Wotherspoon has signed a professional tryout offer with the Devils. Wotherspoon will hope to perform well enough during training camp to secure a contract with New Jersey. The 28-year-old blueliner hasn't appeared in an NHL contest since 2016-17.
Wotherspoon was placed on waivers Monday. Wotherspoon will spend the balance of the upcoming campaign with AHL Lehigh Valley unless he's claimed before noon Tuesday. The 27-year-old posted four goals and 22 points with the Phantoms during the 2019-20 season.
Wotherspoon won't be included on Vancouver's 31-man playoff roster, Adam Kimelman of NHL.com reports. Wotherspoon led AHL Lehigh Valley in defensemen scoring this season with 22 points across 54 games. The club will go with 10 defensemen, as Nate Prosser was also cut from the final submission.
Wotherspoon has been promoted to the Flyers' training camp roster for Phase 3. Wotherspoon led all AHL Lehigh Valley defensemen with 22 points in 54 contests this season and should probably be considered the club's eighth blueliner on the depth chart. In addition to Wotherspoon, the club also added forward German Rubtsov, defensemen Andy Welinski, Nate Prosser, Yegor Zamula and Mark Friedman and goaltenders Alex Lyon and Kirill Ustimenko.
Wotherspoon signed a two-year, two-way contract with the Flyers on Monday. Wotherspoon was waived by the eventual Stanley Cup-champion Blues ahead of the 2018-19 campaign, but he stuck around with AHL San Antonio and proceeded to record four goals and 18 assists over 70 minor-league contests. Still, even with a clean slate, Wotherspoon is merely a depth option for fantasy purposes.
