McIver was waived by the Bruins on Sunday, the Boston Globe reports.
The Canucks have re-signed defenseman Nathan McIver. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The Sports Xchange reports Canucks D Shane O'Brien's apology after lashing out at management for giving him the impression he needed to fight more may have kept him in the organization, but it hasn't helped him get back on the ice. O'Brien was a healthy scratch for a third-straight game -- twice since he questioned General Manager Mike Gillis publicly -- Saturday against Chicago, and in the meantime the Canucks made a trade to re-acquire a similarly tough depth defenseman in Nathan McIver, sending seldom-used grinding RW Mike Brown to Anaheim in exchange for the gritty defender they lost on waivers back in October. McIver has been assigned to Manitoba in the AHL, but his acquisition was likely not lost on O'Brien, who was acquired from Tampa Bay shortly after McIver was lost in early October to do a lot of the same things. "We got him for depth," coach Alain Vigneault said. "In our mind, Nathan McIver is a seventh, eighth, ninth defenseman in an organization depending how he is playing. I think on your depth chart you need to have a tough defenseman that you can call up and you need to have a puck-moving defenseman that you can call up, depending on who gets hurt and who can't play. For me, he's the toughness part."
According to The Canadian Press, the Canucks shipped forward Mike Brown to the Canucks on Wednesdat in exchange for D Nathan McIver.
Ducks rookie D Nathan McIver has cleared waivers, but did not get sent to the AHL.
