Report: Connolly placed on waivers by Maple Leafs

The Toronto Maple Leafs intend to place forward Tim Connolly on waivers at noon today, according to a TSN report.

Connolly, 31, signed a two-year, $9.5 million contract two summers ago, but had a disappointing first season with Toronto. In 70 games, he had 13 goals and 23 assists.

Quote of the Day

That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
