Troy Bodie placed on waivers.

The Ducks have placed Troy Bodie on waivers, giving the other NHL teams until 9 a.m. tomorrow to claim him. The 25-year-old winger has one assist and seven penalty minutes in nine games this season after making the Ducks’ opening-day roster for the first time.

Bodie had been a healthy scratch in eight straight games, with the team going in a more offensive-oriented direction for the third line after Kyle Palmieri and Nick Bonino were recalled from the American Hockey League. Bodie figured to be further pressed for playing time once Kyle Chipchura (concussion) and Joffrey Lupul (back) were cleared to play.
