Boston Bruins Place Five Players On Waivers

On Tuesday, several players found themselves placed on waivers, as reported by Chris Johnston of TSN.

Among them was Alec Regula, the 23-year-old defenseman who joined the Boston Bruins' roster in June as part of a trade involving Taylor Hall and Nick Foligno with the Chicago Blackhawks.

Regula had an underwhelming season in the AHL last year, registering five goals, 21 points, and accumulating 69 penalty minutes in 51 games. If he goes unclaimed on waivers, he is expected to join the AHL's Providence Bruins.

In addition to Regula, Dan Renouf, a 29-year-old defenseman, was also waived.

Renouf had a poor 2022-2023 season with the AHL's Providence team, scoring one goal, tallying 11 points, and accumulating 57 penalty minutes in 54 games.

If he successfully clears waivers, he is likely to spend most of the 2023-2024 season in the AHL.

Anthony Richard, a forward, was another player placed on waivers. He showcased his skills in the AHL last season with 30 goals and 67 points in 60 games for Laval.

He also made contributions to the Montreal Canadiens in the 2022-23 season, recording three goals and five points in 13 appearances. If he clears waivers, the 26-year-old forward may find himself spending most of the upcoming season in the minor leagues.

Finally, Reilly Walsh, a 24-year-old defenseman, was waived by the Boston Bruins. Walsh had an impressive season in the AHL with Utica in the previous year, notching nine goals and 41 points in 71 games.

If he successfully clears waivers, he is likely to continue his development in the AHL with the Providence Bruins for the 2023-24 season.
