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.
Randell has signed a one-year, two-way deal with the Bruins, the Boston Herald reports. Randell, who finished the 2015-16 season with six goals and 47 PIM in 27 games for the Bruins, will thus reprise his role as a depth forward for the team. The 25-year-old's fantasy value will remain limited in 2016-17, however, with fourth-line likely once again on tap for Randell.
Randell finished the 2015-16 season with six goals and 47 PIM in 27 games for the Bruins. Randell, who was scored the winner in four of his five fights this season, per the Boston Herald, isn't going to find himself on too many fantasy rosters in 2016-17, but he could well stick around with the big club again as a fourth-liner after surprisingly making the B's squad out of camp.
