Bye bye Boulerice
Today the Flyers waived suspended forward Jesse Boulerice. This could very well mark the end of his NHL career.
By sending him down to the Phantoms (and he'll surely clear waivers), Philadelphia has no intention of letting Boulerice serve his suspension in a Flyers sweater. The move takes his salary off the cap books and frees up a spot on their 23-man roster.
With 24 games left to go on his ban and pointless since the lockout, it's doubtful another NHL team will take a chance on him.
It's yet to be seen how much of Boulerice's suspension the AHL will uphold.
Update: The AHL ruled Boulerice ineligibe to play until Dec. 16.
