Courchaine, Hutchinson, Nelson, and Wild have been assigned to the Providence Bruins of the AHL.
Donald, Smotherman and Roussel, all of whom were on tryout agreements, also will report to the WannaBs in hopes of securing pro contracts.
Randell is headed back to Kitchener, Ont., to join the Rangers, his junior club.
The Bruins open their preseason schedule tonight in Montreal against the hated Habs.
