Minnesota Wild forward Tyler Graovac has cleared waivers and will be reassigned the the Iowa Wild of the AHL.

Graovac was placed on waivers on Feb. 13 when the Wild called up forwards Alex Tuch and Zack Mitchell and sent defenseman Jonas Brodin to the injured reserve.

Despite many NHL teams needing depth in their third and fourth lines before the March 1 trade deadline, Graovac cleared waivers and will resume play with the Iowa Wild. He has recorded 91 points in 182 career games with Iowa, including four points in six games this season. The 23-year-old scored six goals in 45 games with Minnesota this season.
