With Pavel Buchnevich nearing a return, the Rangers placed forward Josh Jooris on waivers today. Signed as a depth move, the 26-year old center got into 12 games tallying a goal and assist with six penalty minutes.
For Jooris, it became a numbers game. With Oscar Lindberg finally playing better and Hartford recall Marek Hrivik gaining the coach’s trust, there wasn’t any room for the former Flame.
However, the Coyotes claimed him. So, the hard worker will get another opportunity with Arizona. He is a fourth liner who brings energy and can kill penalties. Even though it didn’t work out in New York City, we wish Jooris the best of luck with his new team.
