      Penguins' David Warsofsky: Recalled from minors Thursday

      The Penguins have recalled Warsofsky from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. Prior to the call-up, Warsofsky sprinkled the scoresheet with modest totals playing for the Baby Pens, including six points, six PIM and a plus-5 rating through 13 games. The parent club Penguins are expected to be without blueliner Olli Maatta (upper body) for at least a month so Warsofsky could end up with some playing time in his absence.

    • Waived by Penguins

      News: David Warsofsky has been waived by the Penguins, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
      Analysis: Since being drafted by the Blues with a fourth-round pick in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft, David Warsofsky has seen just 10 games in the NHL. The big knock on Warsofsky is his size. He has a diminutive 5-foot-8, 170 pound frame and that is less than ideal for a defenseman. Look for him in the minors ahead of a new season.
    • Warsofsky Signs With Pittsburgh

      News: David Warsofsky signed a one-year, two-way deal with the Penguins on Wednesday, the Boston Herald reports.
      Analysis: The smallish David Warsofsky, who recorded 15 points in 40 games for AHL Providence this past season, brings good mobility to the table, though ultimately his fantasy utility hinges on whether or not he sees power play duty if/when he sees action with the Penguins. If so, he carries some sleeper value in deeper formats.
    • Bruins Reassign Warsofsky

      News: David Warsofsky (groin) was activated from IR and reassigned to AHL Providence, Mark Divver of the Providence Journal reports.
      Analysis: David Warsofsky took part in a full practice Tuesday to convince the Bruins his groin was no longer bothering him, but with Zdeno Chara also set to return in advance of Thursday's game, the team didn't have room for the returns of both players. As a result, Warsofsky will head back to the minors, where he'll be forced to wait for another injury on the Boston blue line to open up an opportunity.
    • Bruins' Warsofsky Practices In Full

      News: David Warsofsky (groin) logged a full practice Tuesday, Joe Haggerty of CSN New England reports.
      Analysis: The Bruins received a bounty of good news on the injury front Tuesday, as all of David Krejci, Zdeno Chara and David Warsofsky were able to turn in full practices after missing extensive time due to their respective injuries. While the development would seemingly bode well for Warsofsky's chances of returning to the game action in the near future, Chara's impending activation may end up costing him a spot with the parent club. If the Bruins decide that either Zach Trotman or Joe Morrow is a better fit on their bottom pairing, Warsofsky would likely be forced to head back to AHL Providence once he's fully healthy.
    • Bruins' Warsofsky Practices

      News: David Warsofsky (groin) participated in practice Saturday.
      Analysis: While it's unclear when David Warsofsky will be available to re-join the Bruins' blue line mix, the unit is still dealing with injuries, so whether Warsofsky sticks around or heads to the AHL once he's up to speed presumably hinges on the health of of his fellow defensemen at that point.
    • Bruins' Warsofsky Starting To Skate

      News: David Warsofsky (groin) skated prior to Thursday's practice.
      Analysis: While both David Warsofsky and Zdeno Chara (ankle) worked out on their own rather than with the team's healthy skaters, their presence on the ice could allow them to join the rest of the team for practice perhaps at some point next week. Warsofsky is about at the midway point of the two-to-four week recovery timetable he was given back on Nov. 9.
    • Bruins Place Warsofsky On IR

      News: David Warsofsky (groin) was transferred to injured reserve Monday.
      Analysis: With David Warsofsky set to miss the next two-to-four weeks with the groin injury, the Bruins decided to move the blueliner to IR in order to open up a roster spot for Torey Krug (finger), who will return to action Monday. Warsofsky is expected to return to AHL Province once he's recovered from the groin ailment.
    • Bruins' Warsofsky Out 2-4 Weeks

      News: GM Peter Chiarelli confirmed Sunday that David Warsofsky will be out 2-4 weeks with a groin strain, the Bruins' official site reports.
      Analysis: Once David Warsofsky returns to action, he could well head back to the AHL, depending on the health of the rest of the Bruins' blue line corps when that time arrives.
    • Bruins' Warsofsky To Miss Time

      Analysis: David Warsofsky, who had been filling in on the Bruins' blue line while fellow mobile blueliner Torey Krug (among others) was sidelined, recorded an assist in his four games with the big club. Upon his return to health, a return to AHL Providence seems plausible, depending on the health of Boston's other defensemen at that time.
