Senyshyn was placed on waivers by the Bruins on Monday, Joe Haggerty of Boston Hockey Now reports.
Assuming he goes unclaimed on waivers, Senyshyn is a candidate to become a member of the Bruins taxi squad. The 2015 first-rounder has yet to carve out a steady role with the team to date, but Senyshyn does have the wheels to compete at the NHL level. However, in three seasons as a pro, he's yet to recapture the scoring touch he displayed as a junior, so bottom-six forward work seems likely if he gets any opportunities with the big club this season.
Senyshyn inked a one-year, two-way contract extension with the Bruins on Wednesday.
Senyshyn has struggled to take the next step in his development since being selected with the 15th overall pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. The 23-year-old winger was with AHL Providence for most of the 2019-20 campaign, only mustering 16 points in 42 games. He did also make four appearances with the big club last season, notching a pair of helpers over that span. He'll likely once again spend most of his time in the minors in 2020-21.
Boston activated Senyshyn (lower body) off injured reserve and assigned him to AHL Providence on Wednesday.
Senyshyn has been sidelined for over two months due to a lower-body injury, so it'll likely take him a while to knock off the rust in the minors. However, once he's up to speed, the 22-year-old winger will top the list of potential call-ups for the Bruins if and when they're in need of reinforcements up front. The 2015 first-round pick has totaled three points in six appearances with the big club over the past two campaigns.
Senyshyn (lower body) -- who's been sidelined since Nov. 12 -- is in line to skate Tuesday, NESN's Lauren Campbell reports.
That's a step in the right direction for the speedy forward, but a timetable for Senyshyn's return to game action has yet to be established. Once he's cleared to play, Senyshyn figures to head back to the AHL, unless the big club happens to be shorthanded up front at that time. In four games with Boston this season, the 2015 first-rounder has logged two helpers.
Senyshyn will be re-evaluated in four weeks due to his lower-body injury, the team announced Thursday.
Senyshyn logged four games for the Bruins prior to getting hurt in which he notched two assists, one shot and two hits while averaging 8:26 of ice time. With a bevy of injured forwards, recent call-up Trent Frederic could immediately slot into the lineup versus Toronto on Friday. Senyshyn will be placed on injured reserve for the duration of his absence.
Senyshyn (lower body) will not return to Tuesday's game versus the Panthers.
It's unclear at this time how severe Senyshyn's injury is. He skated only 4:46 in the contest before suffering the injury. The 22-year-old's status should be updated prior to the Bruins' next game Friday versus the Maple Leafs.
The Bruins recalled Senyshyn from AHL Providence on Thursday.
Senyshyn was dropped to the minors Wednesday, but that was clearly just a paper transaction made to manipulate the salary cap. He'll likely slot into a bottom-six role Friday against Detroit.
The Bruins assigned Senyshyn to AHL Providence on Wednesday.
Senyshyn joins Cameron Hughes on the journey back to the minors, but it may simply be a cap move considering the team doesn't play again until Friday versus the Red Wings. The 22-year-old logged 10:49 of ice time and a plus-1 rating in Tuesday's loss to the Canadiens.
The Bruins recalled Senyshyn from AHL Providence on Tuesday.
Boston placed Par Lindholm (upper body) on injured reserve in a corresponding move, so Senyshyn will round out the team's depth up front for the foreseeable future. The 22-year-old winger has picked up three points in 12 minor-league appearances this season.
Senyshyn has been sent to AHL Providence.
Heading into the last year of his entry-level deal, this is a pivotal season for the 2015 first-rounder. Senyshyn possesses a nice combo of size (6-foot-1, 192 pounds) and blazing speed, but to date the 22-year-old hasn't logged consistent offensive production as a pro after displaying goal-scoring potential as a junior. A strong start with Providence, however, could lead to an in-season call-up for the winger.
Coach Bruce Cassidy is looking for Senyshyn to step up in his third full season as a pro, Joe Haggerty of NBC Sports Boston reports.
The same applies to fellow prospects Anders Bjork and Jakub Zboril. "Those guys are in the last year of their entry deals. It is important. You're playing for your spot here in Boston, but also for your livelihood. You want to earn that next contract, and for some guys it takes a little bit longer," Cassidy noted. A pair of modestly productive AHL seasons have Senyshyn at a career crossroads. The 2015 first-rounder has a nice combo size (6-foot-1, 192 pounds) and game-breaking speed, but so far as a pro he hasn't displayed the consistent scoring touch he did in junior hockey. As it stands, there's not a lot of current buzz to the effect of Senyshyn starting the 2019-20 campaign with the big club. Assuming he starts the season with AHL Providence, however, a hot start in the minors could earn the winger an in-season call-up.
