The New Jersey Devils placed veteran forward Dainius Zubrus on unconditional waivers Wednesday with the purpose of terminating his contract.
The 37-year-old Zubrus has spent the last eight seasons with New Jersey, but was slated to make $3.1 million in 2015-16 in the final campaign of a three-year, $9.3 million deal.
Zubrus endured a difficult 2014-15 season, collecting just four goals and six assists in 74 games while finishing with a minus-9 rating. The 6-foot-5, 225-pound forward had 87 tallies and set up 137 more during his time with the Devils.
