, will compete for a bottom-six role.
