Bournival will hang up his skates and end his professional career.
Bournival played in just five games last season between the AHL and NHL as a result of an undisclosed injury. The center saw action in 113 NHL games for Montreal and Tampa Bay, in which he tallied 12 goals, 10 assists and 1,231 PIM. The 27-year-old played over 200 games in the AHL as well, but it appears injuries have brought his career to an early conclusion.
Bournival (undisclosed) -- who was injured during training camp and started the year on non-roster, injured reserve -- was placed on waivers Thursday for the purpose of reassignment, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Now healthy, Bournival will link up with AHL Syracuse -- assuming he clears waivers -- where he racked up 34 points in 57 outings last season. The 26-year-old has only appeared in 24 games for the Lightning since joining the organization prior to the 2016-17 campaign and will likely spend the bulk of his time in the minors this year as well.
Bournival (undisclosed) was reassigned to AHL Syracuse on Sunday, TSN reports.
While he may not be on the 23-man roster for Opening Night, Bournival should headline the short list of potential call-ups throughout the season. Since joining the Lightning, the center has appeared in just 24 games, but should get an extended look sooner or later.
Bournival was sporting a non-contact jersey at Friday's training camp session, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.
Bournival may have the inside track to a spot on the 23-man roster, but an extended absence could put his position with the team in jeopardy. Even if he does make the roster out of camp, the center is unlikely to see regular minutes and figures to spend plenty of time in the press box.
Bournival signed a one-year, two-way contract extension with the Lightning on Thursday.
Bournival spent the majority of the season at AHL Syracuse, racking up 34 points -- 15 goals and 19 assists -- in 57 games with the Crunch. He made a couple of brief appearances with the Lightning in 2017-18 and will likely resume the role of a borderline forward for the organization next season.
Bournival was demoted to AHL Syracuse on Thursday.
Bournival has played in just five NHL games this season, in which he averaged a mere 9:21 of ice time. Unsurprisingly, the club opted to send him back to the Crunch in order to get him some additional minutes. In a swap of players, the Lightning called up Anthony Cirelli to fill out their lineup.
Bournival was recalled from AHL Syracuse on Tuesday.
Bournival has drawn into four games for the Lightning this season, but he has yet to tally a point for the Bolts in 2017-18 while averaging less than 10 minutes of ice time per game. He should provide the team with some depth up front with a back-to-back set on tap, but could remain in the press box if both Tyler Johnson (undisclosed) and Nikita Kucherov (upper body) are able to play when the team next suits up, which will be Wednesday against the Sabres.
Bournival was reassigned to AHL Syracuse on Tuesday.
Bournival suited up for four of eight games in this NHL stint, accruing seven shots on goal and eight hits while averaging 9:21 of ice time. The 25-year-old fits well in minors, though, racking up 13 goals, 14 assists and 40 PIM in 40 AHL games this season. Barring further injuries to the Lightning's forwards, expect Bournival to stay in Syracuse.
Bournival was recalled from AHL Syracuse on Sunday.
Bournival figures to continue flip-flopping between the NHL and AHL, as that's precisely what he's done since originally latching on with the Canadiens in 2012-13. He has yet to make his season debut at the highest level this season, though, and Matthew Peca -- who was also called up from Syracuse on Sunday -- should be the favorite to hold down a fourth-line spot while Ondrej Palat sits out with an undisclosed ailment.
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.
Bournival was assigned to AHL Syracuse on Sunday.
The winger scored a goal in Thursday's game, tallying his third point of the year. With just one game left in the season, Bournival's NHL campaign is wrapped up.
Tampa Bay recalled Bournival from AHL Syracuse on Wednesday.
The Lightning are dealing with a ton of injuries up front, so Bournival will provide the team with some much-needed depth at forward ahead of Thursday's meeting with the Maple Leafs. The 24-year-old pivot has tallied two points in 17 games with the big club this season, and he'll likely draw into a bottom-six role if he cracks the lineup against Toronto.
Bournival was reassigned to AHL Syracuse on Wednesday.
The depth pivot shed his non-contact sweater earlier this week and skated in practice, so his move back to the minors could be a sign that he's ready for a conditioning stint. Either way, Bournival has just two points in 17 games with a minus-4 rating this season, rendering him worthless in the majority of fantasy landscapes.
Bournival (upper body) skated in a regular practice jersey Sunday and Monday and is likely to return by the weekend, NHL.com reports.
While this almost certainly rules Bournival out for Tuesday night's game against the Kings, the assessment does put him on track to return either Friday in Minnesota or Saturday in Winnipeg. Gabriel Dumont and J.T. Brown will likely continue to see looks during Bournival's absence.
Bournival (upper body) took part in Thursday's optional morning skate wearing a red no-contact jersey, Erik Erlendsson of LightningInsider.com reports.
Although he hasn't officially been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Senators, the fact that Bournival didn't participate in contact drills suggests he's not ready to return. With just two points in 17 contests this season, the former Canadien -- who has averaged 10:03 of ice time with the Bolts -- hasn't made much of an impact when in the lineup, anyway, so it shouldn't ruffle the feathers of many fantasy owners if he misses a third straight game.
Bournival will not play against the Bruins on Tuesday as he continues to recover from an upper-body injury, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Despite being placed on waivers, Bournival has evidently not been cleared to return from the ailment that kept him out of the Lightning's in-state rivalry game versus the Panthers on Thursday. By placing him on the wire, the organization is now free to ship the center down to AHL Syracuse once he is given the all clear. Considering he has just one point in his last 13 contests, it certainly wouldn't be a surprise to see Bournival packing his bags for the trip north.
