Bournival was waived by the Lightning on Sunday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports. Here's a guy who has been waived multiple times since debuting with the Canadiens in 2013-14. As a result, he has no fantasy appeal.
Bournival (undisclosed) will start the 2017-18 season on injured reserve, Erik Erlendsson of LightningInsider.com reports. Bournival was expected to make Tampa Bay's Opening Night roster as a depth option at forward, but his undisclosed ailment will likely prevent him from dressing for the Lightning's first game Friday against the Panthers. Either way, the 2010 third-round pick only totaled three points in 19 games with the Bolts last season, and he won't produce enough offense in 2017-18 to establish himself as a viable option in season-long fantasy formats.
Bournival (undisclosed) will sit out Saturday's preseason game and remains day-to-day, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Bournival should earn a roster spot with the Bolts for Opening Night, but there's no guarantee he will be ready to dress for the tilt. The team should update his status closer to Friday's contest against the Panthers, but it's best to consider him questionable for that game at this point.
Bournival is being evaluated for an undisclosed injury and will miss Thursday's preseason contest against Florida, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Bournival should make the 23-man roster, but whether he suits up consistently remains to be seen. The addition of Chris Kunitz in the offseason likely pushed the 25-year-old into a reserve role to start the year -- assuming this ailment doesn't keep him sidelined for an extended spell.
Bournival signed a one-year, two-way deal with the Lightning on Saturday, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Bournival appeared in 19 games with Tampa Bay last season, notching three points (two goals, one assist) and 25 shots on goal over that span. The 25-year-old forward will once again spend the majority of the 2017-18 campaign in the minors, so he won't be a viable option in season-long fantasy formats.
