The wait is finally over for Zach Bogosian.
Bogosian missed the first five games of the season due to a lower-body injury that he suffered in the preseason.
The veteran defenseman didn't make his 2017-18 debut until December after suffering a lower-body injury, only appearing in 18 games after missing the final 39 contests due to a hip injury. Bogosian underwent hip surgery in the summer.
The 28-year-old is under contract for the next two seasons at a $5.14-million cap hit, per CapFriendly.
The Atlanta Thrashers selected Bogosian with the third-overall pick in the 2008 draft.
