Florida has put veteran defenseman Matt Gilroy on waivers, according to TVA’s Renaud Lavoie.

Gilroy, 29, signed a one-year, $700,000 deal with the Panthers in July after spending the lockout-shortened ’13 campaign with the Rangers. He had one goal and two points in 16 games with Florida this season, averaging 16:15 TOI per game.

Gilroy is the second veteran defenseman Florida’s waived in recent weeks. On Nov. 8, the club put Ryan Whitney on waivers and, with no takers, proceeded to assign him to AHL San Antonio.

    Maybe Sather won’t notice and we can avoid having him join the Rangers for a third tour of duty as a depth defenseman and bad penalty taker.
