BOSTON (Ticker) - The Boston Bruins apparently have severed ties with the last of former general manager Mike O'Connell's major acquisitions of the summer of 2005.

According to a report by the Boston Herald on Friday, veteran center Alexei Zhamnov failed his physical on the first day of the Bruins' training camp and was sent home.

Zhamnov, who signed a three-year, $12.3 million contract with Boston last summer, suffered a broken ankle on January 7, ending his 2005-06 season after he recorded just one goal and nine assists in 24 games. He still is owed $8.2 million, which will be covered by insurance.

However, the 35-year-old Russian must have his ankle re-examined midway through the 2006-07 campaign as well as before and during the following season in order to confirm he still is unable to play.
