Bruins Place Zach Hamill On Waivers

According to Joe Haggerty of Comcast Sportsnet New England, the Boston Bruins have placed fourth-year center Zach Hamill on re-entry waivers on Monday. Hamill can be claimed by any team before noon Tuesday, and the claiming team would be on the hook for all of his $1,316,667 salary for this season.

The ultimate hope in all of this is that the 23-year old Hamill will clear waivers and will rejoin the Providence Bruins in the AHL, for the time being. Hamill was called up by the team after third-line center Rich Peverley was battling an array of injuries a few weeks ago. However, Hamill's chances of returning to the Bruins may be slimmer then they appear.

Due to the fact that Hamill was on the team longer than 10 days, he was required by NHL rules to go through re-entry waivers before having the ability to be demoted to Providence. Because of his youth and affordable price tag, there could be teams around the NHL that could choose to take a chance on the Boston Bruins' 2007 first round selection.
