The Flyers put forward Jason Akeson on waivers Thursday.

Akeson, 24, has spent his entire professional career with the Flyers organization since signing as an undrafted free agent in 2011. A dynamic scorer with OHL Kitchener — he had 108 points one year on a team that featured Gabriel Landeskog — Akeson has been a quality scorer at the AHL level, scoring 24 goals and 64 points with Adirondack last season.

In 12 games this year with the Flyers he has no points, with a minus-1 rating and six PIM. His last game came two weeks ago in a 6-3 loss to Montreal.
