Other notable free agents.

The Bruins have other notable free agents hitting the open market from the ones mentioned above. Some are fan-favorite names, while some were added to the roster this season as emergency players for injuries.

Trent Frederic

With the Bruins looking to retool their bottom-six forwards, Frederic should find himself in the mix next season, if not in the lineup on Opening Night. There were people calling for him in the playoffs, but having not played a game since May 11, it did not make sense to throw him into the lineup. Frederic will return for another go-around with the B’s.

Jarred Tinordi

Picked up on waivers during the season from the Nashville Predators when the defense was hurt with multiple injuries, Tinordi filled a void during the season, but was also forced into action in the playoffs because of……. wait for it…… injuries on defense. A journeyman, Tinordi will most likely move on to continue his career.

Zach Senyshyn

A first-round pick, No. 15 overall in the 2015 Entry Draft, Senyshyn has not been able to break through finding his way onto the Bruins roster. Six years after being drafted, how much longer does Sweeney hope he can do something in the NHL? The gut feeling is he re-signs for one or two years one last time to prove he can contribute more than just in Providence.

All three players above played last season on contracts under a million and should re-sign for basically the same amounts. If they want more, except for Frederic, Sweeney should move on. Regardless, this will be an interesting offseason when it comes to free agency for the Boston Bruins.
