Preds waive McGrattan

Feb 26, 2013, 12:40 PM EDT

The Nashville Predators have placed Brian McGrattan on waivers.

McGrattan, 31, only appeared in two games for the Predators this season, averaging 6:17 of ice time.

The team re-signed him to a one-year, $600,000 deal last summer after he appeared in 30 games during the 2011-12 campaign, registering two assists and 61 PIM.

Long known as one of the NHL’s fiercest fighters, it’s possible McGrattan could catch on with a team looking to add toughness to the lineup.

For a better sense of McGrattan’s pugilistic prowess, check out this scrap from last season against Toronto’s Jay Rosehill:
