Hopefully Adam Clendening owns a good suitcase.

On Tuesday, TVA reported that Clendening was placed on waivers by Anaheim, just 10 days after the Ducks acquired him in the Carl HagelinDavid Perron trade with Pittsburgh.

The Ducks exposed Clendening to waivers without having dressed him for a single game.

Taken 36th overall by Chicago in 2011, Clendening has been all over the place since making his NHL debut with the ‘Hawks last season. After getting recalled from Rockford, making his big-league debut and appearing in four games, he was traded from Chicago to Vancouver, appearing in 17 games as a Canuck and 11 with the club’s AHL affiliate in Utica.

This past offseason, he was traded to Pittsburgh in the Brandon SutterNick Bonino deal, and went on to play in nine games for the Pens, and another six for AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.

Given he’s still only 23 years old, a right-handed shot and blessed with some offensive talent, it’s possible Clendening will be scooped off waivers. He’s currently on a one-year deal with a $761,250 cap hit.
