Flyers Place Young Forward On Waivers

The Philadelphia Flyers have placed Connor Bunnaman on waivers.

Bunnaman was dealt the same fate earlier this season, too, but went unclaimed.

Bunnaman has split this season between the Philadelphia Flyers and their AHL affiliate - the Lehigh Valley Phantoms. In 15 games with the NHL club, he has failed to get on the scoresheet and sports a minus-7 rating. With the Phantoms, he has six goals and three assists in 28 games. At the end of the day, it's fair to say that he hasn't taken the world by storm in either league.

With the Flyers, Bunnaman has been utilized as a depth forward. He certainly could handle this role with another organization, so there could be a team willing to give him a shot. He is capable of playing both center and left wing, so that would come in handy when injuries arise. He is also still quite young, so perhaps he can improve from here.

In 54 career games with the Flyers, Bunnaman has one goal and two assists. We will find out on Saturday afternoon if another team is willing to give him a chance.
