Penguins Put Jonathan Gruden on Waivers



Jonathan Gruden

The Pittsburgh Penguins have placed bottom-six forward Jonathan Gruden on waivers.

If he is not claimed by another team by 2 p.m. Tuesday, they can assign him to their farm team in Wilkes-Barre, although they would be allowed to keep him on the NHL roster.

Gruden, 23, has one goal and no assists in 11 games with the Penguins this season. He also has put up 13 goals and 10 assists in 41 games with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.

The Penguins acquired him from Ottawa in the trade that sent goalie Matt Murray to the Senators in 2020.
