BREAKING: Zach Boychuk claimed on waivers, Brandon Yip placed on IR


-----

Nashville made two moves today that could be the initial signaling of changes through the lineup. Zach Boychuk, 14th overall pick in the 2008 draft, was claimed off of waivers from Pittsburgh. Also, Brandon Yip was placed on IR as well.

While those two moves aren’t huge sweeping changes, they are enough to send a message to the rest of the team. Boychuk and fellow waiver claimee Bobby Butler will be battling for spots, most likely playing on Friday vs Edmonton. That being the case, the message is becoming much clearer.

It’ll be interesting to see come practice tomorrow for the team, but right now the writing is clearly on the wall.

Press release from the Nashville Predators PR department:

“Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club claimed forward Zach Boychuk on waivers from the Pittsburgh Penguins and placed forward Brandon Yip on injured reserve. Boychuk is on a two-way contract worth $625,000 and the NHL level and $105,000 at the AHL level in 2012-13.

Boychuk, 23 (10/4/89), has been held scoreless in eight NHL games with the Pittsburgh Penguins and Carolina Hurricanes in 2012-13. In 80 career NHL contests since 2008-09, the Airdrie, Alta., native has 18 points (7g-11a) in 80 career contests with Pittsburgh and Carolina. Boychuk started the 2012-13 season with Carolina’s primary developmental affiliate, the Charlotte Checkers, amassing 32 points (16g-16a) in 37 games.

Drafted by the Hurricanes in the first round (14th overall) of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft, Boychuk was a member of back-to-back Canadian World Junior Championship-winning teams in 2008 and 2009. He was teammates with current Predator forward Matt Halischuk on the 2008 team, and Preds defenseman Ryan Ellis on the 2009 team.”
