Zach Boychuk is on the move again.
Boychuk was claimed off waivers by the Nashville Predators on Tuesday, the second time that's happened to him this season. The Pittsburgh Penguins had claimed him from the Carolina Hurricanes on Jan. 31.
The Predators, who claimed Bobby Butler off waivers from the New Jersey Devils on Monday, also placed forward Brandon Yip on injured reserve.
Boychuk is on a two-way contract worth $625,000 at the NHL level and $105,000 at the American Hockey League level.
The 23-year-old forward has been held scoreless in eight games with the Penguins and Hurricanes this season. In 80 career NHL games, the 14th pick in the 2008 NHL Draft has seven goals and 18 points.
Boychuk started the 2012-13 season with the Charlotte Checkers, the Hurricanes' AHL team, where he had 16 goals and 32 points in 37 games.
Boychuk was a member of back-to-back Canadian World Junior Championship-winning teams in 2008 and 2009. He was teammates with current Predators forward Matt Halischuk on the 2008 team and defenseman Ryan Ellis on the 2009 team.
