The Toronto Maple Leafs have placed right winger Matt Frattin on waivers.

Frattin, 26, has been sparsely used by the club since reacquring him from the Columbus Blue Jackets in July. The Edmonton native has only appeared in six games for the Leafs this season.

Originally drafted in the fourth round of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft by the Leafs, Frattin was dealt in June of 2013 to the Los Angeles Kings as part of the Jonathan Bernier trade. He appeared in only 40 games for the Kings last season before being dealt at the deadline to the Blue Jackets with a pair of draft picks for Marian Gaborik. Frattin returned to the Leafs in a trade for Jerry D'Amigo.

In his fourth NHL season, Frattin's career-best numbers came in the 2011-12 season where he scored eight goals and added seven assists in 53 games.

If unclaimed by noon on Thursday, Frattin will be assigned to the Toronto Marlies of the AHL.
