Bruins Forced To Send Defenceman Down Following Major Report

Published January 18, 2024 at 11:08

Amidst a major report, the Boston Bruins find themselves compelled to make a move regarding defenseman Parker Wotherspoon.

The revelation points to Wotherspoon's emergency recall on January 6, clarifying that upon regaining full health, he will be reassigned to Providence, exempt from waivers.

This strategic maneuver allows him a window of up to 9 games with the Bruins before returning to the AHL, all without the waiver process.

Some clarity on #NHLBruins defenceman Parker Wotherspoon.

To the best of my knowledge, he was an emergency recall on January 6. Therefore, once healthy, he must go down to Providence. No Waivers.

He can play up to 9 games and then go back down. No Waivers.

The decision reflects a calculated approach by the Bruins to navigate roster dynamics while optimizing Wotherspoon's contributions within the specified game limit before his return to Providence.
