Randell was placed on waivers Monday, along with two teammates, in order to reassign him to the minors, Joe Haggerty of CSN New England reports. Randell lit the lamp six times in just 27 outings last season, while averaging less than seven minutes per night. Despite capitalizing on his limited opportunities, the 25-year-old will be reassigned to AHL Providence along with Seth Griffith and Tim Schaller. Barring injury, all three players figure to spend the majority of the season in the minors further developing their game.
Randell has signed a one-year, two-way deal with the Bruins, the Boston Herald reports. Randell, who finished the 2015-16 season with six goals and 47 PIM in 27 games for the Bruins, will thus reprise his role as a depth forward for the team. The 25-year-old's fantasy value will remain limited in 2016-17, however, with fourth-line likely once again on tap for Randell.
Randell finished the 2015-16 season with six goals and 47 PIM in 27 games for the Bruins. Randell, who was scored the winner in four of his five fights this season, per the Boston Herald, isn't going to find himself on too many fantasy rosters in 2016-17, but he could well stick around with the big club again as a fourth-liner after surprisingly making the B's squad out of camp.
Randell scored the Bruins' only goal in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Kings. Randell, who returned to the B's lineup Friday night against Anaheim, had spent the previous month as a healthy scratch prior to that. In 27 games for the team to date overall, Randell has chipped in six points (all goals) and 47 PIM, but his fantasy upside is limited in his fourth-line role.
Randell has been recalled from his conditioning stint with AHL Providence, Joe Haggerty of CSN New England reports. Randell was sent to the AHL affiliate to get his legs back after sitting out four straight games. It appears one game was enough to do so, and he'll now rejoin the Bruins. The 24-year-old has averaged just 6:48 of ice time and has just five points (all goals) in his 25 games with the parent organization this season, so his value in fantasy leagues remains minimal.
