There doesn't appear to be any official word yet, but the Pens have waived John Leclair.
He likely has little trade value, so once he clears waivers, he could still remain with the team. He could also be sent to Wilkes-Barre. He could also be released from the team, though I'm not sure they'd do that.
Let's hope that someone picks him up and that he has the chance to go out on his own terms.
Hat tip to Faux for the heads-up. Thanks!
