Zach Hamill Clears Waivers, Sent Down To Providence

Zach Hamill will once again need to work his way back up to the Boston Bruins from the AHL after clearing waivers Tuesday. Boston waived the former 2007 first-round pick after he struggled to do much of anything in 16 games played in the NHL this season. Bruins head coach Claude Julien hopes that Hamill can get stronger in Providence.

"I just think again he needs to get a little bit stronger," Julien said. "He's a guy that's capable of making plays and he's a smart individual. He came up and really had a good, strong showing but the thing is trying to maintain that level of play. Sometimes it drops and sometimes it drops because they don't play much or they get to be healthy scratches and you have to send them back to find their game again. But I really liked a lot of things he did. He sees the ice well, he understands the system very well and he's a smart player."

Hamill registered just two assists throughout all of his appearances with the Bruins this season. He played just four total games with Boston the past two years.
