|(10/10/16) McNeill was waived Monday for the purpose of reassignment, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.|
McNeill made his NHL debut last season, but failed to appear in another contest. In that lone game, the 23-year-old was on the ice for 12:44 and logged just three hits. Drafted 18th overall in the 2011 NHL Draft, the 23-year-old has yet to make the type of impact you would expect from a first-round pick. The center has reached the 40-point mark in each of the previous two AHL campaigns and could go for the three-peat this year as he will probably spend the majority of the season in the minors.
