For the second straight NHL training camp, Bruins forward Zach Senyshyn’s Boston run has ended with the winger placed on waivers.

The 24-year-old Senyshyn’s latest move to the waiver wire comes after a preseason run that included three shots and four hits in two games played. Senyshyn skated in Saturday’s overtime loss and finished with two hits and a takeaway in 11:07 of action.

Senyshyn’s move to waivers was an inevitability more than anything else, really, as he did not skate with any members of the Bruins’ projected NHL roster on anything resembling a consistent basis at any point in camp. The Bruins also have their right-wing grouping — and entire NHL roster for that matter — set entering the season.

Drafted by the Bruins with the No. 15 overall pick in 2015, Senyshyn has totaled one goal (an empty-netter) and three points in 14 total NHL games over the last three seasons. Most recently, Senyshyn appeared in eight games with the Big B’s during the 2021 season, and finished with 10 shots on goal and 11 hits over that sample.

In 192 career games in the AHL, Senyshyn has recorded 40 goals and 39 assists for 79 points.

If Senyshyn clears waivers, he will report to Providence for the start of P-Bruins training camp for the start of another season in the AHL.
