Jakub Zboril has been reassigned to the Saint John Sea Dogs.
The Boston Bruins announced Sunday afternoon that the Sea Dogs defenceman had been sent back to junior.
Zboril, a first-round pick of the Bruins in the 2015 NHL Draft, will give the Sea Dogs some additional defensive help. The team has been without Zboril, Luke Green and Thomas Chabot this season due to NHL camps. Now, only Chabot remains away.
Last season, Zboril had six goals and 14 assists in 50 regular season games. He added two goals and eight assists in 17 playoff games.
In his QMJHL career, the 19-year-old has 19 goals and 34 assists in 94 regular season games.
The Bruins also announced on Sunday that former Sea Dogs defenceman Alex Grant has “been placed on waivers for the purpose of reassignment.”
Meanwhile, Chabot will play for the Ottawa Senators on Monday night in their pre-season game against the Winnipeg Jets.
