On September 10, the Boston Bruins signed former Capital Daniel Winnik to a professional tryout agreement.
Selon mes contacts nord-américains à Berne pour la NHL, @officialGSHC va engager Daniel Winnik comme nouvel étranger. (La piste Scottie Upshall aurait été l’alternative)
Pour raisons familiales, Antoine Vermette n’a pas souhaité rejoindre l’Europe. #RTSsport

During the Bruins’ preseason, Winnik made four appearances, scoring 1 goal, 1 assist, and notching 6 shots on goal. He also spent some time on both the power play and penalty kill, with part of the Bruins squad away for the China Games.
Over his 81 games played in the 2017-18 season, while with the Minnesota Wild, Winnik tallied 6 goals and 17 assists.
It will be a shame to see Winnik leave the NHL, but we wish him all the best with Geneve-Servette HC in Switzerland.
