News: Pinizzotto has cleared waivers, TSN's Darren Dreger reports.
Impact: As a 30-year-old with just 36 career NHL appearances, Pinizzotto offers little in the way of upside. He scored four points (two goals) in 18 games with the Oilers this season.

News: Pinizzotto was waived by the Oilers on Monday, TSN.ca reports.
Impact: After Matt Fraser was made available off waivers by the Bruins, the Oilers decided to scoop him up, determining he'd be an upgrade over Pinizzotto in the team's bottom six. Pinizzotto provided four points in 18 games during his time with Edmonton, but the long-time AHLer was never viewed as a permanent solution on the fourth line. He's expected to clear waivers and report to AHL Oklahoma City.
