Cantin signed on with the Bruins toward the end of last season as a free agent. He is a 6'1 201 pound defenseman.
Last season he had 10 goals and 31 assists and 78 penalty minutes in the OHL. So the penalty minutes show he obviously isn't afraid to mix it up a little bit.
This year he played a little bit with the Providence Bruins but the performance really wasnt there so after 19 games he was sent to the ECHL. There he so far has put up 6 points in 16 games. It will be interesting to see how much playing time if he gets if any while here.
The Tigers now have tremendous depth on defense with Mark Katic being loaned there today and now his acquisition. Its always good to have depth especially in playoff a run late in the season because of how beat up people are it makes it easier to get injured.
