  • Acquired: From St. Louis Blues in 2010 in exchange for Vladimir Sobotka
  • Position: D
  • Hometown: Marshfield, MA
  • Vitals: 5'8" / 170 lbs
  • Current team: Providence Bruins (AHL)
What we said last year:
His skating, passing and shooting are all highly skilled and position him to potentially make an impact in the future. As bad as his defense is, his offense more than makes up for it in my mind.

This all remains true - Warsofsky has managed to consistently contribute offensively for Providence of the AHL. When partnered with someone who can cover for him defensively, he can be a Krug-style weapon for the team deploying him. He lead all Providence defensemen in scoring last year with six goals and 26 assists through 56 games, and got a cup of coffee in the NHL with Boston, playing six games and registering a goal and an assist.

This year

Warsofsky is about to enter his fourth full professional season, and with the Bruins' logjam on defense, it's unlikely he'll see much ice time again, especially where there are slightly larger defensemen ahead of him on the depth chart with his same skillset. It's very likely that he could be part of a trade to a team who are shallow on defense, with the intention of getting him more NHL ice time. He's proven that he can skate in the big league, but the Bruins current talent pool will continue to prohibit him from doing so. Warsofsky is still young enough that his point totals could continue to climb for a few years yet.


Social Media Minute

Warsofsky is on twitter and instagram, and he's a Lord of the Rings fan, apparently.

What do you guys think? Will Warsofsky stay a Bruin for the next year?
