Penguins cut ties with ex-Leafs forward after Dubas' poor judgment

His time with the team is over.



The Pittsburgh Penguins have managed to win two straight games, including a 10-2 laugher over the NHL-worst San Jose Sharks. However, still find themselves in last place in the NHL's Metropolitan Division. 

In the wake of last night's 2-0 victory over the Anaheim Ducks at Honda Center, they've decided to ditch one particular member of the team. Forward Andreas Johnsson, who signed with the team this summer, has been placed on waivers with the purposes of having his contract terminated. 

Johnsson, who didn't make the Penguins roster out of training camp, was assigned to the American Hockey League affiliate Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins, but didn't appear in a game with them. 

He's now reportedly heading overseas to play in his native Sweden: 

In his 259-game NHL career, Johnsson has accumulated 48 goals and 68 assists, resulting in a total of 116 points. He has previously played for the Toronto Maple Leafs, the New Jersey Devils, and the San Jose Sharks.
