The New York Rangers made the shocking move today of waiving veteran Barclay Goodrow, and now the veteran may be heading to a very familiar team.

After a disappointing end to their Stanley Cup Playoff push, the New York Rangers have kick-started their off-season on Tuesday with a shocking move, as they waived playoff hero Barclay Goodrow.

The Rangers have placed Barclay Goodrow on waivers

If this wasn't shocking enough, a report from Mollie Walker of the New York Post has revealed that a shocking team in the San Jose Sharks are looking to claim their former forward on waivers.

"there is belief there is a pre-arranged deal for the Sharks to claim Goodrow, who spent the first six seasons of his NHL career in San Jose."

It looks like Barclay Goodrow may be returning to his roots in San Jose per

Goodrow started his career in San Jose before spending the last three seasons in New York, where he struggled to fire in 2023-24, tallying just 12 points in 80 games played. That came on the back of two career years with the Rangers, but without the production the team expected of him, New York felt it necessary to move on.

With the Sharks still in their rebuild with a very impressive group of prospects, Goodrow could work as a fantastic veteran and potentially even get them a solid return at the trade deadline, but either way, it could be a great move for the young team.
