  • Bruins' Parker Wotherspoon: Secures one-year extension

    Wotherspoon inked a one-year, $800,000 contract extension with Boston on Friday, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.

    Wotherspoon had been splitting the sixth-defenseman role with Kevin Shattenkirk for much of the season but injuries to Hampus Lindholm (lower body) and Derek Forbort (undisclosed) have seen Wotherspoon pressed into service more frequently of late. He's collected six helpers and 67 hits through 32 games with the Bruins this year.

  • Bruins' Parker Wotherspoon: Grabs rare point

    Wotherspoon logged an assist, two hits, two blocked shots and five PIM in Wednesday's 6-5 overtime win over the Oilers.

    Wotherspoon had an eventful second period, fighting Corey Perry and then helping out on a Jake DeBrusk tally after the penalty expired. The 26-year-old Wotherspoon could be in the lineup for the rest of the Bruins' road trip, as Hampus Lindholm (undisclosed) is not traveling with the team and Matt Grzelcyk (lower body) was injured Wednesday. Wotherspoon has four helpers, 17 shots on net, 18 PIM, 52 hits and 45 blocked shots through 24 outings, so he's unlikely to be very useful in fantasy.

  • Bruins' Parker Wotherspoon: Back with big club

    Wotherspoon was recalled from AHL Providence on Saturday, per the NHL media site.

    According to Eric Russo of the Bruins' official site, Wotherspoon was paired with Kevin Shattenkirk during Saturday's morning skate. If Wotherspoon doesn't play Saturday versus Tampa Bay, Mason Lohrei will be in the lineup after undergoing some dental work. Wotherspoon has two assists, nine shots on goal, 15 blocked shots and 16 hits in 10 NHL outings this season.

  • Bruins' Parker Wotherspoon: Dropped to minors

    Wotherspoon was sent down to AHL Providence on Friday, per CapFriendly.

    Wotherspoon has served as a healthy scratch for the last two games with Boston. He could be recalled again as an insurance body for Saturday's matchup with Tampa Bay.

  • Bruins' Parker Wotherspoon: Back at practice

    Wotherspoon is practicing with the Bruins on Wednesday, Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic reports, indicating he's been recalled from the minors.

    It appears Wotherspoon's demotion was nothing more than a paper transaction that likely saved the Bruins a bit of long-term cap space or kept him waiver exempt after he previously passed through waivers back in October. Either way, the blueliner was on the ice for practice Wednesday and might be an option to play versus Pittsburgh on Thursday.

  • Bruins' Parker Wotherspoon: Returns to minors

    Wotherspoon was reassigned to AHL Providence on Wednesday, according to Mark Divver of the New England Hockey Journal.

    Wotherspoon has a goal and five points in 19 contests with Providence this season. He's also registered two assists in 10 games with Boston. The 26-year-old was a healthy scratch for Tuesday's 4-1 win over Columbus.

  • Bruins' Parker Wotherspoon: Reassigned to minors

    Wotherspoon was dropped to AHL Providence on Sunday, per CapFriendly.

  • Bruins' Parker Wotherspoon: Recalled Thursday

    Wotherspoon was recalled from AHL Providence on Thursday.

  • Bruins' Parker Wotherspoon: Called up again

    Wotherspoon was called up from AHL Providence on Wednesday, per CapFriendly.

  • Bruins' Parker Wotherspoon: Sent down Tuesday

    Wotherspoon was reassigned to AHL Providence on Tuesday, per CapFriendly.

    Wotherspoon has an assist in three NHL games this season, and he's added six blocked shots and four hits. It's possible Derek Forbort (lower body) could be ready for Thursday's game versus the Islanders, but the Bruins will still need to call up at least one defenseman for that contest.

  • Bruins' Parker Wotherspoon: Brought up from AHL Providence

    Wotherspoon was promoted from the minors Wednesday.

    Wotherspoon saw action in 12 games with the Islanders last season in which he recorded one assist, 10 shots and eight hits while averaging 13:20 of ice time. Due to various blue-line absences, it will likely come down to Wotherspoon, Mason Lohrei and Ian Mitchell for two spots in the lineup against Toronto on Thursday.

  • Bruins' Parker Wotherspoon: Waived Tuesday

    Wotherspoon was placed on waivers Tuesday, Chris Johnston of TSN reports.

    Wotherspoon contributed one assist, seven blocked shots and eight hits in 12 games with the Islanders last season. He also recorded one goal and 12 points in 27 AHL contests with Bridgeport during the 2022-23 campaign. If he clears, the 26-year-old defender will report to AHL Providence.

  • Bruins' Parker Wotherspoon: Heading to Boston

    Wotherspoon signed a one-year, two-way contract with Boston on Saturday, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.

    Wotherspoon had one assist, seven blocked shots and eight hits in 12 games with the Islanders last season. He also collected 12 points in 27 AHL contests with Bridgeport during the 2022-23 campaign. Wotherspoon will probably report to the minors for the start of next season.

  • Islanders' Parker Wotherspoon: Stapled to the bench

    Wotherspoon has been a healthy scratch for 17 straight games.

    The Islanders are in a battle for one of the final two playoff spots in the Eastern Conference, which hasn't allowed any room for a rookie defenseman to have any on-the-job training. The fact that the team doesn't seem to mind keeping Wotherspoon wasting away in the press box rather than playing in the AHL might tell you all you need to know about how they feel about his future. He would be playing somewhere if he were a top prospect for the organization.

  • Islanders' Parker Wotherspoon: Healthy scratch for 13 straight

    Wotherspoon has been a healthy scratch for 13 straight and 15 of the last 16 games.

    The Islanders have been crushed by injuries, but it's to their forward corps, not the defense. Wotherspoon has appeared in 12 games this season, and although he's only registered one point, an assist, he has logged a rating of plus-5. He is currently the seventh defenseman for the Islanders and will likely continue to be a healthy scratch until one of the team's top-six defenders either suffers an injury or needs a night off to rest.

  • Islanders' Parker Wotherspoon: Healthy scratch once again

    Wotherspoon was a healthy scratch for the eighth straight game Saturday versus the Canadiens.

    This scratch was also the 10th time in 11 games that Wotherspoon has been relegated to the bench. One could argue that it might be much more beneficial for the young defender to play every day in the AHL rather than once in a blue moon in the NHL. On the season, Wotherspoon has one point, an assist, with a rating of plus-5 in 12 games for the Islanders.

  • Islanders' Parker Wotherspoon: Healthy scratch once again

    Wotherspoon was a healthy scratch for the fourth straight game Saturday versus the Golden Knights, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    The Islanders' sixth spot on the blue line has been a revolving door. The season started with Robin Salo in the role; then it went to Sebastian Aho, Wotherspoon, and now Samuel Bolduc. Aho has solidified himself as that sixth defender when the defensive corps is healthy, something that is expected to be the case when the Islanders return to action Feb. 6. As a result, Wotherspoon could find himself remaining a healthy scratch as the seventh defender or back in the AHL, barring additional injuries on the back end.

  • Islanders' Parker Wotherspoon: Still searching for first goal

    Wotherspoon has only one point, an assist, in his first 10 NHL games.

    Wotherspoon has been a surprise everyday player for the team since late December. Adam Pelech (head) is still out of the lineup, and coach Lane Lambert seems to have lost faith in Robin Salo due to several defensive miscues. Wotherspoon will see himself back in the AHL or on the bench once Pelech, who has begun skating with the team, returns to action.
