Szwarz was reassigned to AHL Providence on Monday. Szwarz stuck around with Boston's camp for its first 10 days before being cut. The Bruins then recalled the player to participate in their final preseason contest Saturday, a 1-0 loss to Chicago. Expect the veteran forward to spend the vast majority of 2017-18 in the AHL, as the Boston organization is loaded with young, talented forwards.
Szwarz was recalled and played in Boston's final preseason game Saturday, falling 1-0 to Chicago. The veteran forward's participation in Saturday's contest allowed the Bruins to rest some of their regular forwards, though he doesn't have much of a chance to make the Opening Night roster. Boston has a plethora of talented young forwards in their system, so a mid-season recall for Szwarz is doubtful, as well.
Szwarz was placed on waivers for the purpose of being assigned to AHL Providence on Monday. Szwarz was given a solid look during Boston's training camp, though ultimately he'll start 2017-18 with Providence. The 26-year-old winger enjoyed his best professional season in 2016-17, tallying 54 points in 65 AHL games, though he remains an unlikely candidate to be recalled to Boston throughout the course of the coming campaign.
Szwarz inked a one-year, two-way contract with the Bruins on Saturday. Szwarz has 35 NHL contests under his belt in which he notched four goals and 21 PIM. This past season with AHL Providence, the former fourth-round pick racked up an impressive 54 points in 65 outings along with a plus-20 rating. If the 26-year-old can continue to perform in the minors, it won't be long before he gets promoted to the big club.
Jordan Szwarz was assigned to AHL Springfield.
