TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -The Tampa Bay Lightning placed backup goalie Marc Denis on waivers Friday.
Denis, who's in his ninth NHL season, has been a major disappointment since being acquired from Columbus in a June 2006 trade and signing a three-year, $8.6 million contract. He appeared in 10 games this season, going 1-5 with a 4.05 goals-against average and .859 save percentage.
If the 30-year-old clears waivers Saturday, the Lightning plan to reassign him to Norfolk of the American Hockey League.
Denis entered the season as Johan Holmqvist's backup, but dropped to third-string when the Lightning recalled rookie Karri Ramos from Norfolk last week. Denis was a healthy scratch for the four games Tampa Bay has played since Ramos was promoted and named the starter.
