Boston Bruins forward Glen Murray has cleared waivers.

The Bruins placed Murray on waivers yesterday and no team placed a claim for the 35-year old who has one-year remaining on his contract at $4.15 million.  Sources tell TSN it is likely the Bruins will now buy out the veteran forward.

The team now have a 48 hour window to complete the buyout. The move would save the B's approximately $2.7 million against the cap. 

Boston is currently over the league's $56.7 million salary cap after signing defenceman Dennis Wideman to a multi-year contract extension on Wednesday.

Murray had 17 goals and 13 assists in last season's injury plagued campaign that saw him play only 63 games.

The two-time All-Star missed 19 games with a hip flexor and struggled through his least productive season in a decade.

In 1009 career games the Halifax native has 337 goals and 314 assists.
