Gelinas was placed on waivers Thursday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

Gelinas has played in just half of the Avs' games this season, tallying a lone helper. If the defenseman goes though waivers unclaimed, he will likely be reassigned to the minors. Even if the team keeps him in the NHL for the time being, the 25-year-old offers minimal fantasy value.
