SAN JOSE, Calif. — The San Jose Sharks have claimed forward Ryan Dzingel off waivers from the Toronto Maple Leafs.
The Maple Leafs acquired Dzingel, along with defenceman Ilya Lyubushkin, from the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday in exchange for forward Nick Ritchie and a conditional pick.
Toronto placed Dzingel on waivers after the trade with the intent on assigning him to the American Hockey League's Toronto Marlies.
Dzingel, 29, is a seven-season NHL veteran who was first drafted by the Ottawa Senators in the seventh round of the 2011 draft. He played three-and-a-half seasons in Ottawa before he was traded to the Columbus Blue Jackets.
He has since had stints with the Carolina Hurricanes and he made a return to the Senators before he signed this past summer with Arizona.
In 26 games played this season, Dzingel has seven points and 35 penalty minutes.
