Beleskey and Kempe to waivers
Frank Seravalli: Beleskey has been scratched for 108 of his past 148 games. He has one more year on his deal after this year. He had signed a five-year, $19 million deal.
Cap Friendly: Beleskey has a $1.9 million salary cap hit for the Rangers this season. The Bruins retained 50 percent of his salary from the Rick Nash trade last year. If he clears waivers and is assigned to the AHL, he’ll still count towards the Rangers cap, but it will be reduced to $875,000.
Boyle’s cancer is in remission
“A test (BCR-ABL1) looks for the leukemia cells in your blood and when I was first diagnosed, it was at 75 percent,” Boyle said Wednesday. “At the end of last season, it was at .08 percent, and in July I was .04 percent. The results showed all zeros on Monday. It’s full molecular remission, and I feel really good. It was kind of the way the progression was happening the last few tests. When I told my wife, she was excited and got emotional.
“The game plan has been working well, and now I’m just going to continue with it. It was good news, but it doesn’t change a whole lot for me and I’ll continue taking the medicine.”
