After missing the last week with an upper-body injury, Par Lindholm is finally going on injured reserve for the Boston Bruins. The team has recalled Zachary Senyshyn in his place, giving them another option while David Backes also remains out following his recent collision.
Senyshyn, 22, is one of the infamous players selected by Boston in 2015 when they had three consecutive first-round picks. His struggles as a professional have been amplified by the success of those taken after him—Mathew Barzal, Kyle Connor and Thomas Chabot happened to go in the next three picks—but there is still time for him to carve out some sort of NHL career.
In 12 games with the Providence Bruins this season Senyshyn has just three points and looked completely absent early on, but may get a chance anyway as Boston travels to Montreal. The young forward played in two games for the NHL team last season and scored a goal, hopefully a sign of things to come this time around.
