The Lightning waived Nieves on Wednesday, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports.

Nieves just signed a one-year, two-way deal with Tampa Bay on Tuesday, so he'll likely be assigned to the team's taxi squad assuming he clears waivers. The 26-year-old forward spent most of the 2019-20 campaign with AHL Hartford, picking up 27 points in 43 games.
