The Pittsburgh Penguins placed forward John LeClair on waivers Thursday.

LeClair's role with the Penguins has been decreasing over the past few weeks and he was a healthy scratch on Tuesday against the New York Islanders.

The 37-year-old has been playing on the fourth line for the club and averaging just under 12 minutes of ice time a game.

"Hopefully, something will change because it's not a great situation for me," LeClair told the Pittsburgh Post Gazette. "You have to make the best of it, but, hopefully, something happens."

The Post Gazette reported that general manager Ray Shero met with Leclair in order to discuss a solution to the current situation. Leclair referred to the meeting as a "good talk and that's about it."

LeClair is due to make $1.5million this season, the final year of his contract. A trade might be a possibility if Shero can find an interested club.
