Bruins' Chris Wagner: Lands on waiver wire
Wagner was placed on waivers by Boston on Saturday, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports.
Wagner hasn't played in the minors since 2016-17 when he was still with Anaheim but appears headed for AHL Providence if he clears. Without Wagner in the lineup, Karson Kuhlman and Trent Frederic should see an uptick in ice time, though they figure to remain in bottom-six roles. For his part, Wagner should still see opportunities to play in the NHL this year whenever an injury pops up among the forward group.... See More ... See Less

Wagner scored his first goal of the season in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Penguins.
It was the first point in seven games to date for Wagner, who remains a mainstay on the Bruins' fourth line, centered by Sean Kuraly.
