Gazdic has signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Flames. Gazdic saw action in just 11 games for the Devils last season, as he spent most of his time in the AHL with their affiliate in Albany. He should provide some extra depth for the Flames after inking a one-year deal Sunday, but it wouldn't be surprising if he saw a bunch of time in the AHL again during the upcoming campaign.
Gazdic was routed to AHL Albany on Friday. He's barely averaged seven minutes of ice time this season, so Gazdic shouldn't even been a blip on the fantasy radar.
The Devils recalled Gazdic from AHL Albany on Tuesday. The Devils are pretty banged up at forward, so Gazdic will slot into the lineup immediately, skating with Blake Coleman and Ben Thomson on New Jersey's fourth line Tuesday against Philadelphia. The 27-year-old winger has failed to tally a single point in 10 games with the big club this season, so he won't be a useful option in daily contests against the Flyers.
The Devils waived Gazdic on Thursday, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports. Gazdic has been a healthy scratch more often than not this season, and has failed to tally a single point in the 10 games he's drawn into, so this move doesn't come as much of a surprise. The 27-year-old winger will likely be assigned to AHL Albany if he isn't claimed off waivers by another club.
Gazdic played in consecutive games Saturday against the Flyers and Tuesday against the Kings after not dressing for a contest since Jan. 7. Gazdic didn't skate more than 6:10 in either contest, as his role is minuscule even when he does suit up. Even his friends and family likely don't own this man in their leagues considering he has no points and 12 penalty minutes in 10 appearances.
