Calgary Flames tough guy Brian McGrattan cleared waivers on Saturday.

The 33-year-old has been a healthy scratch in 34 games this season including the past 14 straight. McGrattan last played on Dec. 6 and has dressed in just eight games this season for the Flames.

Calgary placed him on waivers on Friday.

The forward has four penalty minutes and a minus-2 rating while averaging less than seven minutes a night in ice time this season.

It’s a significant drop off from last season where McGrattan dressed in 76 games recording eight points, a minus-4 rating and 100 penalty minutes.

Update: McGrattan has been assigned to the Adirondack Flames of the American Hockey League.

McGrattan last played in the AHL with the Milwaukee Admirals during the 2012-13 season.
