Josh Jooris Waived, Claimed By Arizona


New Rangers acquisition Josh Jooris’s time in blue has come to an end, as the free agent signee was placed on waivers following the Rangers‘ brief road trips to Winnipeg and Chicago, the latter of which he was a healthy scratch for.

The 26-year old Jooris began his career with the Calgary Flames, making the team after being granted a professional tryout in 2013. He would go on to play 119 games with the Flames between 2014-16, tallying 37 points. He also took the ice for nine of games the Flames’ appearance in the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Jooris signed a one-year deal with the Rangers this past offseason, and appeared in 12 games before his departure. In that dozen, he had a goal and an assist each. Jooris missed some time due to a separated shoulder injury suffered an October game against Boston.

Ironically, Jooris’s lone goal in New York came against the team that picked him up, the Arizona Coyotes. Had he cleared waivers, Jooris would’ve been sent down to the Rangers’ AHL affiliate in Hartford.
