Boston Bruins Resign Depth Forward Tim Schaller

On Wednesday, the Boston Bruins re-signed unrestricted free agent Tim Schaller. The contract terms is a one-year deal worth $775k.

The Merrimack, NH native is 26-years-old played in 59 games last season for the Bruins scoring 7 goals and 7 assists. Schaller spent the majority of his time playing on the fourth line for the B’s averaging 12:16 minutes of ice time a game.

In the playoffs, he skated in six games for the Boston Bruins netting one goal and was asked to play more minutes for Boston averaging 13:29 minutes per game in the Ottawa series.

He played his first two seasons as a member of the Buffalo Sabres and signed with Boston prior to the 2016 season to a one-year two-way contract. Schaller went undrafted out of Providence College where he played four seasons for the Friars from 09-10-to-12-13. Schaller was a captain of the Friars ice hockey team in his senior year and played alongside fellow Bruin Noel Acciari who was a freshman in the 2012-13 season at Providence.

Schaller, like the Acciari signing of a week ago, is a depth deal meant to sure up the bottom six forward group. He adds a layer of physicality racking up  23 penalty minutes last season for the Black and Gold and wasn’t afraid to create contact on the boards. Schaller has shown the ability to create scoring opportunities for others and find the back of the net himself, this is the type of signing that Bruins fans should like.

With the Schaller signing the chances of the Boston Bruins resigning Drew Stafford are now even lower. The two sides had kept in contact but Don Sweeney was alluding to Stafford not being part of the team’s plans going forward.

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:
