Report: Leafs waive Armstrong, intend to buy out deal

The Toronto Maple Leafs have placed Colby Armstrong on waivers with the intention of buying out the final year of his contract, according to multiple reports.

If Armstrong, who would be heading into the final season of a three-year, $9 million contract, does clear waivers and is bought out, the deal will cost the Maple Leafs $1 million in cap space for 2012-13 and 2013-14.

Armstrong had one goal and three points for the Leafs this past season, but also only played 29 games (and only 50 in 2010-11) because of injuries. He had 22 goals and 15 goals in his last two full seasons, both with the Atlanta Thrashers.

Quote of the Day

I was surprised. I knew I got it. It's tough. You never know how hard it is until it registers on the gun. I got pretty much all I could into and you just hope for the best.

— Nashville Predators defenseman Shea Weber after winning the AMP NHL Hardest Shot event at the 2015 Honda NHL All-Star Skills Competition
