Pens waive Ebbett


Pittsburgh placed veteran forward Andrew Ebbett on waivers Thursday, per TVA.

Ebbett, 32, has appeared in 17 games for the Pens this year, scoring one goal and five points. The decision to waive him comes one day after the club grabbed ex-Oilers and Preds center Mark Arcobello off waivers — and it’s fair to suggest that Arcobello, 26, is really just a younger version of Ebbett.

Both are diminutive, offensively inclined centers that’ve shuffled between the NHL and AHL throughout their professional careers. If he clears, Ebbett will be off to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, where he’s scored five goals and 17 points in 17 games this year.
