Griffith was claimed off waivers by the Maple Leafs on Friday, Chris Johnston of Sportsnet reports. Griffith has been tossed around the league like a hot potato this season, having already been waived three times, and now the original Bruin will be hoping the Buds keep him around after setting him on the wire, only for the Panthers to snag him in November of 2016. Here's a guy who blew up for 24 goals and 53 assists with AHL Providence in 2015-16, so it would behoove the Maple Leafs to give him an honest chance to shine.
Griffith was placed on waivers Thursday, Elliotte Friedman of Hockey Night in Canada reports. This will be Griffith's third time on waivers this season so it is certainly possible that he will once again be snatched up by another team. If the winger clears this time, he will be reassigned to AHL Springfield.
Griffith (concussion) will slot back into the lineup Friday night opposite the Islanders, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports. Griffith missed the past four games, but he'll be ready to reprise his role on the top line with feisty pivot Vincent Trocheck and Jaromir Jagr, the ageless wonder. This also means that Denis Malgin will watch the upcoming contest from the press box.
Griffith (concussion) is no longer listed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site. While there's been no update from the team or any of its beat reporters on Griffith's status, the removal from IR suggests that he may be ready for Friday's home game against the Islanders. If the Ontario native does play, the Panthers will be happy to have the depth that he provides, but he likely won't move the needle for the majority of fantasy owners.
Griffith (concussion) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, TSN reports. No surprise here, as we relayed a report earlier in the day noting that Griffith will miss at least one week. He'll be eligible to return for a Jan. 13 contest against the Islanders, but there's a great deal of variability in terms of how quickly a given player can physically return from a concussion. In other words, we wouldn't automatically assume that Griffith will be ready at that time.
