Published

Boston Bruins

There aren’t too many roster spots open for the Boston Bruins.

What’s the latest on the contract status for Boston Bruins GM Don Sweeney as he enters his walk year?

Two more players from the 2021 free-agent splash the Boston Bruins made this offseason will make their debut for the Bruins Tuesday night in New York.

2021 first-round pick Fabian Lysell will also be in the lineup for a second straight game. 

Are the Boston Bruins still a potential landing spot for Tomas Hertl on the NHL trade market?

Nazem Kadri wants a ‘second chance’; isn’t he on his fourth or fifth?

That and more in the latest BHN Puck Links:

Based on what Boston Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy said recently, Ullmark and rookie Jeremy Swayman will battle it out until one of the Bruins goalies earns the starter’s job. (BHN)

As my BHN partner-in-crime, Joe Haggerty, wrote Tuesday, there are not too many roster spots open on a veteran-laden Boston Bruins training camp roster. (BHN)

With all due respect to my friends at Colorado Hockey Now, is it really news that Colorado Avalanche forward Nazem Kadri is looking for a second chance? How many times have we read that story and how many times will Kadri botch another chance to show he’s too immature to be in the NHL? (Colorado Hockey Now)

Like the Boston Bruins, the New York Islanders don’t have a lot of roster spots open, and despite his gritty play last season and in the playoffs, Ross Johnston is an uphill battle to make the cut. (NYI Hockey Now)

If the Ukraine Hockey League doesn’t throw the book at Andrey Denyskin for his despicable racist gesture at Jalen Smereck, then any player looking to play in Europe should boycott the league. In fact, Denyskin should be banned from any league in the world for now! (Sportsnet)

Toronto Maple Leafs star center Auston Matthews was back at Leafs practice Tuesday. (TSN)

Will Matthews be ready for Opening Night? What’s the latest on Boston Bruins GM Don Sweeney and his contract status? Same with Marc Bergevin and the Montreal Canadiens? Tampa Bay Lightning GM Julian BriseBois got extended on Tuesday and women referees are coming to the AHL. (Insider Trading)

They need Hertl even if somehow Coyle makes the second line and he won’t. Patrice will soon be gone Krecji already is strike while the iron is hot soon the cupboard will be bare.
