After just acquiring him last month, the Florida Panthers have placed Gustav Bouramman on unconditional waivers according to Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports. This will likely precede a contract termination, allowing Bouramman to pursue another opportunity elsewhere. The minor league defenseman was sent to Florida by the Minnesota Wild in exchange for future considerations in August.
Bouramman, 22, was a seventh-round pick from the 2015 draft but after another pair of successful seasons in the OHL his professional career hasn’t gone quite so smoothly. Playing most of the 2017-18 campaign in the ECHL, he suited up just 23 times in 2018-19 for the Iowa Wild of the AHL and recorded just two points. Stuck behind a huge number of more experienced defensemen in Florida, it wouldn’t be surprising to see him take his talents back to Sweden for the time being.
A mutual contract termination would make Bouramman an unrestricted free agent and able to sign with any team.
