According to Renaud Lavoie of TVA, the Chicago Blackhawks have placed forward Jeremy Morin and Corey Tropp on waivers on Friday. Morin and Tropp were both acquired from the Blue Jackets in the deal sending Brandon Saad to Columbus.
Morin, 24, was originally selected by the Atlanta Thrashers in the second round (45th overall) in the 2009 NHL Draft. He was acquired by the Blackhawks in the summer of 2010 in the blockbuster deal that sent, among others, Dustin Byfuglien to Atlanta.
In December of last year, the Hawks traded Morin to Columbus for defensemen Tim Erixon, who was later placed on waivers; Erixon was claimed by Toronto.
Morin has scored 10 goals with 12 assists in 82 regular season games at the NHL level.
