Bollig was waived by San Jose on Monday, Rick Ralph of TSN 1290 Winnipeg reports.

EDGE Analysis

A scrappy winger, Bollig scored on his only shot through three games during the preseason, but he also tacked on 14 PIM. The Sharks evidently know that he's little more than an enforcer type.

Bollig signed a one-year contract with the Sharks on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Now 30 years old, Bollig spent last season with AHL Stockton where he accrued 11 goals and 11 assists over 60 games. The way things are shaping up in San Jose, though, Bollig seems to be a candidate for considerable time at left wing behind only Jannik Hansen and Melker Karlsson during the season ahead, barring any future acquisitions by the Sharks.

Bollig was waived by the Flames on Monday, Chris Johnston of Sportsnet reports.

EDGE Analysis

If unclaimed, Bollig will be reassigned to the minors where he last played during the 2012-13 campaign while with the Rockford IceHogs. With Calgary this past season, the 29-year-old managed a meager four points in 54 contests along with 103 PIM. Even if he gets picked up by another team, the winger offers little in terms of fantasy value and should probably be left off owners' lineups.

Bollig chipped in an assist in Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Ducks.

EDGE Analysis

The gritty winger has been in and out of the lineup this season, with just a goal and two assists in 30 games. He does have 60 PIM to his name, but he'll need to carve out a consistent spot in the lineup to provide much fantasy value.

Bollig was a healthy scratch in Saturday's 5-2 victory over the Penguins.

EDGE Analysis

Bollig has had a couple healthy scratches over the last five games, as the Flames are trying to find the lineup that can get them back the success they had last season. Coaches may be a little unhappy with his 35 penalty minutes in 12 games, and it appears he may occasionally be the odd man out in Calgary.

Bollig required a procedure on his nose after the Flames were eliminated from the postseason, the Calgary Sun reports.

The surgery shouldn't impact Bollig's preparation for the coming season. The fourth-liner tallied only five points in 62 games this season, but did pick up 88 PIM.

Bollig lit the lamp in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime victory over the Ducks in Game 3.

Bollig doesn't put the puck in the net all that often, but he has come up with big goals in both pivotal Game 3s in the first two rounds of the playoffs. He also has three 10-plus penalty minute games in these playoffs, more of what is his specialty.

Bollig scored the first goal in Sunday's Game 3 win over the Canucks.

Bollig hadn't found twine since Feb. 2 until his wrist shot got past Canucks goalie Eddie Lack to kick off the night's scoring. The winger is best known for his skills as a fighter, which he put on display during the skirmish late in the Game 2 loss.
