Career Potential: Enforcer with a little upside.

For the AHL? Why not pick up Boychuk instead? Pittsburgh claimed him.

Solid 4th line depth for the Buds.

How well can this guy fight?

I think Pittsburgh would have had a higher waiver priority than Toronto?

Zach Boychuk is one of those guys that are a bubble 3rd liner. He'll play in Pittsburgh because they like those type of players, but if you would rather have him than Frattin, then that's the choice you have to make.

With Brown injured for the next week maybe it's insurance and competition for the 4th line? Be tough or get out of the line up? Anyone know if he's quick or not?

I don't know much about him, but I believe he fights and grinds. Could be a move to add some toughness to the line up with Brown injured and our depth depleting with injuries.

Waiting for the inevitable whining for Toronto claiming a tough guy.

I hope he can actually play a bit and will replace Orr.

Yea, he'll have to clear waivers, but if he gets claimed again, who cares?

I'd assume this is insurance for Brown injury.

I think this is a very smart move.

Why is it so wrong to carry 2 healthy scratch forwards with an extra game a week this year and for the load that Brown and Orr have to carry to fight almost nightly, it will take its toll as we've already seen.

A big guy who doesn't skate at the NHL level, I think staff are feeding us crowd pleaser guys to hide the fact we aren't overly good. And it works! I love the fights
