|October 4, 2014: Zatkoff Cut By Pens On Saturday|
The Penguins placed Zatkoff on waivers Saturday.His fate was pretty much sealed after new GM Jim Rutherford signed fellow goalie, Thomas Greiss, to a contract over the summer. Zatkoff's $600K salary is reasonable enough for another organization to consider picking it up. Otherwise, he'll toil for AHL Wilkes-Barre and await an injury to starter Marc-Andre Fleury or Greiss.

Zatkoff made 18 saves in a 3-2 overtime victory against Minnesota on Thursday.He started twice against the Wild in 2013-14 and split the decisions with a win and a loss. Zatkoff is in the fight of his life right now to back up starter Marc-Andre Fleury as new head coach Mike Johnston has taken a liking to the newly-acquired Thomas Greiss (who was specifically brought in by new GM Jim Rutherford). As a result, it wouldn't be surprising to see Zatkoff open the season in the AHL.
