Report: Bruins Place 3 Players on Waivers

With the season quickly approaching and rosters needing to be trimmed down, the Boston Bruins made another wave of cuts placing three players on waivers.

As per NHL insider Frank Seravalli, a Boston Bruins forward is among the notables:

The 24-year-old forward was placed on waivers by the Boston Bruins this afternoon, and there’s no doubt the club is hoping he clears and reports to Providence of the AHL. Oskar Steen was originally selected by the Boston Bruins 165th overall in the sixth round at the 2016 Entry Draft.

The Swedish winger has spent the past three seasons in Providence, where he put up 94 points in 132 games. In 23 career games in the NHL, Steen has tallied two goals and four assists for six points, with all six of those points coming last season, where he appeared in 20 games for the Boston Bruins.

With the move to send Steen down, it now appears the battle for the fourth-line right-wing spot is down to the hometown kid Marc McLaughlin and bruising veteran Chris Wagner as the frontrunners.

The Bruins also placed two defensemen on waivers sending Connor Carrick and Nick Wolff with hopes of both reporting to the Providence Bruins. Some fans were hopeful Wolff would get an extended look as the 26-year-old 6 -foot-5 223-pound big-body defenseman would be a solid addition to an undersized defensive group. Wolff also has some offensive abilities as he recorded eight assists across 32 games for the Providence Bruins last season.

Connor Carrick, on the other hand, is a journeyman NHLer as he’s played in 241 games for four different teams across seven seasons. He has made stops with the Washington Capitals, Toronto Maple Leafs, Dallas Stars, and, most recently, the New Jersey Devils. Carrick could be a depth piece down the road. Still, when fully healthy, the Bruins are already overflowing with NHL-caliber defensemen, and that was before the addition of Anton Stralman and the emergence of Jack Ahcan.