The Bruins assigned Senyshyn to AHL Providence on Sunday, Mark Divver of The Providence Journal reports.
Senyshyn played in two games during this stint with the big club, and he scored in his NHL debut. The 2015 first-round pick will head back to the minors and look to make the AHL playoffs, although he may be recalled for depth on the Bruins' playoff run.
Senyshyn capped his NHL debut with an empty-net goal in Thursday's 3-0 win over Minnesota.
Senyshyn got a look as the Bruins were resting some regulars with the playoffs around the corner, and he made the most of the opportunity. Expect to see more of the 15th-overall selection from the 2015 draft in the future, but Senyshyn's present-day value remains minimal.
Senyshyn will be in the Bruins' lineup Thursday against the Wild.
Senyshyn, who was taken 15th overall in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, isn't likely to be part of the Bruins' postseason run, but he'll get his first taste of NHL action Thursday, with the team in line to strategically rest some regulars over the next couple of games. He recorded a modest 14 goals and 24 points in 62 games with AHL Providence this season, but the organization's focus was on the 22-year-old developing his all-around game. Blazing speed and good scoring instincts are Senyshyn's calling cards -- attributes that could land him a spot with the big club next season.
The Bruins have recalled Senyshyn from AHL Providence on an emergency basis.
In 62 AHL games this season, Senyshyn has recorded 14 goals and 24 points, numbers that are a bit disappointing considering the 22-year-old was taken 15th overall in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. That said, Senyshyn's speed and scoring instincts give him some upside and it looks like he'll soon get his first taste of NHL action with the B's long having secured home ice in Round 1 of the playoffs against Toronto.
Senyshyn leads AHL Providence with nine goals through 25 games to date.
Senyshyn, who has added three helpers in that span, has vaulted to the top of his team's goal-scoring list by having tallied four times over his last three outings. The 15th overall pick in the 2015 NHL Entry draft carries a minus-9 rating, but his recent uptick in production is encouraging and could lead to a call-up this season if he's able to further round out his two-way game. Speed and scoring potential are Senyshyn's calling cards and both of those are elements the Bruins could use up front.
Senyshyn was reassigned to AHL Providence on Tuesday, Steve Conroy of the Boston Herald reports.
The fleet-footed winger scored two goals on 12 shots to complement a plus-2 rating over three preseason games. Senyshyn is said to be close to seizing a role in the NHL, though it appears his next opportunity at the top level won't come until the Bruins are inevitably hit with more injuries up front.
Senyshyn potted two goals on seven shots in Tuesday's 5-2 preseason win over Washington.
He posted only 26 points at AHL Providence last season, but Senyshyn flashed the offensive skills that prompted Boston to select him 15th overall back in the 2015 draft here. While he's still fighting an uphill battle to make the big club this year, this was certainly a step in the right direction.
Senyshyn logged 12 goals and 26 points in 66 games for AHL Providence in his first season as a pro.
The 2015 first-rounder's numbers weren't anything special this past season, but the 21-year-old did show glimpses of his offensive potential and retains a high ceiling as a prospect thanks to his blazing wheels and listed 6-foot-3, 205-pound frame. The Bruins noticeably passed on both Mathew Barzal and Kyle Connor in order to select Senyshyn 15th overall in 2015, which continues to irk some Boston fans, but the pick no longer looks like the sort of reach it was portrayed as at the time. Based on his level of production in his first pro campaign, Senyshyn should start next season at the AHL level. That said, we'd expect the speedster to take his game to the next level in 2018-19, much as he did in his second full slate in the OHL with Sault Ste. Marie, when he potted 45 goals in 66 contests.
Senyshyn has scored a goal in each of his last three games while playing for AHL Providence.
The 2015 first-round pick now has six goals and 15 points through 26 games this campaign, his first full season as a pro. As someone who recorded a "winning season" -- finishing with more goals than assists -- in each of his last three years in major junior, Senyshyn hasn't been as much of a shoot-first player for the Baby B's. Already with a wealth of young, talented forwards on its roster, Boston will likely leave Senyshyn in the minors for the entirety of 2017-18 to further his development.
