Bruins Notebook: Is it time to give Zach Senyshyn a look up in NHL ranks?

With the NHL trade deadline still five weeks away, the Bruins still have a ways to go before outside help potentially alleviates their secondary-scoring issues on the wing.

Still, whether it be middle-six regulars like Jake DeBrusk or even fourth-line cogs like Chris Wagner and Sean Kuraly, there's been a lot left to be desired from forwards that Bruce Cassidy and the B's were counting on to help spark their respective lines this season.

Sunday's win over the Rangers saw the Bruins dip deeper down into their depth chart in order to send a message — with both Greg McKegg and Karson Kuhlman earning starts over Anders Bjork and Wagner — but if these scoring droughts and inconsistent play continue to linger, could Boston turn to Providence in search of talent with a potential higher ceiling?

While some youngsters off to hot starts like Jakub Lauko and Samuel Asselin likely need a bit more seasoning down in the AHL ranks, it's hard not to look at the overall body of work that Zach Senyshyn has compiled down in Providence this season and wonder when the 2015 first-round pick is going to get his chance.
