Brennan cleared waivers along with Andy Miele, Chris Conner, Greg Carey and Petr Straka on Saturday. Those five players are now headed for AHL Lehigh Valley. Brennan has just 13 points in 53 games at the NHL level, suggesting that he hasn't realized his full potential despite raising eyebrows as Buffalo's second-round draft selection in 2007. However, he'll presumably be a call-up option when injuries threaten the parent club this season.
Brennan, along with four other players, were waived by the Flyers on Friday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports. Brennan, along with Andy Miele, Chris Conner, Greg Carey, and Petr Straka, will be reassigned to AHL Lehigh Valley unless they are claimed off the waiver wire by another team. The 27-year-old Brennan spent last season with the Maple Leafs where he appeared in seven NHL contests and averaged 15:06 in ice time per night. The blueliner performed significantly better in the minors and was one tally shy of reaching the point-per-game mark and could offer the most fantasy upside among the waived players if called up.
Brennan agreed to terms on a two-year, two-way contract with the Flyers on Tuesday, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Brennan tallied just one goal during his brief seven-game stint with the Maple Leafs last season. Primarily an AHL player thus far in his career, the 27-year-old blueliner can be expected to begin the season in the minors, but could be called up if the Flyers get bit by the injury bug.
Brennan scored his first goal since the 2012-13 season in Monday's 4-3 loss to the Panthers. It was T.J.'s fourth game of the season. He's an offensive wizard, but a liability in his own zone (at least until now). Brennan is getting a late-season shot, but would be better served in another organization. He just doesn't fit the Leafs' mould.
Brennan was recalled from AHL Toronto on Thursday. Brennan has been an offensive force with the Marlies this season, averaging a point per game through 67 contests. A second-round pick from the 2007 NHL Entry Draft, Brennan seems to be unfazed by AHL competition yet the 26-year-old has only appeared in 47 NHL games, producing 12 points in that span.
