Daniel Paille has been released by AHL Rockford.

Rockford is affiliated with the Chicago Blackhawks. Paille has a goal and four points in 31 AHL contests this season. The expectation is that the New York Rangers will now ink Paille to a two-way deal, but that hasn't been made official yet.

Daniel Paille has signed a tryout with the AHL's Rockford IceHogs.

He was released from Chicago's training camp on Monday, where he was also on a PTO. Paille looks like he could make the Blackhawks' organization in a minor-league role if he earns a contract.

Daniel Paille, who was attending training camp on a professional tryout, has been cut by Chicago.

Daniel Paille has agreed to a professional tryout with the Chicago Blackhawks.

TSN's Darren Dreger reported the news Sunday night. Paille could be placed on the fourth line if he makes the team in a checking role. He had six goals and 13 points in 71 games with the Boston Bruins last season.

Daniel Paille remains an unrestricted free agent without a contract and only tryout offers, and he blames that in part because he was a healthy scratch with the Boston Bruins toward the end of the 2014-15 season.

"The only thing you can control is your play, and outside of that there’s nothing that can be done," Paille told "Definitely a big portion of me not being signed is not being able to play in those last 10 games [of the regular season] but I did everything in my power to get back into the lineup regardless of what I did."

Daniel Paille has been informed by the Bruins that he won't be offered a new contract.

That means Paille will become an unrestricted free agent in July. He was a healthy scratch for the last nine games of the season and he generated a mere 13 points in 71 matches. Paille has spent the past six years with Boston, but he'll be looking for a new squad this summer.

Daniel Paille has been a healthy scratch for the past eight games.

Gregory Campbell joined him in the press box on Thursday, as Max Talbot got back into the lineup. Paille has six goals and 13 points in 71 games this season. He hasn't been in the lineup since Mar. 22.

Daniel Paille will be scratched for his fourth straight game when his Bruins take on the Panthers on Tuesday night.

Paille probably won't make it on to too many fantasy rosters, but his 13 points, 14 blocks, and 77 hits through 71 games this season is pretty good for a veteran fourth-line winger.

Daniel Paille was scratched from Sunday's tilt with the Carolina Hurricanes.

Paille has had a nice season for himself with 13 points, 14 blocks, and 77 hits through 71 games this season. That may not quite be fantasy-worthy, but it's pretty good in real life for the veteran fourth line winger.

Daniel Paille was hit in the mouth by a puck on a pass by linemate Patrice Bergeron on Saturday.

"I tried to catch it. I don't know if I misread it or I got a late shove, but whatever it was, I missed it and it hit me right in the mouth," Paille said. "The result, basically, was that a few of my teeth were all over the place. I was sitting on the bench and something was blocking me from closing my mouth. My tooth was pushed up pretty good and it was bleeding excessively. We had to push (all the teeth) back in. (The trainers) used their hands." He went to the dressing room for stitches and X-rays. Paille was OK to play on Sunday and he scored his sixth goal of the season in a 5-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Forward Daniel Paille scored two goals Sunday in the Boston Bruins' 5-3 victory over the visiting Detroit Red Wings.

Paille's goals, one of which came when the Bruins were shorthanded, were his fourth and fifth of the season. He hadn't scored more than one goal in a game since April, 2011. Sunday, his goals were the only two scored in the second period and gave the Bruins a 4-1 lead going into the third. Brad Marchand also scored a shorthanded goal for Boston. Marchand, who netted the last two goals of the Bruins' dramatic, 4-3 comeback win over the Philadelphia Flyers Saturday, opened the scoring Sunday with his 22nd goal at 4:15 of the first period. David Pastrnak and Loui Eriksson also produced goals -- both on Boston power plays. Pastrnak's goal was his eighth of the season Eriksson's was his 16th.

Daniel Paille was the only member of the Bruins to find the back of the net in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to the Canucks.

Paille's goal was just his second in 58 games so it stands to reason that he shouldn't be owned in any fantasy formats. He was also a healthy scratch for Boston's previous two games. Loui Eriksson and Carl Soderberg contributed assists in the losing effort.
