Boston Bruins Have Placed Jimmy Hayes On Waivers For Intention Of A Buyout

Earlier today, Boston Bruins GM Don Sweeney announced that they have placed forward Jimmy Hayes on waivers for the purpose of a buyout. Hayes carries a $2.3 million dollar cap hit for this upcoming season. It will now count $566,667 against their cap this season and $866,667 next season.

Hayes carries a $2.3 million dollar cap hit for this upcoming season. It will now count $566,667 against their cap this season and $866,667 next season.

The buyout is most likely to make cap space for David Pastrnak who is still unsigned. Also, any of the leftover cap will most likely be spread out between Ryan Spooner and Tim Schaller. It is no surprise that the Bruins have decided to do this. Hayes played most of the last season from the 9th floor of the TD Garden.

He was a third line guy at best and not a good one at that. He did not produce while he was here and that is the bottom line. Hayes was placed on the 4th line for a bit to try to spark something in him but that did not work. He eventually just took a roster spot from one of the younger guys that were both better than he was and needed the experience at the NHL level.

Jimmy Hayes who was acquired from the Florida Panthers has been nothing but frustrating. When the Bruins traded him he was coming off a career year. Since then he has been nothing but a disappointment. He is only 27 but has not shown much improvement. Hayes played 58 games this year and registered only 2 goals and 3 assists. Also in 75 games of the 2015-16 season, he scored only 13 goals and 16 assists.

He has been in the league for six seasons skating in 301 games for the Chicago Blackhawks, Florida Panthers, and the Boston Bruins. In those 301 games, he has tallied 51 goals and 49 assists.

Hayes who is a hometown boy grew up in Dorchester and played hockey at BC, and was supposed to be a great addition to the team. Who would have thought that a guy playing for his hometown team would be such a disappointment?

Boston Bruins Already Having Injury Problem

Bruins Injury Updates Have Begun

Today GM Don Sweeney has given an update on a few injured players.

Matt Beleskey who which is not a big deal since he might not even make the team is day-to-day with a foot contusion. This happened is the B’s last preseason game against the Montreal Canadiens

Jakub Forsbacka Karlsson is day-to-day as well with an upper-body injury that he received in the game against Detroit on September 19th. Hopefully, this is nothing because he was a kid that was slotted to make a roster spot.

Last is Torrey Krug who will be out for at least three weeks pending a re-evaluation at that time. He was hit in the jaw with the puck and suffered a non-displaced fracture. It occurred in the game against Detroit.

Also on another note, the team has sent Jack Studnicka and Kyle Keyser back to the OHL.

The biggest injury is with JFK, now some may say Krug but I think the B’s can find a replacement for him. McAvoy will most likely take over on the power play and maybe this opens the door for a guy like Rob O’Gara or Matt Grzelcyk. Other than these few hiccups Boston should be a fun team to watch this season. Especially if they stay as young as they have in camp and the preseason games.

Bruins Grab First Win Of The Preseason

Boston took on the Canadiens last night in Quebec City and came out with a victory. Last nights team was all about the kids. Unfortnitally the game was not aired on TV in Boston. the Bruins defeated Montreal 3-2.

From what I have read from people that saw the game is that the kids were very impressive. Tim Schaller, Anders Bjork, and Jesse Gabrielle were the goal scorers. As the whole, the team seems like they are in a good spot to be competitive this season. Especially with all of the prospects on the roster that are eyeing a spot in the big club.

The most impressive was last years NCAA Hobey Baker Finalist Anders Bjork. Bjork scored his first goal in a Bruins uniform last night. Also, the word on the street is that his chemistry with the team is growing. Look for him to grab a top-six spot on the roster heading into the season.

Here is Anders Bjork on his first goal in. A very hockey guy answer:
