Boll played with a "bad back" this postseason.

EDGE Analysis

There's been no indication that Boll's injury will be a long-term ordeal, so he should be ready for the start of next season's training camp. Either way, his health shouldn't be of much concern to fantasy owners. The 31-year-old winger only managed to pick up three assists in 51 games this season.

Boll will play Friday in Game 2 against the Oilers, Greg Beacham of the Associated Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Boll will take the place of Nick Ritchie; both players are gritty, but it's Ritchie with the offensive skills, so this lineup change is a bit surprising to us. While Boll is far more experienced in terms of actual NHL service time, he's only appeared in three playoff games in nine years, and none since he was a member of the Blue Jackets in the 2013-14 season.

Boll was a healthy scratch for the second consecutive game Sunday against Vancouver.

EDGE Analysis

With just two assists and only nine shots on net through 41 games this season, Boll's only fantasy appeal was his contribution in the PIM column (73). Now that he's likely to watch from the press box most nights, he's nothing more than a desperation option, and counting on Boll in any setting is ill-advised.

Boll posted an assist with a plus-1 in Saturday's 5-3 loss against the Wild.

EDGE Analysis

Boll isn't on the ice for his offensive skills, he is on the ice as a protector for the star players in Anaheim. He racks up plenty of penalty minutes in limited ice time, and he has racked up 34 hits in 33 games. Still, the enforcer is only worth a look in the very deepest of pools.

Boll picked up an assist and posted a plus-1 rating against the Flyers on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Boll collected just 19 points through 227 games over his final five seasons with the Blue Jackets, so he's unlikely to morph into much of an offensive presence for the Ducks. He does pile up the tallies in the penalty minutes and hits columns, though. Boll has six PIM and five hits through his first four games, and when he's in the lineup, you can expect contributions in those categories.

Boll signed a two-year contract with the Ducks on Tuesday that will net him an average salary of $900,000 per year, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

After spending the first nine years of his career with the Blue Jackets, Boll will get a change of scenery, as he"ll head to the Ducks for the 2016-17 campaign. However, the 30-year-old winger notched just three points this past year and hasn't recorded over six points in five straight seasons, meaning his fantasy value will remain severely restricted. Injury concerns only add to his poor fantasy outlook, so he may be a player to avoid unless he sees an increased role with his new team.

The Blue Jackets placed Boll on unconditional waivers Thursday with the intent to buy out his contract, Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch reports.

EDGE Analysis

Columbus is clearing up cap space ahead of the July 1 signing period. Placing him on unconditional waivers is the first step in the process and if he clears, Boll will end up saving the team $1.33 million in 2016-17 while limiting the buyout cap hit to $566,666 in each of the next two seasons. Boll plays with an edge and really gets under the skin of opponents. However, he's a career fourth-liner who only averaged 6:39 of ice time in 30 games last season. Injuries are also a concern when it comes to the 30-year-old winger.

Boll has served his four-game suspension and is eligible to return to the lineup against the Hurricanes on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Boll was given a heftier suspension under the leagues repeat offender rules, so he will need to be on his best behavior to avoid increased penalties over the next 18 months. Unless you are in need of PIM, it would be wise to avoid the winger for your daily lineups as he has tallied a paltry two points on the year and is averaging 6:33 in ice time per game.

Boll received a four-game suspension from the NHL for his hit on Philadelphia's Pierre-Edouard Bellemare.

EDGE Analysis

Boll was considered a repeat offender for the hit, which played a role in the length of the ban. In total, the winger will forfeit over $82,000 while sitting on the sidelines. In terms of fantasy value, Boll offers next to none. This season the 29-year-old is averaging a meager 6:33 of ice time per game and has tallied only two points.

Boll will not be in Thursday's lineup against Carolina.

EDGE Analysis

The same applies to Rene Bourque, though Boll's absence from the Columbus lineup only affects those in fantasy leagues where his PIM (59 in 28 games) and hits (49) factor in.
