Zach Hamill has been waived by the Boston Bruins.

That's certainly interesting. Although it's true that Hamill has had difficulties getting playing time with with Bruins this season, it's surprising that they have decided to make the 2007 eighth overall draft pick available to the rest of the NHL. Although Hamill hasn't done much to prove himself at the NHL level, we wouldn't be surprised if a struggling team decides to take a chance on him for the low price of a waiver wire claim.

Of course, the B's could still try to sneak him through waivers, but we doubt they would take the chance. Hamill has played well in limited opportunities but he will not be fantasy relevant this season.

Zach Hamill began Monday's game on the fourth line, but he ended up playing alongside David Krejci and Nathan Horton.

Hamill will concede the top line spot to Milan Lucic, who will return from a one-game suspension, but Hamill can be proud of his recent performance. "He’s come up here every time he’s come up and done a really good job," Bruins said coach Claude Julien. "I see a guy competing a lot harder and more confident than I have ever seen." Hamill has expressed a willingness to play in whatever role the team needs him in. He's also started to kill penalties after initially requesting the opportunity in AHL Providence. He's only played in six games with the Bruins this season, but he's making it hard for them to send him back down.
