The Toronto Maple Leafs have placed forward Ryan Dzingel on waivers. 


Dzingel, 29, was acquired by the Maple Leafs on Saturday, along with defenceman Ilya Lyubushkin, from the Arizona Coyotes in exchange for forward Nick Ritchie and a conditional draft pick.

If Dzingel clears waivers, the Maple Leafs intend to assign him to the AHL's Toronto Marlies.

The Wheaton, Ill., native has four goals and seven points in 26 games with the Coyotes this year.

The 6-foo-0 forward has 86 goals and 187 points in 398 games in his career split between the Ottawa Senators, Columbus Blue Jackets, Carolina Hurricanes, and the Coyotes.
