  • Bruins' John-Michael Liles: Rejoins Boston

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/1/16) Liles signed a two-year, $2 million contract with the Bruins on Friday, Sportsnet reports.

    Liles finished up the 2015-16 season in Boston after being traded in February from Carolina. The 35-year-old figures to keep providing depth on the blue line after averaging 19:19 of ice time over 17 appearances for the Bruins.

    Bruins' John-Michael Liles: Unrestricted free agency on tap

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/11/16) Liles completed the 2015-16 season with six goals and 21 points over 81 games between stints with Carolina and Boston.

    The 35-year-old blueliner is thus set to become a free agent this offseason, though Liles suggested Monday that he'd be open to a return to Boston. For the right price, Liles' experience and mobility could certainly be assets to the Bruins' back line in 2016-17.

    Bruins' John-Michael Liles: Returns to mix Friday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/2/16) Liles recorded two assists in 26:12 worth of ice time in Friday's 6-5 win over the Blues.

    After missing two games with a lower body injury, Liles was a welcome addition to the B's back line, with fellow blueliner Dennis Seidenberg sidelined, and Kevan Miller subsequently exiting Friday's contest with an injury. In 13 games in a Boston uniform to date, Liles has recorded four assists and a minus-3 rating, not eye-popping numbers, but down the stretch run, his mobility and ability in the transition game will nonetheless be assets to the Bruins.

    Bruins' John-Michael Liles: Set to play Friday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/1/16) Liles (lower body) will draw in to Friday's lineup against the Blues.

    Considered a game-time call entering the night, he should be deployed normally after missing two games due to the issue. While the 35-year-old isn't among the elite offensive blueliners, he does own two points in 12 games since joining the Bruins and can be a sneaky daily option as a member of the team's man advantage. However, he hasn't tallied a point in any of the last eight games, and faces a tough matchup again Friday against one of the league's hottest netminders in Brian Elliott.

    Bruins' John-Michael Liles: Could play Friday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/31/16) Liles (lower body) practiced again Thursday.

    Liles worked on a pairing with Zdeno Chara for most of Thursday's practice, suggesting that he has a decent shot to return to action Friday against the Blues. Since coming over from the Hurricanes in an NHL trade deadline deal, the mobile Liles has recorded two helpers in 12 games for the B's.

  • April 7, 2015: Canes' Liles Sets Up Two In Loss
    Liles set up two of the Hurricanes' three goals in Monday's narrow loss to the Sabres.With 19 assists in 54 games, Liles has been a sneaky asset in that category in deep leagues, but his overall profile still isn't especially attractive. He's not a goal scorer (only two on the season) and isn't overly physical on the defensive end, either, as evidenced by his 68 hits and 14 PIM. Moreover, he'll turn 35 in November, meaning that his production will more than likely decline from here forth.
    March 24, 2015: Canes' Liles: Three-Game Point Streak
    Liles tallied an assist and put up six shot attempts in Monday's loss to the Blackhawks.Liles has assists in his last three games, while missing one contest in between due to a lower-body injury. At 34 years old, Liles is well removed from his years of steady 40-point production with the Avalanche in the mid-to-late 2000s, but he still represents one of the better puck movers on a Hurricanes blue line that lacks high-end talent.
