Bruins defenseman lands on waivers for 2nd time this season

He's been waived once already.



For the second time this season, the Boston Bruins are making an effort to move on from a member of their team.

Defenseman Ian Mitchell has been waived yet again, after having been so in October with no claims being made for his playing rights.

Mitchell spent last season playing with the Chicago Blackhawks, scoring one goal with seven assists in 35 games played. This summer, he was part of the package acquired by the Bruins along with Alec Regula in exchange for Taylor Hall and Nick Foligno.

In the 13 games that he's played in this season for Boston, he's registered two assists while averaging 15:18 of ice time. He's also skated in four games with the American Hockey League affiliate Providence Bruins, registering a single assist. 

Originally selected in the 2nd round of the 2017 NHL Entry Draft by the Chicago Blackhawks, he's appeared in a total of 95 NHL games, scoring four goals with 14 assists.
