Gambrell was placed on waivers by the Sharks on Saturday in order to reassign him to the minors, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports.

Gambrell logged 49 games for the Sharks last year in which he registered five goals, seven assists and 77 hits while averaging 16:02 of ice time. The 25-year-old center likely saw his roster spot taken by Jonah Gadjovich who was picked up off the waiver wire by the Sharks on Thursday. Still, Gambrell should be on the shortlist of potential call-ups throughout the year and could still log a decent number of NHL contests.
