Dave Bolland (lower body) might not be able to play in the NHL again.
Bolland will probably open the season on the long-term injured reserve list after failing his physical. "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." He's completed two seasons of his five-year, $27.5 million deal.

Dave Bolland (lower body) didn't pass his physical.

Coyotes GM John Chayka had already said that he didn't expect Bolland to be ready to play for the "foreseeable future" so this latest development doesn't come as a surprise. He'll open the season on the long-term injured reserve list.

According to Coyotes GM John Chayka, Dave Bolland won't be ready to play for the "foreseeable future".

That's a bonus for the Coyotes, as they'll be able to place him on long-term injured reserve. While he's on IR, Bolland's cap hit won't be charged to the Coyotes salary cap. Bolland played in just 25 games last year because of a lower-body injury.

The Florida Panthers have traded Dave Bolland and Lawson Crouse to the Arizona Coyotes for a conditional 2nd round pick in 2018 and a third round pick in 2017.

This was an unexpected blockbuster deal. Bolland hasn't lived up to the massive contract he signed in the summer of 2014. The 30-year-old played in just 25 games in 2015-16, as he dealt with a lingering lower-body injury. Bolland has three years remaining on his contract at a cap hit of $5.5 million. To sweeten the deal, Florida had to include top prospect Lawson Crouse. The 19-year-old was the 11th overall pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. The Panthers have essentially sacrificed a good prospect for some salary cap flexibility.

Florida and Arizona are working on a deal that would send Dave Bolland to the Coyotes.

The report comes from Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman. Trading Bolland won't be easy because of his expensive contract and limited contributions over the last few seasons. To shed Bolland's contract, the Panthers are apparently going to include top prospect Lawson Crouse, who was the 11th overall pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. Bolland has three years remaining on his contract at an AAV of $5.5 million. A lower-body injury limited him to 25 games last season.

Although Dave Bolland is signed through 2018-19, he might have played in his last game with Florida.

The question is if Bolland, who was dealing with a lower-body injury, will be deemed healthy and thus eligible to be bought out. He last played on Dec. 12 and was limited to five points in 25 games. He comes with a $5.5 million cap hit too, so trading him rather than buying him out would be a difficult task.

Florida is expected to cut ties with Dave Bolland this off-season.

He is reportedly in Toronto meeting with specialists. If he gets a clean bill of health then Florida will buy out the rest of his contract. Bolland appeared in 25 games with the Panthers in 2015-16 because of lingering issues.

the Florida Panthers placed Dave Bollan on IR ahead of their match with Minnesota on Sunday.

Ten days ago, Panthers coach Gerard Gallant noted that Bolland hadn't "skated in six weeks." So we'd be surprised to ever seen him back in Florida's lineup again this season. Which, if placed on LTIR can help alleviate a pro-rated $5.5M from the cap ahead of Monday's deadline.

At this point, it would be surprising to see Dave Bolland (lower body) even return this season.

"He hasn’t skated in six weeks," Panthers coach Gerard Gallant said. "The longer it goes the worse it gets. He's doing rebab, trying to get better. We don't know when it's going to be but we're hoping he will be a part of it." The Miami Herald reports that the Panthers are considering a buyout, but if he's injured that might not be an option. As a side note, we mentioned back in January that Bolland wasn't on the injured reserve list for whatever reason and that's still the case according to the Panthers' website.

Dave Bolland (lower body) still isn't on the injured reserve list.

We mention that because you might reasonably assume otherwise given that he hasn't skated in over a month. For whatever reason though, Florida has opted to keep him on the active roster.

Dave Bolland hasn't played or practiced in more than a month, as he continues to deal with lingering injuries.

One of those ailments is believed to be an ankle problem that goes back to the severed tendon he suffered as a member of the Maple Leafs in 2013. "He can't skate right now, so we're just trying to get him healthy so he can help us in a playoff run," GM Dale Tallon said. "We just want to get him healthy, get him right."
Fri, Jan 22, 2016 08:16:00 AM

Coach Gerard Gallant doesn't expect to have Dave Bolland (lower body) back on the ice until after the All-Star break.

"We want him to help us in the playoff run," GM Dale Tallon said Friday. "It's lingering, minor stuff. It's been enough to take him off his game. We're going to make sure he's 100 percent. We won't bring him back at 80." Bolland won't travel with the team on their road trip.

Dave Bolland suffered a lower-body injury during his AHL conditioning stint.

Bolland has unfortunately had pretty bad luck when it comes to injuries for years now. He has a goal and five points in 25 contests in 2015-16.

Dave Bolland has been recalled by the Florida Panthers.

Bolland spent a week in the minors for conditioning purposes. Despite the fact that he's rejoined the team, he will not participate in Tuesday's game.
Mon, Dec 21, 2015 03:37:00 PM

Dave Bolland has reportedly been loaned to Florida's AHL affiliate for conditioning.

He doesn't have a point in his last 10 games. Bolland has one goal and five points in 25 matches this season.
