Bollig was waived by the Flames on Monday, Chris Johnston of Sportsnet reports. If unclaimed, Bollig will be reassigned to the minors where he last played during the 2012-13 campaign while with the Rockford IceHogs. With Calgary this past season, the 29-year-old managed a meager four points in 54 contests along with 103 PIM. Even if he gets picked up by another team, the winger offers little in terms of fantasy value and should probably be left off owners' lineups.
Bollig chipped in an assist in Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Ducks. The gritty winger has been in and out of the lineup this season, with just a goal and two assists in 30 games. He does have 60 PIM to his name, but he'll need to carve out a consistent spot in the lineup to provide much fantasy value.
Bollig was a healthy scratch in Saturday's 5-2 victory over the Penguins. Bollig has had a couple healthy scratches over the last five games, as the Flames are trying to find the lineup that can get them back the success they had last season. Coaches may be a little unhappy with his 35 penalty minutes in 12 games, and it appears he may occasionally be the odd man out in Calgary.
Brandon Bollig required a procedure on his nose after the Flames were eliminated from the postseason, the Calgary Sun reports.
Brandon Bollig lit the lamp in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime victory over the Ducks in Game 3.
