Boston Bruins‘ 1st round pick in the 2007 draft (#8 overall) center Zach Hamill(52) had to clear waivers before being reassigned to the AHL Providence Bruins. He’s on the fourth year of his entry level contract.
Usually players can go up and down between leagues for the first three years, which was the case with him. But this season since he’s already had three full campaigns in the AHL (due to a late birthday and initial contract signing), he has to clear waivers each time he’s called up and sent back down.
The Bruins have a lot of depth at the center position, so this may be his last season in the system.
