Ferraro notched an assist in 8:07 worth of ice time in his debut with the Bruins in Monday's 4-3 shootout win over the Leafs. Ferraro, who skated Monday with Zac Rinaldo and Max Talbot, brings a solid set of wheels and some penalty-killing ability to the table, but he's not much of a fantasy factor while working on the Bruins' fourth line.
Ferraro (lower body) will play in Monday evening's tilt with the Hurricanes, Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe reports. Ferraro will likely be playing on the Bruins' fourth line alongside Zac Rinaldo and Maxime Talbot. The 24-year-old has yet to notch a point through 10 games this season.
Ferraro is a game-time decision for Monday's game against the Maple Leafs. Ferraro, who was claimed on waivers by the Bruins on Sunday, could get a look as a depth forward/ penalty killer with his new team, but a wait-and-see approach is in order from a fantasy perspective. In 17 career games at the NHL level to date, the former Red Wing has notched just one tally.
Ferraro (knee) was claimed by Boston after being placed on waivers by Detroit on Saturday, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports. It's unclear if Ferraro will be available to play in Toronto on Monday, but this looks like a good pickup moving forward. Ferraro was a high second round pick in 2009 and scored 27 goals in the AHL last season. Despite not scoring in even playoff games for Detroit, Ferraro impressed and seemed to earn the trust of coach Mike Babcock. The Bruins have had injuries and inconsistency plague their bottom-six forwards this season, so Ferraro should get his best opportunity to establish an NHL role for himself in Boston.
Ferraro (knee) was placed on waivers Saturday, Chuck Pleiness of the Macomb Daily reports. Ferraro is close to being cleared medically, so the Red Wings were forced to waive him Saturday, as they do not have an open spot on their 23-man roster for the winger to occupy once activated from injured reserve. Assuming he clears waivers, the former second-round pick will head to AHL Grand Rapids, where he totaled 42 points (27 goals, 15 assists) in 70 games last season. Given his offensive upside, Ferraro will likely get another opportunity with the Red Wings at some point later this season.
