The Florida Panthers have placed right winger Seth Griffith on waivers, reports Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman (Twitter link). It’s the third roster move the team has made today after demoting center Denis Malgin and recalling goalie Reto Berra from Springfield of the AHL.
Griffith has played in 21 games with the Panthers this season, collecting five assists while averaging over 13 minutes a night in ice time. However, he has been a frequent healthy scratch lately, playing in just one of Florida’s last eight games.
The 24 year old is no stranger to the waiver wire this season as this is the third time he has been waived. After the Bruins waived him at the end of training camp, Toronto picked him up. He wasn’t there for too long though as after three games with the Leafs, he hit the wire again when the Panthers added him.
In his career, Griffith has played in 58 NHL games between Boston, Toronto, and Florida, recording six goals and ten assists. He has been much more of a producer at the minor league level though; he put up 77 points in just 57 games with the Bruins’ AHL affiliate in 2015-16. However, his size (just 5’9) could scare some potential suitors off.
On the other hand, he has been claimed twice already this season so there may be some teams who may still be interested in giving him a shot.
