Bolland (back, ankle) has likely played his final game, Sportsnet reports. "He's working towards trying to (play), but again injuries are what they are. He's been trying to comeback from that injury for the last nine months and he hasn't gotten to the stage where he can do that to be cleared," said agent Anton Thun. "His goal is to try to continue to play, but at some point in time, it may just be not happening. He may never play again."
Bolland, a two-time Stanley Cup champion, was dealt to Arizona in late August for a pair of future draft picks. The veteran pivot has five years left on his contract at an average annual value of $5.5 million, but the 'Yotes were willing to absorb that bad contract to reach the cap floor. Also, with Bolland expected to go on long-term injured reserve after failing a physical before training camp, it will ultimately help the club with cap savings if its total payroll starts to exceed the upper limit of $73 million.
Bolland (lower body) failed his training camp physical and will be placed on long-term injured reserve, Craig Morgan of AZ Sports reports.
Bolland was not expected to be ready to go for the start of the season and his contract with shipped to the Coyotes to ensure they would reach the salary cap floor. It's possible the 30-year-old will be on LTIR until his contract runs out following the 2018-19 season. Fantasy owners will want to avoid the center for now until a more definitive answer comes out surrounding his future.
Bolland (lower body) was traded to the Coyotes from the Panthers along with Lawson Crouse in exchange for a 2017 third round pick and a 2018 second round pick Thursday, Chris Johnston of Sportsnet reports.
With Bolland's future still up in the air considering he played in just 25 games last campaign, this is essentially a salary dump by the Panthers who will save $5.5 million per year over the next three years. Assuming he is healthy enough to return, fantasy owners may want to avoid the center as he has seen action in less than 55 contests in each of the previous four seasons.
Bolland (lower body) was officially placed on injured reserve by the Panthers on Sunday.
Having not played since before Christmas, it apparently takes the addition of multiple players for the Panthers to finally give in and move the veteran to injured reserve. He's eligible to return when healthy, but Bolland's timetable remains indefinite at this point.
Bolland (lower body) will sit through the All-Star break, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.
With the All-Star break scheduled Jan. 30-31, the news essentially rules him out through the end of the month. His next chance to return would then come Feb. 2 against the Capitals, but more on his situation should come to light as he progresses in his recovery.
Bolland (lower body) won't play Tuesday against the Panthers, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
The Panthers have won six-consecutive games during Bolland's most-recent absence, so it's hardly surprising that the 29-year-old forward will serve as a scratch for Tuesday's tilt. His next chance to return to Florida's lineup will come Saturday against the Rangers, but it's hard to imagine a scenario where the Panthers opt to shake up their lines given their recent success.
Bollan (illness) has been recalled from his conditioning stint, but won't play Tuesday against the Senators, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Bolland was placed on injured reserve due to a bug that had been going around the locker room, but it appears the issue is nearly behind him. He will rest through the break, but it wouldn't be surprising if he rejoins the lineup Sunday against the Blue Jackets.
Bolland (illness) has been sent to AHL Portland on a conditioning assignment, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Bolland wasn't available for practice Monday due to an illness, so the conditioning stint will afford him a chance to get back into playing shape. Bolland is really struggling this season, as he only has five points in 25 games and that comes with a shooting percentage of 3.8, which is by far the worst mark for the skater in his ninth year. Making matters worse, Bolland is average 14:06 of ice time, more than two minutes less than he had last year (16:21).
Bolland was held out of practice Monday with an illness, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
There appears to be a bug going around in the lockerroom, as Bolland was one of four Panthers held out of practice with an illness. His status for Tuesday's tilt against the Islanders remains up in the air as a result.
Bolland appears destined to be scratched from Friday night's contest against the Islanders, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.

Bolland (hand) will return to the lineup Tuesday against the Flames, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Bolland missed the last two contests because of the injury, but he'll once again take the ice for Tuesday's contest.

Bolland (hand) will not play in Saturday's game against the Kings, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Bolland will now miss back-to-back games with a hand injury he suffered in Wednesday's tilt against the Ducks. He was able to practice Friday, and was a true game-time decision Saturday, so it seems as though Bolland is likely on the brink of returning to action. His next chance to draw back into the Panthers' lineup will come Tuesday against Calgary.
Bolland (hand) will be a game-time decision for Saturday's matchup with the Kings, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Bolland suffered the injury when he was struck by a puck on his right hand in Wednesday's game against the Ducks, and was held out of Thursday's tilt against San Jose as a result. The ding doesn't seem to be overly serious, however, as Bolland returned to practice Friday, and could draw back into the Panthers' lineup Saturday against L.A. His availability for Saturday afternoon's game should be confirmed prior to puck drop.
Bolland is listed as day-to-day with an upper-body injury, Dhiren Mahiban of The Canadian Press reports.

Bolland tallied an assist in Saturday's defeat to the Capitals.
Bolland has had trouble both scoring points and staying on the ice, but is in the midst of scoring a goal and three assists in his last five games.

Bolland tallied an assist on Jimmy Hayes' first period goal in their 2-1 win over the Bruins on Saturday.Bolland has struggled to stay healthy this season, but has still put up 19 points (4-15-19) in 43 games. He's had a productive March since he returned on Mar. 12, putting up three points in six games while also picking up six penalty minutes. He hasn't scored more than 20 points since the 2011-12 season in Chicago, and thus has limited fantasy value.
Bolland notched an empty-net goal in Saturday's shutout win over the Hurricanes.Bolland has produced a point in both of his first two games back from an upper-body injury. He's seen less than 14 minutes of ice time on both occasions to go along with minimal power-play action, making it unlikely that he'll be able to sustain the scoring run much longer.
Bolland (upper body/illness) was activated from injured reserve Thursday.Bolland has been out since Feb. 21, primarily due to the upper-body injury before a bout with the stomach flu set in last week. The 28-year-old has been barely able to stay on the ice this season and hasn't been effective when healthy, contributing only three goals and 16 points over 37 games. Don't expect the former Stanley Cup hero to take on a featured scoring role with the Panthers.
Bolland (illness) filled in on the second line in practice Wednesday, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.Bolland had suffered an upper body injury prior to his illness, so seeing him practice consecutive days bodes well for his chances to play Thursday against the Jets.

He hasn't played since Feb. 21, so you may want to wait and see how he performs once he gets back on the ice.
