      Bruins' Matt Irwin: Heads to AHL

      After clearing waivers, Irwin is slated to report to AHL Providence, CSN New England reports. After recording a minus-5 rating over the Bruins' first two games, Irwin heads down to the minors, while fellow blueliner Zdeno Chara has rejoined the mix after being activated from IR on Monday. The 27-year-old Irwin brings experience (155 career regular season NHL contests) and some offensive upside to the table, but he'll need to tidy things up on the defensive side of things in order to merit a call-up.

      Bruins' Matt Irwin: Waived by Bruins

      Irwin has been placed on waivers by the Bruins, CSN New England reports. Irwin was a minus-2 in Saturday's loss to Montreal and is a minus-5 overall in two games to date, so the move is not a huge surprise, though it's uncertain what the B's plans are for the blueliner if he clears waivers.

      Bruins D Matt Irwin Minus-3 in season opener

      Matt Irwin had a rough regular season debut with the Bruins, recording a minus-3 rating, while committing a couple of defensive miscues that led to Jets' goals in the Bruins' 6-2 loss Thursday, CSN New England reports. With veteran blueliners Zdeno Chara and Dennis Seidenberg out of the lineup, the B's defensive corps as a whole left something to be desired Thursday. With Chara eyeing a return to action soon and Colin Miller in reserve, the B's could choose to make some adjustments in advance of Saturday's game against Montreal, possibly at the expense of Irwin.

    • Irwin Inks One-Year Deal With Bruins

      News: Matt Irwin signed a one-year, $800,000 contract with the Bruins on Friday.
      Analysis: Matt Irwin, who tallied eight goals and 11 assists in 53 games with the Sharks last season, has a chance to establish himself as the Bruins' sixth defender in training camp. However, he will have to beat out the likes of Joe Morrow and Zach Trotman for the spot. Either way, he provides the Bruins with some much-needed depth at defense.
    • Sharks' Irwin Gets Goal In Lineup Return

      News: Matt Irwin netted a goal on one of his two shot attempts in Saturday's shootout win over the Flyers.
      Analysis: After serving as a healthy scratch in the Sharks' previous game, Matt Irwin certainly made his presence felt in his return. In addition to the goal, he finished with 22:11 TOI -- about five and a half more minutes than he's been averaging for the season. With Mirco Mueller quite likely out for the remainder of the season with a left hand injury, Irwin should be able to enjoy a regular role on the Sharks' blue line.
    • Sharks' Irwin To Play Saturday

      News: Matt Irwin (upper body) will rejoin the lineup Saturday against the Blackhawks, David Pollak of the San Jose Mercury News reports.
      Analysis: The upper-body injury cost Matt Irwin the last three games, but since he had been playing well prior to hitting the press box, coach Todd McLellan will make lineup room for the blueliner right away now that he's healthy. Scott Hannan will be scratched in place of Irwin.

    • Sharks' Irwin Still Day-To-Day

      News: Matt Irwin (upper body) has reported improvement with his condition and logged a full practice Wednesday, but is still in the day-to-day phase of his recovery, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
      Analysis: Wednesday marked Matt Irwin's first full session with the team since sustaining the injury last Friday, so he may require another skate or two with the team before returning to action. The Sharks will see how Irwin feels Thursday morning before rendering a decision on his status for that night's game versus the Predators, but Saturday's tilt with the Blackhawks may represent a more viable return date for the defenseman.
