Penguins Forward Jonathan Gruden Clears Waivers



Jonathan Gruden

Pittsburgh Penguins forward Jonathan Gruden has made it through waivers unclaimed.

The Penguins can assign him to their American Hockey League affiliate in Wilkes-Barre, but are not obliged to do so by NHL rules. Although the team did not immediately announce its plans for Gruden, who has one goal and no assists in 11 games with the Penguins this season, it was expected to send him to the AHL.

He accompanied the team to Ottawa for its game against the Senators tonight at 7:08, and participated in the game-day skate, albeit as a spare defenseman.

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