Adios, Andrew: Ebbett Placed on Waivers

He gone!
He gone!

According to Bob McKenzie of TSN, the Blackhawks placed Andrew Ebbett on waivers on Friday.

Ebbett was claimed off waivers from Anaheim on October 17. He played in 10 games for the Blackhawks, averaging 10:43 in ice time and scoring just one point.

Strong play from Bryan Bickell, and his size, have made Ebbett’s presence in the lineup irrelevant. He never found a niche on the roster, and didn’t do enough as a fourth line center to keep his spot in Chicago.

Ebbett is the third player to leave the Hawks this season via trade or waivers. Radek Smolenak was placed on waivers when the Hawks returned to the States, and Aaron Johnson was traded in October.
