The New York Islanders placed winger Pierre-Marc Bouchard on waivers Monday.

The move is believed to make room for AHL scoring leader Ryan Strome to be added into the Islanders' lineup.

The 29-year-old Bouchard signed a one-year, $2 million contract in the offseason and has scored just four goals and five assists in 29 games this season.

Teams have until noon on Tuesday to put in a claim on Bouchard.

Bouchard was drafted by the Minnesota Wild in the first round (8th overall) of the 2002 NHL Entry Draft.
