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. Aug 3 - 8:24 AM

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.
Feb 9 - 1:39 PM

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.
Feb 3 - 1:54 PM

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.

David Warsofsky played very well in the Bruins' 4-3 loss to Ottawa Saturday night.

He was recalled on an emergency basis from Providence earlier in the day to take the roster spot of the injured Dennis Seidenberg and because Zdeno Chara was not able to suit up against the Sens. Warsofsky scored a beautiful goal, took two shots, was minus one and blocked three shots in 18:23 of playing time. It will be interesting to see if the Bruins send him back to the minors after Zdeno Chara and Dougie Hamilton return to health.

Boston defenseman David Warsofsky played 12:29 Thursday in his first NHL game in Buffalo and earned a positive review from his coach, Claude Julien.

"I thought as the game went on he got more comfortable," the coach said. "He did a good job. He skated the puck up the ice with confidence. I didn’t mind his game at all. I thought for his first game he handled himself very well." Warsofsky is an offensive-minded defenseman.

David Warsofsky is hoping to get himself involved in the conversation to play on Boston's back end this season.

He plays a similar game to Torey Krug and is looking to earn his way onto the roster at training camp. "(Krug) and I are kind of battling for the same position," said Warsofsky. "But at the same time, we played together all last year (for Providence of the AHL) so it was good to see him go up and be successful. But it is a competition. That's why I'm trying to prove myself. On any team, in any organization, there's always people who want to take the next step and take away somebody's job." It's likely that Warsofsky remains in the minors this season.

David Warsofsky has been sent down to AHL Providence.

Warsofsky spent the Bruins' season opener in the press box. "What you don’t like doing is keeping those young guys not playing," Bruins coach Claude Julien said. "They’re so close by that if need be, it’s easier to call them up knowing they've played and they have a bigger impact than if they’d been sitting around a few weeks." Warsofsky has three goals and 11 points in 31 AHL games this season.

David Warsofsky will probably begin the 2011-12 campaign in the minors.

He has played the past three seasons with Boston University, but concluded last year on an amateur tryout contract with the AHL's Providence Bruins. He has some offensive potential and could be among the first group of call-ups this season.
