Bruins place former top defensive prospect on waivers

Boston — Defenseman Jakub Zboril was placed on waivers by the Boston Bruins on Wednesday due to his lack of NHL opportunities this season.

The 26-year-old Zboril has participated in 19 AHL games for Providence this year; he hasn’t been in an NHL game since April, toward the conclusion of the regular season.

By Frank Seravalli’s account, “the Bruins are accommodating [Zboril’s] request to see if another team is interested in giving him an opportunity.”

This season in Providence, Zboril is without a goal, has seven assists, a minus-5 rating, and 17 penalty minutes. Last year, he participated in 22 NHL games, recording three assists in addition to his first career goal. He participated in 42 NHL games in 2020–21, recording nine assists, and 10 NHL games the season before.

With a record of 18-5-3, the Bruins have used defensemen Mason Lohrei for 12 games, Ian Mitchell for 11 games, and Parker Wotherspoon for 3 games.
