Boll was called up from AHL San Diego on Friday. The Ducks needed the extra depth with Patrick Eaves (illness) and Michael Liambas (undisclosed) still unavailable. Boll, a physical winger, gets the last laugh here, as the Ducks exposed him to waivers in mid-December.
Boll (undisclosed) was waived by Anaheim on Sunday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports. Boll had been on injured reserve, but this roster move must mean he's healthy. The 31-year-old forward has one assist in eight games this season.
Boll (undisclosed) is listed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site. Boll was rocked by two punches during his scrap with LA's Andy Andreoff in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Kings, so the fact that he's dealing with an injury doesn't come as much of a surprise. The 31-year-old forward, who has potted one goal in eight games this season, can be considered out indefinitely.
Boll was a healthy scratch during Tuesday's 6-2 win over Philadelphia. Boll averaged just 4:01 of ice time through the first six games of the season, so with Anaheim returning forwards to the lineup, it wasn't surprising to see him sit this contest out. He hasn't posted a double-digit point total since the 2010-11 campaign, so there aren't many fantasy settings where he moves the needle, and especially since Boll could have trouble slotting into the lineup going forward.
Boll (back) will start training camp off the injury list. This injury was described as a "bad back" and wasn't expected to continue into the season. Boll averaged just 5:49 of ice time in 51 games last season, and the veteran enforcer spent 87 minutes in the box.
