The Florida Panthers placed forward Brett Connolly on waivers Sunday, according to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman.

Connolly, 28, is in the second season of a four-year, $14-million deal he signed with the Panthers ahead of the 2019-20 campaign.

The 6-foot-3 winger tallied 19 goals and 14 assists over 69 games last season but has just one goal and three points through 16 contests in 2020-21.

Selected sixth overall by the Tampa Bay Lightning in the 2010 NHL Draft, Connolly has amassed 99 goals and 191 points over 512 career outings.

Florida has 13 wins in its opening 20 games for the first time since the 1995-96 campaign.
