Veteran Pittsburgh Penguins forward Mark Recchi clears waivers

Veteran Pittsburgh Penguins forward Mark Recchi has cleared waivers.

The Penguins now have the option to send Recchi to the AHL or negotiate a buyout of his US$1.75-million contract. The 39-year-old winger had been a healthy scratch in seven of the last eight games and did not accompany Pittsburgh on its current road trip through Western Canada.

Recchi has two goals and six assists in 19 games this season.

He won a Stanley Cup with the Penguins in 1991 and Carolina in 2006.

Recchi has 510 goals and 1,341 points in 1,357 career games for the Penguins, Flyers, Canadiens and Hurricanes.
