A few teams announced they were placing players on waivers in the last few minutes.
The Penguins were the most active team, placing five players up for grabs, including a surprising defenseman.
Kyle Dubas and the Penguins Place Promising Defenseman on Waivers
Pittsburgh announced that they placed Ty Smith
Per Elliotte Friedman:
"Pittsburgh has Ty Smith
on waivers today."
Smith was traded last year from New Jersey in exchange for John Marino
and it looks like he hasn't been able to convince the new management in Pittsburgh that he was essential to the team's success.
However, the Pens' defensive line is stacked. With the recent additions of Erik Karlsson
and Ryan Graves
, it was never going to be easy to make the lineup of a team with major Stanley Cup aspirations.
The Penguins also placed Taylor Fedun
, Jonathan Gruden
, Xavier Ouellet
, Rem Pitlick
, and Ty Smith
DO YOU THINK SMITH WILL BE CLAIMED OFF THE WAIVERS?
