Clearly, NHL teams are strict this season, and they do not hesitate to put players on waivers, even promising young ones.

Liam Foudy was notably seen last week (who was claimed), and now the Bruins have just made a young defenseman available.

Ian Mitchell placed on waivers by the Bruins

It has indeed just been announced!


Mitchell, 24 years old, is a right-handed defenseman drafted in the 2nd round in 2017 by the Chicago Blackhawks.

His arrival in the NHL was highly anticipated, as he completely dominated the NCAA.

After scoring 17 points in the NHL and 6 points in 5 games in the AHL last year, Mitchell is now available for free!

Interestingly, he is the main piece acquired by the Boston Bruins in the Taylor Hall trade, the former 1st overall pick. Wow.

Trade recap.

To the Bruins: Ian Mitchell and Alec Regula

To the Hawks: Taylor Hall and Nick Foligno

He will probably be claimed! Stay tuned!

Will Kent Hughes and Jeff Gorton give him a chance while waiting for David Savard's return?
