News: Panik cleared waivers and will be headed to the AHL Marlies on Wednesday, James Mirtle of the Globe and Mail reports.
Impact: Panik was snapped off waivers by the Leafs last season and spent the whole season in the NHL, scoring 11 goals and tallying six assists in 76 games. However, a tough preseason saw Panik clear waivers and will start the season in the AHL. While the Marlies should be a good team this season, Panik will look to make it back to the NHL sooner rather than later for the Leafs.

News: Panik was put on waivers Tuesday for the purpose of reassigning him to the AHL, reports the Toronto Sun.
Impact: Will it be deja vu for the winger, who was grabbed off waivers from Tampa last October? The Leafs needed to make room for the newly claimed Frank Corrado. Panik's fate will be known Wednesday afternoon.
