Zboril found himself placed on waivers by the Bruins last Wednesday. 24 hours later, he cleared them, and returned to the AHL.


According to a recent report by Frank Seravalli on Daily Faceoff, the 26-year-old defenseman is actively exploring opportunities with other teams and hopes to get a chance to play elsewhere.

This season, Zboril has scored seven assists in 19 games with Providence. He is presently in the final year of his contract with an average annual value of $1,137,500, a deal he signed in 2022.

Zboril Remains Committed to Play in the NHL

It's worth noting that there have been no discussions regarding contract termination or a potential return to Europe for Zboril.

Here is Seravalli's full statement on the matter:

"On #NHLBruins placing Jakub Zboril on waivers, I'm told the Bruins are accommodating his request to see if another team is interested in giving him an opportunity.

His contract isn't being terminated and he's not going back to Europe."


He could be involved in a trade sooner than later, as the Bruins look to bolster their team ahead of the deadline. Sending him along other players, prospects, or draft picks could free cap space to make a bigger deal.

Do you think the Bruins will make a blockbuster trade before the deadline?
