Penguins put Jimmy Hayes, 5 other players on waivers

The Penguins’ Garrett Wilson beats Blue Jackets goaltender Jean-Francois Berube in the third period Saturday, Sept. 22, 2018 at PPG Paints Arena.

In preparation for Sunday night’s round of cuts, the Penguins put six players on waivers Sunday afternoon.

Forwards Jimmy Hayes, Garrett Wilson and Tobias Lindberg, defensemen Chris Summers and Stefan Elliott and goalie John Muse are on waivers. If they’re not claimed Monday, they can be assigned to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the AHL.

Forwards Anthony Angello, Teddy Blueger, Joseph Cramarossa, Thomas Di Pauli, Ryan Haggerty, Adam Johnson, Sam Lafferty, Sam Miletic and Linus Olund and defensemen Will O’Neill, Ethan Prow and Jeff Taylor did not need to clear waivers and were sent down.

Hayes is the most accomplished player of the group, having played 334 NHL games and posting a 19-goal season with Florida in 2014-15. He opened camp with an outside shot at winning a fourth-line forward position.

The cuts leave the Penguins with 27 players on the roster. If center Riley Sheahan is back to health after a lower-body injury and nothing unexpected happens, they’ll need to cut four more before their Oct. 4 season opener against Washington.

Winger Zach Aston-Reese, defensemen Juuso Riikola and Zach Trotman and goalie Tristan Jarry are the most likely candidates to feel the ax.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper.

Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
