David Warsofsky has signed with the Penguins for one year and $600,000.
The former Bruins' rearguard has shown some promise with Providence of the AHL over the past few seasons but has yet to make his mark in the NHL. In four games with Boston last season Warsofsky registered one point. If he does make the Penguins roster out of training camp this season, he will slot in as a 5th or 6th rearguard. He is therefore, not draft worthy. Jul 1 - 2:15 PM

David Warsofsky wasn't able to practice on Friday because of an undisclosed injury.

David Warsofsky may get a chance to see power-play time with Boston.

He was called up, along with Joe Morrow, when Torey Krug got injured. Warsofsky is looking forward to making an impact when he gets a chance to play. "For me it's an opportunity," he said. "That's how I'm looking at it, just take advantage of it."

David Warsofsky will be assigned to the minors.

He has cleared waivers and will start the season with AHL Providence. Boston has their defense corps settled, so Warsofsky was an odd man out despite his offensive potential.

The Boston Bruins also waived David Warsofsky and Craig Cunningham on Saturday.

Neither was expected to make a fantasy impact but Warsofsky in particular seems to be a victim of a numbers game in Boston.

With Torey Krug a no-show at Bruins' training camp, David Warsofsky will get a chance to shine and showcase his talents.

In fact, Warsofsky, a very similar player to Krug, is getting the opportunity to play alongside Krug's defensive partner Kevan Miller. Should Warsofsky show well in training camp he could be traded to a team where he would start the season in the NHL and have a more prominent role than he currently enjoys in the Boston organization. He is certainly considered NHL ready but has no where to play given the Bruins' well stocked blueline. Stay tuned.

Boston defenseman David Warsofsky is likely ready for the NHL, but the Bruins' glut of rearguards may make it difficult for him to start the year with the club.

The small, shifty defenseman possesses a skill set similar to that of Torey Krug and could be an offensive asset to the team, but there are already eight other Boston blueliners slated for NHL roles. "I think David’s ready to play in the NHL," said Providence coach Bruce Cassidy. "Could he beat out eight guys in Boston? I don’t know. That’s a pretty good lineup, right? So a good problem for Boston to have, tough for David." It may take a series of transactions or injuries to make room for him, but Warsofsky stands to be a useful player in fantasy leagues at some point soon.

David Warsofsky thinks the 2014-15 campaign will be an important one in his career.

At the age of 24, Warsofsky has played in six NHL games with Boston and he's still fighting for a regular roster spot. That will be a difficult thing for Warsofsky to earn though given that the Bruins have a bit of a defensive logjam. Currently they have six defensemen signed to one-way contracts, plus RFA Torey Krug and Dougie Hamilton. With that in mind, Warsofsky currently looks like the ninth defensemen in the Bruins' depth charts, although any trade or significant injury could push him into the lineup next season.

The Boston Bruins have signed David Warsofsky to a one-year, two-way contract.

Warsofsky comes with a $600,000 annual cap hit if he plays in the NHL. He had a goal and two points in six games with Boston last season.

David Warsofsky was sent back down to Providence in the AHL.

The 23 year-old blueliner filled in for Bruins captain Zdeno Chara, who left the team early to carry Slovakia's flag at the Olympic ceremonies. Warsofsky went -2 in his first game, but had an assist and was a +3 in Saturday's win over Ottawa.

Boston has called up defenseman David Warsofsky.

Zdeno Chara will miss two games this week to carry Slovakia's flag at the opening ceremonies of the Winter Olympics, so Warsofsky will add some depth to the team's back end. He has one goal in four NHL appearances this year.

David Warsofsky, who scored a beautiful goal in Boston's 4-3 loss to Ottawa Saturday night, was assigned to Providence of the AHL Sunday.

He was called up on an emergency basis due to Zdeno Chara's unavailability Saturday. Warsofsky seems to have a bright future and he will likely be back in Boston should the Bruins suffer another injury on their blueline.
