Randell was released from his training camp tryout with the Sabres on Sunday, TSN reports. Randell will hope to land a minor-league contract with AHL Rochester or some other club after failing to earn a deal from Buffalo. The 27-year-old played 27 games for the Bruins in 2015-16 and could probably add a solid veteran presence to an AHL locker room.
Randell will test the waters of training camp with Buffalo, TSN reports. Randell -- who was drafted in the sixth round of the 2009 NHL Draft by the Bruins -- has 27 games of NHL experience, but is more likely competing for a spot with AHL Rochester if he can prove himself to team brass. The winger has never been a prolific scorer -- his best minor-league campaign was 20 points in 2014-15, so in the unlikely event he earns a permanent deal from the club, he won't offer much in terms of fantasy production.
Randell was placed on waivers by the Senators on Tuesday, James Mirtle of The Athletic reports. Randell spent the 2016-17 campaign in the minors with AHL Providence, where he garnered one goal and nine helpers in 59 outings. While he can rack up hits and he forechecks well, the winger doesn't have much of a scoring touch, which limits his fantasy upside. The 26-year-old figures to once again spent the bulk of the upcoming campaign in the minors.
Randell signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Senators on Saturday, Darren Dreger of TSN reports. Randell's most notable stat from his time with Boston's program was his knack for the sin bin, clocking 341 PIM in 205 AHL and NHL games over the past four seasons. He did have an impressive outing in 2015-16, where he found the back of the net six times in 27 games, while only averaging about seven minutes of ice time. He was waived the next season and hasn't seen NHL minutes since. It's still unlikely he cracks a lineup with the big club, but in the case he does, expect him to take a fourth-line, enforcer role.
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.
