Bollig has decided to retire from hockey, Chris Kuc of The Athletic reports.
Bollig didn't follow the typical path to the NHL, working his way slowly up the ranks over time. He played parts or all of five seasons at the top level, most notably playing the full season for the club in 2013-14. That season, the enforcer recorded 14 points in addition to his 203 hits and 92 penalty minutes. He finishes his career with 23 points and 392 penalty minutes after spending the final year of his career playing for AHL San Jose and AHL Milwaukee in 2017-18.
Bolling and Troy Grosenick were traded by the Sharks for Nashville's sixth-round pick in the 2018 draft.
The 31-year-old winger has 10 points in 45 AHL games this season. Bollig will likely get stashed away in AHL Milwaukee, so this trade shouldn't have any real fantasy impact.
Bollig was waived by San Jose on Monday, Rick Ralph of TSN 1290 Winnipeg reports.
A scrappy winger, Bollig scored on his only shot through three games during the preseason, but he also tacked on 14 PIM. The Sharks evidently know that he's little more than an enforcer type.
Bollig signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Sharks on Tuesday.
Now 30 years old, Bollig spent last season with AHL Stockton, where he accrued 11 goals and 11 assists over 60 games. However, the way things are shaping up in San Jose, Bollig seems to be a candidate for reasonable time at left wing during the season ahead, as he's behind only Jannik Hansen and Melker Karlsson, barring any future acquisitions by the Sharks.
Bollig was waived by the Flames on Monday, Chris Johnston of Sportsnet reports.
If unclaimed, Bollig will be reassigned to the minors where he last played during the 2012-13 campaign while with the Rockford IceHogs. With Calgary this past season, the 29-year-old managed a meager four points in 54 contests along with 103 PIM. Even if he gets picked up by another team, the winger offers little in terms of fantasy value and should probably be left off owners' lineups.
Bollig chipped in an assist in Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Ducks.
The gritty winger has been in and out of the lineup this season, with just a goal and two assists in 30 games. He does have 60 PIM to his name, but he'll need to carve out a consistent spot in the lineup to provide much fantasy value.
Bollig was a healthy scratch in Saturday's 5-2 victory over the Penguins.
Bollig has had a couple healthy scratches over the last five games, as the Flames are trying to find the lineup that can get them back the success they had last season. Coaches may be a little unhappy with his 35 penalty minutes in 12 games, and it appears he may occasionally be the odd man out in Calgary.

Bollig lit the lamp in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime victory over the Ducks in Game 3.Bollig doesn't put the puck in the net all that often, but he has come up with big goals in both pivotal Game 3s in the first two rounds of the playoffs. He also has three 10-plus penalty minute games in these playoffs, more of what is his specialty.
Bollig scored the first goal in Sunday's Game 3 win over the Canucks.Bollig hadn't found twine since Feb. 2 until his wrist shot got past Canucks goalie Eddie Lack to kick off the night's scoring.

Bollig (illness) is in line to play Thursday against the Kings, Derek Willis of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.The illness kept Bollig unavailable for Monday's game, but he looks to be fully healthy now after returning to practice Wednesday.

Bollig (illness) was on the ice with his teammates Wednesday, Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 reports.Bollig, who missed Monday's game against the Sharks, thus has a chance to suit up Thursday against the Kings, though with just three points in 45 games to date, his fantasy value is limited to formats where his PIM (47) help.
Bollig (illness) is traveling to join the team but won't play Monday against the Sharks, Roger Millions of Sportsnet Calgary reports.The Flames will be without Bollig's services for a second straight game Monday due to the illness. However, it appears the worst of it is behind him, as he will join the team in San Jose. While he won't return against the Sharks, it seems likely he'll be back for Thursday's game against the Kings.
Bollig is dealing with an illness, Kristen Odland of the Calgary Herald reports.Bollig's status for the game is unclear at this point, but his status should be made known prior to the contest if he ends up missing.

Bollig is expected to be a healthy scratch for Thursday's game against the Coyotes, the Calgary Herald reports.The Flames are looking to jumpstart Bollig, who has only two points and a minus-2 in 17 games.
