[UPDATE: 2:00 p.m.] WILMINGTON -- The Bruins assigned forward Zach Hamill to Providence Tuesday, hours after he cleared waivers. The B's had placed Hamill, their 2007 first-round pick, on waivers Monday.
In 16 NHL games this season, Hamill has no goals and two assists. The eighth overall pick in 2007, Hamill has yet to score an NHL goal in his career.
With Hamill not on the NHL roster, Jordan Caron will continue to be the team's extra forward, though Caron will remain in the lineup with Nathan Horton still dealing with a concussion.

According to a major league source, there is 'no traction' in talks between the Red Sox and free agent pitcher Roy Oswalt. While there always remains a possibility the two sides could come to an agreement, such a scenario doesn't seem likely at this point.
Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington stated at last week's Town Hall even in Worcester that adding another pitcher like Oswalt was unlikely and that there was a good chance the current group of starters would be what the Red Sox roll out when pitchers and catchers report to spring training on Feb. 19.
"We wouldn’t rule out adding a starter, but I think it’s unlikely at this point," Cherington told reporters. "I think we’re going to keep looking for ways to improve the team, including the pitching staff, but I wouldn’t expect any major changes between now and the [spring training] report date."
Knicks fans have found a hero in Harvard product Jeremy Lin, who scored 28 points Monday night in his first career start and led his shorthanded team past the Jazz.
But New York coach Mike D'Antoni was not pleased with the Madison Square Garden faithful, who booed Jared Jeffries on an inconsistent night for the Knicks forward who was filling in for Amar'e Stoudemire (with his family in Florida after the death of his brother).
"Indulge me for a second, anybody who boos Jared Jeffries has got to reexamine their life a little bit," D'Antoni said after Jeffries scored 13 points while shooting 3-for-9 and missing a couple of layups in the process. "I love our fans and I like Madison Square Garden, the arena, but here's a guy who came back to us, minimum contract. He could've gone to a lot of other teams. He plays as hard as anybody could possibly ever play, with injuries, everything you ask him. He takes every charge, every dirty play,...
