Bruins recall goalie Tuukka Rask to replace injured Manny Fernandez

BOSTON - The Boston Bruins recalled goalie Tuukka Rask from Providence of the AHL to replace injured Manny Fernandez.

Fernandez went on injured reserve Nov. 9 with a left knee strain after hurting it during practice 10 days earlier. It's the same knee he injured last year with the Minnesota Wild.

Rask has a 7-1 record with a 1.98 goals-against average for Providence this season. A native of Finland, Rask was the 21st overall pick by Toronto in the 2005 draft and traded to Boston in June 2006 in exchange for goalie Andrew Raycroft.
